Patient Comments (3)

Inefficient. Made mistakes in my diagnosis. It was very difficult to contact her and she did not return my calls on time. Will never see her again. A total nightmare.

I love this doctor. I have had three eye issues this year, and she always does such a thorough job - and works me in if I have an emergency. She is polite, approachable, friendly and so detailed. I wish all doctors were like Dr. Dweck.

I've had two appointments so far with Dr. Dweck and she makes going to the doctor painless and stress free. She's easy to talk to, patient, thorough, and I trust her judgement--all things that my previous eye doctor lacked. I've never had to wait more than 10 minutes in the waiting room to see her...more
