Had my annual visit with Dr Held today and as always the staff was amazing and thorough! Felt very safe with all protocols followed and super clean offices. Dr Held explained completely what the status of my eyes are this year. As a cancer survivor she has navigated the affects my eyes have had through treatment and kept my vision and eye health wonderful! I would not trust anyone else with my eye health and she is so well respected that my other doctors are pleased she is taking care of my eyes. Latest in equipment and technology along with a wealth of experience gives her and myself complete information so that treatment is accurate and personalized. Dr Held does not take insurance but my payment is never a surprise as she has all prices listed for services and it is only a few dollars more than my copay would be. My eye health is worth paying for the best! Highly recommend!!!

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.

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.
