I have lived in Sarasota for 20 yrs and I have never meet such a pompous doctor. he was unwilling to answer many questions I had, and it occurred to me he was rushing through. It was our first appt. but I won't be going back.

I had a terrible experience with Dr. Wahl. My first and only visit he yelled at me, rushed through the exam and gave me a wrong prescription. When I had glasses made elsewhere, they didn't work. So I paid another doctor to reexamine me to check Wahl's prescription. Wjith this changed prescription, I had to have my glasses redone. Dr. Wahl is a rude and angry man. I later learned from a friend that he yelled at her on her first visit and she never went back either.
