Patient Comments (4)
in Elmont, NY |
I am very disappointed in how he runs his office. No one seems happy to be there. The staff appears afraid to make a mistake. He nit picks the bills. He claimed I owed him $5 from 2O14. I have double insurance and it's unlikely that it was filed correctly. I left after waiting for 30 minutes.

The best way to say this is know it all. He speaks disrespectfully to staff and patients alike. Basically he acts as if it is his way or the highway -- so prospective patients -- stay on the highway and find yourself a humble doctor to care for your important eye sight.

Dr. Jindra is world renowned but he does not allow patients in the 21st century any input in their care. It is understood by many that this opthamologist is obsessed with administering every test available. He was good years ago but now can't be bothered with cataracts and refers to another. He is in Stewart Manor but Manhatten Eye and Ear have more patient medical professionals. Both eyes done same month without a major project of it. The inconvenience is overall well worth it.
