Patient Comments (1)
San Jose, CA |
I wish I could rate her 0 stars. She's terrible, do not go to her. She has no concern for you or your eye problems. She's just after your money. I scheduled a routine eye exam with her and during the appointment she asked if I had any problems. I mentioned that my eyes are dry and I've been having headaches. Now suddenly I'm billed $500 for a "diagnosis" of dry eyes and headache and not a routine eye exam. I wasn't given any kind of prescription, follow up, or treatment for the "diagnosis".
