Wait forever. 3 hours waiting 10 minutes to be seen. Over booking patients. Waiting room too enclosed.

Wonderful experience so far...my daughter was having eye problems and the doctor had things figured out in an hour...I plan on seeing Dr Senft also..

Outstanding and exceptional care. I highly recommend anyone in need of eye care/treatment, to see Dr.Susan Senft. She came highly recommended by the Community Hospital; where I was diagnosed with a corneal abrasion, and completely blind in my left eye after my daughter's fingernail sliced it open. Island eye care got me in first thing Monday morning and had me fixed up by Wednesday. If it wasn't for her knowledge and expertise I might have lost my sight. Thank you.

DO NOT waste your time with this provider. Wait time to see Dr. can be greater than 2 1/2 hours, always trying to up-sell to make as much money as possible, does not provide itemized bills, billing inquiries not addressed and no return phone calls, Dr. does not adequately explain costs, details on procedures, consistently minimizes patient concerns and questions. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PROVIDER!!

Professional and very thorough in explaining my situation, in an easily understandable manner. She fit me into her already full schedule, which I greatly appreciated. Basis for low score on office environment due to small cramped waiting rooms. Using unsanitary public key to access restroom was oft putting. Office decor (colors, old silk flowers, lighting, Formica) is out dated and gives impression professional staff/equipment hasn't kept up to date either. Invest in interior designer.

While in Kona, my husband experienced a detached retina. Dr. Senft was amazing, she came into the office after hours, she explained every detail of the examination and answered all of our questions, she immediately put my husbands mind at ease. Before we left her office she had us booked with a retina specialist. I believe if it was not for Dr. Senfts care and dedication to her profession my husband would have lost his eye. We highly recommend Dr. Senft!
