I took an elderly wheelchair-bound friend to see Dr. Tigani recently. I was told twice by the doctor's staff that I did not need to bring an aide to transfer my friend from her wheelchair to the special chair used to conduct the eye exams. This proved to be totally wrong and he was not able to complete an exam of my friend. This made the value of the visit close to zero in my view. Also, my friend was not seen by the doctor's assistant until 45-50 minutes later than her appointment time.

Excellent, empathetic and knowledge care of our elderly parents for many years. Highly recommend!
