Used to be good

This practice has become an "eye doctor factory". You're run though the mill. I used to feel cared for now I feel I've been "seen". Will not return.

NO PATIENT EDUCATION ON EYE ISSUE/BAD ATTITUDE

I RECENTLY HAD A DOUBLE CATARACT SURGERY. I SHOULD HAVE SEEN THE SIGNALS ON THE FIRST AND WENT ELSEWHERE FOR THE SECOND (IF I REALLY NEEDED IT). THIS IS A CHURN AND BURN THEM, HIGH VOLUME PRACTICE. VERY CONDESCENDING ABOUT STAFF. MY MISTAKE I SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN A SECOND OPINION. YOU ONLY HAVE ONE SET OF EYES FOR YOUR LIFETIME.. GET SECOND OPINIONS!

Does not offer information

I have seen Dr. Sloan a number of times in the last two years. I have glaucoma and I am seen every six months. Although Dr. SLoan is competent he does not communicate well. You have to be prepared to ask about results of tests, what is the condition of the eye, otherwise he will just walk out of the door. Too bad that his personality is not more patient orientated. Also, the staff at the checkout needs oversight. Last time I went there was no one there at the desk. I waited but then I went to the receptionist. She called a nurse who did not greet me, walked away, came back with a card and said this is your next appointment. Absolutely no communication.
