Patient Comments (1)
Boise, ID |
Made an appt. with Dr. Fethke for a serious eye issue that may eventually require surgery. No one bothered to tell me that she no longer does surgery which was my entire reason for being there. The exam I received I could have gotten from any optometrist. The assistants at this office do half the exam. Everyone here is personable and friendly. But a lot of patients are seen at the same time and I wonder how individualized the care is. Not sure if I'd return for more than glasses.
