Patient Comments (5)
in San Antonio, TX |
I had an appointment on June 13, 2017 for 8:45 AM. I had to wait 45 minutes just for the technician to run preliminary examinations. I was then moved from one room to another. As of 10:00 AM the same day, I still had not been seen by Dr. Held. Absolutely not acceptable! I went to the front desk to reschedule and was quite upset. The office manager magically appeared to tell me I was the next patient to be seen, however, would I be seen in 2 minutes or 2 hours??

Dr. Held is an outstanding ophthalmologist! There is no other doctor like her in San Antonio!! She spends so much time with you and always goes beyond any other doctor I have seen. She is compassion, loyal to her oath, and is a true example of what a doctor should be. The wait time is worth it. So what that she is out of network....Most excellent doctors are!! This allows the government to stay out of medical health care.

Really a very caring doctor. Would strongly recommend and have.

Dr. Held is a great doctor, but the wait times to see her are in my opinion way to long. Just about every appointment I have ever had with her is an hour and a half to two hours to see her. I feel like she doesn't appreciate the value of her patients time.

Dr. Held is not in Network. She makes sure she get paid the full amount and she gives a lousy Medical Coverage Claim form that she does not feel out or sign. It is a nightmare to get the claims back.
