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.

Great care, amazing doctor!

His level of care and concern for me and my problems is the best I have ever seen from any doctor! His office was able to accommodate my emergency on the same day I called. I'd say if you want an actual friendly doctor who isn't in a rush to see another patient and actually treat you like a person, then go see Dr. Sygiel.

One Star

There were three things that I did not particularly like about the service provided in this office. His assistant/technician, Gigi (I believe that was her name) is not at all personable and in fact, argued with me regarding what I was describing were my eye issues I was experiencing at that time. Second, she was the one who also went through the different lenses and wrote out the prescription for my eyeglasses. Dr. Sygiel did not even doublecheck whether the prescription was even correct and in fact, it wasn't. After my eyeglasses came in and I could not see properly, they scheduled another appt. to get the prescription adjusted. When I arrived for my appt., Gigi was again the one who saw me - did not see Dr. Sygiel at all, and she "fixed" my prescription. For convenience, I went to their eyeglasses dept and ordered my eyeglasses from them. That was the third issue I had. When I asked about blended bifocals, she mentioned that "they don't make them anymore" and that the progressive lenses are what replaced those types of lenses. Not having worn bifocals for years, I wasn't sure and believed her. I found that many of my colleagues at work indeed have new blended bifocals with no problem! I am still unable to use my eyeglasses that I paid a huge cost for and resorted to plain cheap reading glasses instead. Needless to say, I will NOT be returning to this office and will NOT and would not recommend this office to anyone.

Long, long wait.. Over an hour

I got a call asking me if I could come in for an earlier appointment as they had had cancellations. I agreed, but when I got there the waiting room was absolutely packed with people. I waited 45 minutes to be called back to a room and then another 35 minutes for the doctor to come in. He spent all of 5 minutes with me . I was diagnosed with a benign self limiting condition that should clear up on its own within a few days, however he still wanted me to make another appointment to see him in two weeks. To wait another hour and a half to see him for 5 minutes??? I think not. I would not go back here.

caused corneal abraision

While performing laser removal of scar tissue he said resulted from the cataract surgery he had performed, Dr. Sygiel caused a corneal abrasion. I could feel it tearing during the procedure but he wouldn't stop. Took 3 trips to a corneal specialist to fix it and weeks for the pain to stop. Fine for routine eye exam but would not go back for anything else.

He takes care of our whole family now

We moved to Michigan a number of years ago and through friends found Dr. Sygiel. He has taken care of my father's cataracts very successfully, my husband's lasik surgery (20/20), and all 3 of my children's eye needs, as well as mine. I wouldn't trust anybody else with our vision.
