After 2 months of wait, I had a 5 pm appointment at her WC office on Friday Sept 1st. They charged my credit card $225 upfront fee. I waited until 6:30 in the waiting room before I was admitted and only to be seen by two others who did unrelated eye exams and recorded everything wrong in the computer as I was watching them type. I left at 6:40 still not seen by her. I have not received an email or call explaining this very unprofessional treatment or refund of my fee. Very disappointing.

Dr Silkiss is the best, my eyelids look great, virtually no scarring 4 months later. Her professionalism, expertise, and artistry are unparalleled.
in Rohnert Park, CA |
Dr. Silkiss is very expert. I haven't meet another specialist as skilled and knowledgeable. She was recommended to me years ago by another extraordinary eye doctor. A family member sees her also.
