Was recommended I see this Doctor after I had a brain injury from car accident and experienced many neurological symptoms with my eyes that puzzled a neurologist and my own eye doctor. Tons of testing done, no answers as to why I have an enlarged pupil and vision problems after brain injury. Doctor stated they had no comment on the neurological symptoms experienced/affect my vision and eyes despite that being the very reason for my visit. Generic bedside manner. Came for help, left disappointed.

Been a patient for many years. I like the doctor not so much the staff. I'm so glad Rosemary, the lasik coordinator is no longer here. I had a negative experience with her. ( she was nasty to me on the phone on numberous occasions) I have friends that know her and been told she's very tempermental and bipolor! Heard she works at BMW of Watertown. Some one get that woman her meds and a good therapist! She's crazy like her older sister Barbara! ( who I worked with many years ago)
