Patient Comments (1)
in Rensselaer, NY |
Dr. Sax may be medically competent, but you would never know it. He keeps you waiting an inordinate amount of time, then hustles in with his tablet computer, never greeting you or looking at your eyes (though he may have looked at test results before entering), and taps away seeking a diagnosis. Then abruptly leaves. When I had a vision crisis in 2013, his semiannual checkups lost track of me and were not responsive until another ophthamologist called for me. I left his care in 2016.
