Patient Comments (1)
He aired on the side of safety and waiting when i was loosing my vision in my eye. He told me it would get worse before better. Instead of giving me the prescribed meds..i ended up in the er and hospitalized for three days because he was not proactive. He at least called me back after dc at which i told him i did not agree with his course of action and was going elsewhere.
