Wow I wasted a ton of money and time with this doctor who does not actually specialize in the field she advertises, thus putting tons of steroids in my eyes to ruin them. She bounced me back and forth to her retina specialist friend, when this doctor should have sufficed for my retina needs, thus stealing thousands of dollars from me with subpar care at the best. I would call the ethics board before I would ever see her again.

Wait time almost 4 hours! Lacks bedside manners. Doesn't care about patient well-being. I would not recommend!
