He was in a rush and did not seem to remember on my second visit what he had suggested on my first. I certainly did not feel he was paying attention.

You will sit in the (overcrowded) waiting room for over an hour before getting your eyes dilated, and at least another forty minutes before being called into the exam room. (Plus 10 minutes before the doctor comes in.)BUT. He is an excellent doctor, and will take the time to answer your questions.

We saw Dr. Shakin once for post-op check, he was not the surgeon. He has poor interpersonal skills. Was confusing in his comments, contradicted the surgeon's discharge instructions, did not have the correct operative information, and did nothing to reassure my husband of his status. He was obviously rushed, and disinterested in my husband.
