Kirkland, WA |
Mr. Gilbert is unprofessional, rude, condescending, demeaning and has no interest in his patients are experiences. He boasts about how he can "cure" your eye problems and how a simple surgery could leave you never having cataracts or needing glasses again in only 7 minutes vs. cost / options available to you (his miracles are $3k AN EYE). He quotes statistics that change if you question them.
