Patient Comments (3)
Chicago, IL |
The first 3 times I had to wait over an hr to be seen. There were no apologies for the wait, not even an acknowledgement. The 4th time I came in for a 9 am appt, I just left at 9:45 because the doctor hasn't even come in for the day and there were 2 other pts also waiting to be seen. If he was a genius or even courteous, maybe it would have been worth the wait. However, he is rude and abrupt and with all the choices out there why choose him? They also grossly overcharge for glasses and contacts
Not recommended to go to this practice. I spent 2 hrs and 10 minutes for an appointment. Worst Doctor office I've been too. This is the first time I've had a super long wait. I initially waited for 45 minutes to be brought in the room.the technician did the initial tests.Then they put the drop for my eyes.They let me wait in the waiting room for 45 minutes.Then I was brought in the exam room and waited for another 30 minutes. Dr finally sees me for just 10 minutes.
