    Great doctor. Been a patient for years. Recently I've had a hard time with the office staff. Had to call approximately 20 times to get someone on the phone in the Northbrook office and even when I did finally get a person it call forwarded me to someone in the Chicago office. Had to call back to reschedule and the woman I spoke to was so nasty that I told her to cancel the appointment and I would find a new doctor.

    Clear Respectful Really listened Took all the time needed to explain condition and care plan - including interpreting test results on the computer. i would recommend him to anyone - even if they already had an ophthalmologist
