I've been struggling with strabismus for 3 years now. I've tried glasses and exercises for years with not much success. I also was apart of the one of the higher (most severe) cases. (The highest is a 10, which means the eye stays completely to the side and it cannot move in. I, thankfully had an 8. That means I had my eye stuck in an outward position when looking far away, but not as much when looking close.) A common affect of the strabismus is double vision. I struggled with double vision badly, making it where when I looked at someone, I would literally see two of them. We visited her Monday and did the surgery that Wednesday (yes the one 2 days away!!) I am now 2 weeks out post-op and I have never felt better. I can resume to my full activities and I can see with normal, singular vision.
The office is so cluttered with toys and a collection of dolls that it is dirty and just creepy. From the waiting area, to the reception area to the two exam rooms, it is just filled with toys and Barbies and dolls and old desks even. This might be a good time to mention also that I thought we were going to see a male doctor, but the person who saw my child goes by the name of Megyn not Franklin. The whole experience was just not good and well, weird. I'd rather drive farther to see another doctor than to repeat that experience.
We've gone to Dr. Busse for five-plus years. Today, at our annual checkup and not before, we were told Dr. Busse wouldn't accept our insurance because we purchased it on the exchange. Denying children care is not an appropriate, or even humane, tactic for making a political statement especially when that child - his patient - has no input into the decision. What other bills passed by Congress might he disagree with that will give him the right to deny care and discontinue treatment? It's a slippery slope when businesses let political beliefs dictate business protocols - something I think Dr. Busse would be especially sensitive to. What's ironic is before the Affordable Health Care Act was passed my son couldn't get coverage because it was classified as a pre-existing condition. This is a doctor who cares more about making asinine political statements than providing care to children. Parents should consider if this is the kind of person they want treating their child.
