Patient Comments (1)

First and last visit. Didn't explain what was doing. I didn't get chance to ask my questions about what was bothering me about my eyes. Not offered sunglasses when left, no concern about eyes still dilated and sensitive to light. I actually feel bullied. Never would recommend going to this doctor.
