Patient Comments (2)
Wonderful and caring physician! I had a fantastic outcome from my cataract surgery!
in Cary, NC |
Had to book a month and a half in advance. On the day of the appt I waited an hour in the waiting room before being called back. Had my eyes dialeted and waited another 45 minutes. Nobody showed. I then had to leave due to other commitments. Had a similar experience at this practice with another doctor. I question the ethics of doctors who overbook so excessively. They are merely chasing profits and not providing quality medical care. Avoid Wake Opthamology.
