Dr. Zeigen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Zeigen "I have been serving the medical and surgical eye care needs of Bucks County, PA since March 19th, 1990! Soon thereafter, I renamed my office Richboro Eye Care to reflect where I live and work. My home is less than 2 miles from my office. This means that if you need me, I am there for you! I have a simple philosophy: offer modern eye care on a personal basis. Your examination is done without the use of technicians, only me! Most exams start on time, a rarity in our society of overloaded medical offices. However, because emergencies do occur, as does the occasional need to spend more time with a patient than expected (I know you love to chat and learn more about your eyes), there may be longer than desired delays in the office. For this I apologize in advance."

Very caring doctor. When I had a problem with eye pressure after cataract surgery, Dr Zeigen met me at his office in the middle of the night to take care of the situation. Where would you find another Dr. willing to go out of his way for a patient.

Dr. Zeigen always remembers to ask me about my diabetes and is quick to explain what he is doing and why he is doing it regarding my eye treatments. He also has a fine tuned sense of humor as well.
