Patient Comments (2)
Palatka, FL |
Very disappointed in office staff. Diabetic patient scheduled for 12:15 surgery? What kind of patient care is that? No food after midnight the night before means 2 skipped meals. Perhaps if more attention was paid to patient care instead of emphasizing the "no perfume" rule at each interaction would be a better use of limited resources. Rural areas have limited options when it comes to health care. Excellence isn't expected, but common sense would go a long way towards satisfaction.

I went to Dr. Ainsworth with an eye infection which in a very short visit he said was from wearing my contacts too long and sent me on my way. After three days my eye was no better so I went to another local doctor and turns out I have Iritis a very serious eye infection which puts a lot of pressure on the eye and can be very dangerous. He prescribed steroid eye drops every two hours and within 6 hours my eye was much better and less painful. My recommendation - don't go to Dr. Ainsworth.
