Patient Comments (1)
in Sacramento, CA |
I waited four months to see Dr. Joseph R. Martel, the Ophthalmologist. He was running 1 hour behind by 10:30am and his assistant took me back and had me read two lines on the eye chart. Then Dr. Joseph R. Martel came in and looked at the findings and took my glasses into the other room to check the power of the lenses. He came back and said I was fine - no adjustment - and no need to complete the remainder of the exam. No dilation, no lens comparisons, no glaucoma check. Simply Appalling!
