Iritis/Uveitis? Go elsewhere!

It was almost three years after my first iritis/uveitis flareup before he remembered to suggest that I get tested for the assortment of possible underlying conditions, and I found out from my next doctor, an iritis/uveitis specialist, that he was waaay overmedicating my flareups. He did both of my cataract surgeries, and another ophthalmologist complimented his work, but I required a YAG Laser procedure after the second one...only about a 30% I had some reason for displeasure. On top of that, he's very cavalier about patients' time. He was 45 minutes late getting back from lunch the day of my last visit, and when I said something, he copped an attitude...told me that he had had business. There's others!
