This doctor is the worst ever. A total jerk! When I asked him routine questions, he would say he's not God or its my fate that my eye went bad. Very unprofessional. If I need God, I would go to church.
in Lawrence, MA |
Dr. Lou was quick to diagnose my torn retina and proceeded to perform a successful procedure to repair the damage. Never had any problems after the repair. He is friendly, personable & easy to talk with.
in Weston, MA |
Dr Lou is outstanding and thorough in every way - from the time he spends with you, his caring and compassionate manner and especially his expertise. Can't imagine finding a better Ophthalmologist anywhere.
