Patient Comments (1)
Lakewood, NJ |
I do not recommend this doctor for anything other then general eye exams. Had to go back repeatedly for an eye infection which was instead treated for inflammation and glaucoma with numerous costly follow ups. The staff billed us for 4 visits which was paid on time. There apparently was a 5th visit that wasn't on the bill and eventually sent to collection. Very rude staff who would interrupt and not provide clear information. This is the worst doctors office and staff I ever encountered.
