An excellent passion, for the medical field and his patients.
Jersey City, NJ |
Didn't explain anything during exam. Was taken back and forth between rooms 5+ times without contacts / being able to see anything and no assistance / guidance was offered When I was asked to take out my contacts no one showed me where anything was (solution, sink to wash hands, etc.) Finally nurse pointed me towards bathroom saying there was solution in there. Used the only bottle there which looked like solution but turned out to be hydrogen peroxide. Burnt my eye so badly. Terrible experience
