IF YOU'VE GOT LOTS OF TIME ON YOUR HANDS TO WASTE, GO TO HIM. IF NOT, GO TO ANOTHER DOCTOR. MY APPOINTMENT WAS FOR 8:30 A.M. AND AT 10 A.M., I GOT UP AND LEFT THE EXAMINING ROOM.. THERE WERE NO OTHER PATIENTS IN THE WAITING ROOM; HE WAS CHATTING WITH ANOTHER DOCTOR IN THE HALLWAY.

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Oktavec. Yes, there is a long wait when you get there, and I don't appreciate that, but he is a very competent physician and I am happy to put my eye health in his hands. He was recommended to me and now all of my family is in his care.
