I am shocked. Reference "real reviews" on zocdoc. The patient's desire to have a dilated exam is one of the criteria I use to determine whether to perform one. Based on my examination of her child, and 35 years experience as a board-certified, fellowship trained ophthalmologist, I use my own judgment. Nothing abnormal was noted on dilated exam so, in fact, her daughter did not need it. This mom, concerned about her "wasted time", took the time to post this same review on several websites. Hmmm.
