My sister saw Dr Kolsky for vision loss in one eye. He was very rough and gruff and "couldn't delay his clinic" for questions. Contrary to what he states, he did not complete a neuro-ophthalmology fellowship. Instead, he orders every single known test to man hoping to find something possible. Dr Kolsky orders spinal taps, blood work, mris out the wazoo. He uses a "shotgun approach" he told us. Should be called a nuclear bomb. We got a second opinion and told the diagnosis after a quick exam.

I do not know what office this other person went to. I had the reverse experience. Dr. K and his staff took great care and went through a lot of work on me. They got me as far as possible without having to get outside tests. They followed up with me and have been a pure pleasure every step of the way. I unfortunately had a diagnosis outside of just optical causing the optical issue but continue to return for the optical nerve issue I am having

No Chance. Just got off the phone with a family member who was literally in tears thanks to the treatment at this office. Obviously it is scary to believe that you are having vision loss, and apparently Dr Kolsky has forgotten this (so he is of no use as a physician). Aside from being at the office for 6 hours for a 10 minute examination, he berated her for asking any questions (yes or no only was permitted). I am not the patient, but I am trying to pick up the pieces. So sue me.
