The past 3 visits have been very frustrating. They double book appointments so you wait and wait. Last time patients overflowed the waiting room and were sent to the building’s lobby. There I waited a half hour before checking in! On a recent visit I left after 3:40 without being seen by the dr, my appointment was 1:20. He is a nice guy and competent, but I am fed up with my time being disrespected. The staff seems to have high turnover since there are new faces every few months. If I arrive on time I am respecting the dr why can’t the dr respect my time?

I called Retina Consultants with an emergency on a Saturday afternoon. I am a patient of another doctor in the office. Dr. Margolis was the on call doctor that weekend. I spoke to him on the phone and he told me to come in on Sunday at 2pm. I have to give Dr. Margolis and his assistant, Adrian, the highest compliments possible. They treated me wonderfully. My fears were calmed. I thought I was going blind in one eye. Dr. Margolis explained that I had some issues with blood pooling and that it was treatable. I highly recommend my normal doctor, Dr. Scott Walter, as well as Dr. Margolis and the whole staff at Retina Consultants.

I receive injections in my eye, which souds horrible, but Dr. Margolis has a friendly and calming manner which makes the whole procedure go quickly and with minimal discomfort. He is extremely competent. He talks to patients in a non-condescending manner, explains his procedures thoroughly. I have no hesitation asking questions because he answers them without any hesitation. The long waiting times in the office are because of the various steps in the procedures, not because of inefficiency.

Dr. Margolis is an outstanding doctor and would recommend him highly. He actually cares about his patients and that is something so few doctors do these days. He saw me on two different occasions and each time referred me to a specialist because he knew there was more going on than what I was sent to him for. The second time, he dialated my eyes and then needed me to go to another doctor in Hartford from his office. He actually called the other doctors office to be sure I got there okay.
