I thought Dr. Diesenhouse had a crummy bedside manner, he seemed like he was only concerned abut getting his copay.he seemed very rushed and to be perfectly honest he did not seemed to be concerned about assisting me with my eye problems. I felt that he was there to just pick up my copay hurry off to the next appointment. I definitely would not recommend this Dr. to anyone who needs a good eye doctor. STAY AWAY

My wife and I both made appointments for an annual eye exam. We moved in from out of state and used this website to select our opthamologist; and we settled on Dr. D. We are glad we did! He and his team were outstanding. The entire process (from appointment setting, to exam time and quality and detail of eye care to selecting our new frames lenses) was excellent. We hope this candid review helps.

Dr. Diesenhouse restored my vision to 20/20, both eyes. The surgeries were done two weeks apart, within the last month (April/May, 2016). My right eye was a '4, or mature cataract; it was considered a complex surgery. I cannot believe how well I see now; it is like being born again. I was never 20/20 in either eye. Dr. 'D' and his staff were courteous, professional, flexible, and competent. Dr. 'D' took me from darkness to light. Don't be afraid, and don't stay in the dark.

Dr. D. is considerate, professional and responsive. He makes himself available in emergency situations and has top grade professional connections when another specialist is required. He listens well, spends time with his patients and seems to genuinely care for our well-being. His office staff is friendly, capable and professional.

My total appointment was almost 3 hours; with only 5-10 minutes with Dr. D. I was not told in advance that my eyes would be dilated, which I felt was a big error on the part of his staff..
