great doctor just over books patients and wait times are ridiculous
Patient | May 1, 2016

Waiting time is TERRIBLE and has been for the last 20-30 years. I've been an Eye Clinic patient.
Patient | April 7, 2016

I did wonder after I left the office if I should be treating my irritated eye with anything between now and an upcoming surgery.
Patient | March 7, 2016

During my visit, an out-patient procedure was recommended. I live alone and when I asked for more info if fasting is needed prior to procedure, do I need to arrange driver to pick up, etc. I was handed a business card of a scheduler who would call me to give these details. I was very frustrated not getting such info from health providers there for this procedure during my visit. Scheduler did not call for 3 days so I called and got an appt. She said details of my procedure will be in the mail as she is not authorized to discuss health issues.
