Patient Comments (1)
Canton, OH |
If your eye doctor refers you to this....you need to find another eye doctor. Lehrer doesn’t know the first thing about patient care. The person attached to the eyes is just another account in his accounts payable ledger. I waited a total of 2 1/2 hours, in a dimly lit waiting room, without my contacts. That is a horrible experience that Lehrer should understand. Take a machine, which can’t have feelings because it’s just a machine, add in a monster, and you’ve got “Dr. Lehrer”.
