Patient Comments (1)
in Virginia Beach, VA |
My elderly mother received a DMV license renewal form requiring her eye doctor's (Dr. Platt) signature certifying her vision was adequate to meet requirements for driving. She was told there would be a $20 fee to sign the DMV document. She explained that she is a widow on social security and was told she could go to DMV and take the eye test to avoid the fee. He had just examined her eyes a few months ago. Great customer service and compassion. (NOT)
