Specialties

Dr. David F Castillejos-Rios has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Milking the insurance

I made an appointment for a cataract evaluation. I have previously been cleared for cataract surgery, but due to insurance had to change doctors. What happened instead of the appointment I thought I had was a very thorough exam that DID NOT INCLUDE the cataract evaluation. My former doctor did all this in one appointment, but I was told here that I needed 3 MORE appointments to get cleared for the surgery. At no time did they tell me they were not doing the cataract evaluation. I suspect they are milking the insurance. I also agree with the noisy environment criticisms. Needless to say, I will not be going back.
