Patient Comments (2)
Cincinnati, OH |
I would NEVER recommend Dr. Reid. After ignoring my questions/concerns about my condition, the problem persisted and I went to get a 2nd opinion. It turned out the prescription that Dr. Reid gave me was incorrect and was causing high eye pressure which could have led to permanent damage. I had a feeling something was wrong, but when I addressed it with Dr. Reid & his assistant, I was told that they had "years of experience in eye care" and brushed me off. Thank god I went and got a 2nd opinion!
Everyone was extremely friendly except the short haired red head with glasses. She was very unpleasant to deal with and she's dr Reid's primary assistant. She constantly complains about the computers and huffs and puffs often u set her breathe.
