I had been having eye problems for a couple months - thought it was allergies. I went to another office in town and was prescribed steroids. My GP's office prescribed other eye drops for allergies. When I called my (former) eye doctor - he couldn't see me for 6 weeks. Dr. Skilling had a cancellation. He was wonderful!!! Professional, efficient, informative, kind AND the right diagnosis - blepharitis. And all I need to do is wash the lids with baby shampoo. Thank you - Pain is gone and my eyes look so much better. I truly am grateful
I was not made to feel welcome or valued as a patient. Exam by Skilling was cursory after a l-o-n-g wait and being shuttled around a huge, expensive building. It shouldn't take 2-1/2 hours and $200 for an exam that was much less thorough than I've had elsewhere. I won't be returning to Eye Associates of Tallahassee.
