Dr. Claudia S Pinilla has the following 1 specialty
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.

Dr. P was rude, insulting and angry when I came to her requesting a 2nd opinion following an eye surgery by another doctor. I told her I liked that doctor very much, but was wondering if maybe something was not quite right. My insurance provider had authorized this visit. After Dr. P reviewed my chart information (making positive comments to herself} she quickly looked at my eye, then said "I was wasting her time, I was 65 yrs old, I couldn't expect perfect vision" and ridiculed my actual vision symptoms that I did not think should be normal for this surgery. Dr. P said twice I was "idiotic" for coming; she was going to "write a note and call my surgeon to tell him I came to her" and said "I was 65 yrs old and all I needed would be glasses". During the short exam, however, I didn't think she looked at the actual surgery site behind the eye without administering eye drops. I was shocked with her unprofessional threatening abusive language and unwarranted insulting attitude with no explanation for her anger other than: my age. I did not challenge or argue with her, I spoke kindly to her, and when leaving the check out desk she turned her back to me without a "goodbye". Well, I had decided half way through this horrific office visit that: "when I get out of this chair and out the door, I will never ever come back."
