I recently had cataract surgery performed by Dr. Bealka. Dr. Bealka explain the process for the procedure. His staff walked me through all the steps from setting up my pre-op exam, reviewed the insurance requirements and best of all I obtained an excellent result with my vision. Kudos to Dr. Bealka and his staff!
I had an appointment at 10:00am and at 10:40 I had to see how much longer it would take! I waited 45 minutes after my appointment before they finally called me back. Then, I had to wait 4 days for a referral. I told them the Dr I wanted to be referred to and they tried to send me to another Dr I have never heard of! They did not call me or anything. I had to fix all of it myself. I will never go back there.

So I made an eye appointment and failed to appear. 24 hours notice is required, so by the time I realized my son's cardiology appointment was moved to that time and day, it was too late. So I called to reschedule. The clinic manager answered. And apparently had an entire patient profile on me prepared, because she halted reschedule, shamed me for missed appointments going 3 years back, and made sure I knew that a single missed appointment cost them lots of $$$$$MONEY$$$$$.
