Patient Comments (1)
Edenton, NC |
Made an appoint for routine exam with MD. I was handed off to a lady who said she was a certified technician, took my history, put drops in my eyes and wanted to perform a microscopic exam. I explained several times that I made an appoint to see the MD and didn't want examined by a technician. She seemed perturbed & left the room. The MD came in, made no attempt to get to know me. When he saw I was there for a routine exam he muttered This is the way we do it - I don't care and dismissed me.
