He's an expert, Retina Consultants are highest rated in the country. He doesn't exactly have a super nice bedside manner, but he is an excellent doctor. I've gone there with AMD, dry and wet. I noticed others comment on waiting times. Well, there are 3 times you get called. So there are 3 waits and usually it's pretty fast. The exam and the entire thing can take 2 hours and they tell you this. They do tests they have to read before the doctor can see you, and that takes about 15 minute

I caught a fish the other day. I let it go. That bass had more personality, better communication skills, and more apparent concern for my ancient mother's welfare. Doc didn't introduce himself, almost no communication, and had assistant give Mom report of condition. First appt: 3 hrs of which most was waiting. Second appt which was supposed to be 20 minutes: 2 hours wait before being seen. Then another 25 minutes for treatment. To be fair, most of staff was Very nice.
