Seems like a really nice guy. Turned out my wife did not have a hole in her eye! Ryan was very professional, they are really busy there. Took 3 hours, but the good news was no surgery. The bad news was the cost. I think I would go back.

Dr Rich has always been very pleasant and professional. I have had eye surgery that he performed and it went well. The followup has been excellent. A complication arose over a year later and he has effectively treated the problem. I would highly recommend him. The staff has been helpful and pleasant to work with.

Good technician? Yes. Good communicator? NO. Doesn't like to answer questions. And then decided to dismiss me, no reason. This also blocks me from seeing ANY dr. at Retina Consultants. Ok. Eileen , ugh. Don't try to reason w/her. Attitude problem much? The doctors are protected by Eileen. They mistreat u if you speak up. SPEAK UP anyway. Otherwise, they just continue with this.. btw, turnover of personnel? HIGH. Word on the street? RC are the only game in town, and ACT like it
