Patient Comments (1)
Augusta, ME |
Dr. Piazza's skill and kindness defused a frightening experience: I awoke one morning with what appeared to be a bloody eye! I contacted Coastal Eye Care and, although it turned out not to be the emergency I initially feared it to be, the staff was very nice and got me in to see Dr. Piazza quickly. The tech who began my exam was reassuring as well as efficient! When Dr. Piazza saw me, he explained the hemorrhage as well as told me how to prevent a recurrence. He was patient, calming and kind!
