Not a thorough exam when I thought my retina was detaching. He told me to deal with the flashing lights and haze in my eye. I had an untreated retinal tear as a result of his misdiagnosis and lackadaisical attitude.

Dr. Smith

Posted on July 19th, 2016

At first Dr. Smith seemed abrupt and non-caring... but that all changed. Upon laying in pre-op for cataract surgery, Dr. Smith came in and talked to me about any concerns and dilated my eye. The day after surgery I saw Dr. Smith, and he was okay, but rushed. A week later I was having some complications in my eye that had surgery. At this point, Dr. Smith started to be more caring, and concerned. A few weeks went by, and I developed inflammation in my eye. It was on a weekend and I called the answering service. Within 15 minutes, Dr. Smith called me back - gave me an increase in some RX drops and told me to just 'show up' first thing on Monday morning when the office opened. I was there at 8AM, and he saw me first! I just had my follow-up visit with Dr. Smith (a week later)...all is well and we scheduled my other eye for cataract surgery. Dr. Smith turned out to be a wonderful, caring doctor who 'knows what he is doing' and now, after all this, I have all the faith in the world for him to be my eye doctor. The surgerical staff is wonderful - the everyday staff is rushed, but fine. The supervisor in the accounting office is curt, rude & abrupt - but she doesn't have anything to do with my eye surgery, so I just don't interact with her anymore.

Spent very little time with me. Always seems rushed. Explanations not clear. Assumes you know more about procedures than you do. Too quick to dismiss concerns. Lacks empathy.

Was told I needed cataract surgery on both eyes and would no longer need glasses. After surgery was told still needed glasses because I had a stigmatism and that could be treated with another operation and an additional charge. When asked why it was not done during the cataract surgery I was told "we did not see it then"????? Also was told that the glasses I now needed would cost $XXX.xx and insurance would not pay for it. Found out later that insurance would pay for first glasses after cataract surgery???? ($$$$$). The only thing I accomplished with this was to end up with a different pair of glasses that I had to pay for.
