Patient Comments (1)
in New York, NY |
I had a horrible experience with this office! Rude, unprofessional and scamming for money! They make you sign a waiver for a refraction test that is not covered by insurance and that you are responsible to pay for out of pocket, they give this to patients even if it?s not needed to get the cash! Save yourself the time and money and go see an honest opthalmologist!
