Patient Comments (2)
in Lancaster, PA |
I've been very satisfied with Dr. Calkins. He is patient and very thorough when conducting eye exams. His office does not sell eyeglasses, but that is not an issue for me.
Lancaster, PA |
I recently moved to PA. I called this office and inquired about insurance that is accepted. I was told that it was and made an appointment. I later received a statement from my insurance and then a bill from the doctor. It turns out that they are not part of my insurance. I have since fled an appeal with the insurance. I called and spoke to someone at this office. The employee was rude and nasty to me. I would be careful about dealing with this office.
