Patient Comments (1)
in New York, NY |
I did not see Susan Fromer, but this is her practice and she is responsible for the way it is run. If you have any other options, I urge you never to use Fromer eye center. I was misled and misinformed By them, kept waiting 2 hours for my appointment and was dismayed by the lack of knowledge exhibited by the low vision specialist I finally saw. I will never go back. I think they may be a Medicaid/ Medicare mill, insisting on unnecessary procedures to make more money. if you can go elsewhere,
