Patient Comments (5)
in Buffalo, NY |
I had cataract surgery last year. Surgery was done on both eyes. It was done properly; however I was very disappointed by Dr. Holmwoods inability to answer my questions after surgery. I had some basic concerns of which were not answered, he was very rude and was even upset that I would even question his work. I would not recommend him, unless you just want the surgery and don't have questions or concerns. I will not be going back for exams.

Talented, experienced, expert professional has taken care of our entire family's eye care needs for many, many years. Friendly staff is professional and courteous.

Too abrupt with his exam 'time' and also with pertinent questions I'd had >>> everything was "fine" until I'd found out otherwise shortly thereafter {which entailed two other exams: one here and one out-of-state}. Also, I'd been charged "twice" by the billing department as to my insurance co-pay, and altho' it was eventually resolved, it did not need to have occurred in the first place.

Very concerned and knowledgeable. Extremely skilled. His office staff are also very caring and communicative.

Misdiagnosed my eye problem. He said nothing was wrong, see you in a year. Went to see retinal specialist who found two small holes and treated them. He also doesn't listen to what you are saying. Never going back
