First. The wait time was nearly 2 hours. You can imagine that this is hard with a toddler, showing up 15min before our appointment as they directed and waiting for 2 hours while the Dr went MIA.

He should not get specialize himself in Kids Ophthalmology. He does not even know how to talk to kids. Such a rude doctor, I have ever seen. Does not even talk properly and never tells things clearly. He has a BIG attitude problem. I will not recommend this doctor to anyone.
