Patient Comments (1)
Lakeland, FL |
This ophthalmologist and his nurse have some eye-raising (no pun intended) bedside manners. The guy literally berated me for not giving him a satisfactory answer as to why my previous ophthalmologist did not put me on a treatment regimen for findings related to borderline glaucoma. Also, he works backwards and illogically. Instead of performing a visual field test prior to dilating my pupils, he very conveniently got his nurse to schedule me for a second visit to milk my insurance further.
