Dr. Fogel is by far the most compassionate physician I have ever had an encounter with. I am sure to leave with a smile on my face after each visit with her and her staff.

If you don't mind 65 minute wait, snarly staff and filthy rest room, she's your gal. Patronizes her senior clientele. Staff acknowledges wait time of 90 minutes is normal.

I apologize for the unsatisfactory experience you had at our practice recently! Our appointments do take at least 90 minutes. Dr. Fogel insists on providing the highest-quality care so appointments are comprehensive. She takes the time to thoroughly explain all medical/surgical options and to answer every question each patient and their families have. Preserving vision is our practice's mission. I welcome your call if you'd like to discuss further. Mary Pat Whaley, Manager (919) 787-8555.
