Patient Comments (1)
Buffalo, NY |
Lincoff was an hour late, led me to a room and disappeared for another hour. She returned without comment, strangely talked for nearly 20 minutes about her own medical problems, allowed a colleague to walk in and sit down during my consultation and indicated she did not read my opthamologist's reports, provided weeks prior. She also dangerously misread my MRI. WNY medical care at its worst. Seek care outside the area for neuro-opthamology issues.
