I have been seeing Dr. Cain for 20 years for eye exams and various problems. He always does an excellent job at answering my questions and helping me understand my condition.
in Decatur, Alabama |
Worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. I've typed one review and it was entirely too much to finish. But I absolutely hated the way he talked down to my child and made him feel like he was bad because he didn't know his letters when that was part of the reason we were there and had already explained that when we made the appt and the informed me they could still help him. He told my young child to quit be uncooperative when he had done absolutely nothing wrong but not know his letters
