Being appalled that Dr. Korn was peddling nutritional supplements costing over $300 per month and available only thru him (because he could allegedly vouch for them), I wouldn't go back. How might it affect his care of a patient who said no to this? I was also seen much later than the scheduled appointment time, with no explanation. Given his specialty, I found that odd. His exam was also very superficial for an initial visit, & he wanted me to schedule a 2nd 1 at which he would have refracted my eyes and (as I understood it) & done some measurements to get a baseline for potential eye problems (e.g., mac degen?).
