Patient Comments (2)
Houston, TX |
Horrible! I was given flippant answers about my blurred vision & redness around my iris, almost cornered into paying for expensive tests because reportedly they would not be covered since they were negative and was told something must be wrong with my brain. An optometrist correctly diagnosed me a week later and all symptoms resolved quickly. Five months after my visit, I posted a lengthly review on google and I was sent a bill dated the next day. Seek compassionate, effective care elsewhere!
I had a really good experience at Dr. Yankelove's office. I am a healthcare professional myself and was super impressed with the professionalism of the whole staff and Dr. Yankelove too. He's super nice and genuinely listened to me as the patient. And from what I could tell, definitely someone patients can trust.
