Specialties

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Professor of Chemical Engineer

Dr. Westfall has two challenges: (1) he struggles to conjure compassion for his patients and (2) his company, Retina Consultants, is run like a mass production facility. Regarding (1), he is impatient with patient questions and clearly focused on getting out of the room quickly. When given kind, constructive feedback, he was absolutely not open to any reflection around his mannerisms and behavior. Regarding (2), his staff nurses do not introduce themselves by name and simply start putting in drops, doing tests, etc., without any foundational discussion. It was clear that other (older) patients had been bullied into a cattle car mentality.

This man was extremely clinical and cold. He performs laser surgery like a kid on a video game. What he is doing obviously excites him, but I seriously doubt he could tell you the color of his patient's eyes much less their name. If and when he speaks, he is patronizing and makes assumptions.
