Is it your eyes that need attention - Waiting Justified

When looking for a specialist; consider your needs at the time. Time in this case is your vision. If you want something good; sometimes you have to wait. By the same token; if you have an emergent situation with your vision that needs evaluated today, not tomorrow or next month; Dr. Bene will see you!Yes sometimes the waits in the office are very long, and there maybe somethings to improve that process. But the next time you have a vision problem that needs checked now not later, and call her office; they will fit you into the schedule.So the next time you are waiting in her office or any other doctor office for a 'routine' visit, please keep in mind that the reason you are waiting is because the doctor cared enough to make sure the patient got the needed attention. Is it worth the wait? I say yes!. I have had some very long waits in her office; but I am also one that was fit into the schedule the same day attention was needed. Some will say that after the long wait their visit was very brief with Dr. Bene.Please keep in mind that Dr. Bene spends time where it is needed. She is going to answer you questions if you have any. She will be straight forward with you about your condition and your options. She will also be honest when she is uncertain of what is happening and is not afraid to say I need someone to shed some more light on this. I have had all these experiences with Dr. Bene.But I know that she is not going to use that treatment when nature can take its course and the resulting scarring is less; and when I am frustrated about the issues at hand; she takes time to explain how everything works so I understand what is going on.
