in Gilbertsville, pa |
I can see colors and my right eye has rings around lights, vision is good. Left eye is blurry even with new lenses.
Reading, PA |
Dr. Primack is an excellent Dr. and I trust him with my bad eyes, however his bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. He doesn't take the time to really talk with you and his answers are very short. You just get the feeling that he's so focused on your eyes that he could do without the rest of you. In other words, just let him do his work and get on with it.
in Spring City, PA |
Dr. Primack is very good at what he does. He is able to make you feel comfortable. He will go out of his way to explain your situation so that you will understand. Friendly. Polite. Professional. I highly recommend Dr. Primack.

Dr. Primack is professional and informative. He understands patients' concerns and is prepared to answer all questions. He is gentle and caring with the eye area.
in Royersford |
Very concerned about your condition. Gentle and caring. Results were very good and am very pleased.
Reading, PA |
I had cataracts removed and, after returning several times to complain about discomfort, was told that it Just takes time to heal. Dr. Primack was arrogant and disregarded my concerns. When my eyes were no better, I went to a new dr. who immediately drained my eyelids that were infected and I was put on a regiment of antibiotics and compresses. I found immediate relief. I am upset that Dr Primack refused to admit that there was any problem.
