Patient Comments (2)
in New Hope, PA |
Had lightning-like obstruction of vision at 10PM. Called hot line and repeatedly got a heart docs' service. Told to keep trying and I might eventually get to right service. Finally got thru. They contacted Saffron and relayed that he said to come in in the morning when they were open. Assumed it must not be critical. At 4 AM, I woke up blind in my right eye. Went to Will's eye and they confirmed I was permanently blind in my right eye. Thanks a lot, doc. No followup. Don't go to him.
