Patient Comments (2)
West Haven, CT |
Dr. C. was recommended to me with a warning that he runs late with appts and is chatty. That was a mild assessment. He was rude, did not make eye contact with me, did not answer any questions and ultimately prescribed the wrong RX, shape and size of contacts I needed. He literally huffed when I asked simple questions and rushed me out of the room. Poor bedside manner toward a new patient. Would not recommend for basic eye health exams or vision enhancement.
