Highly very disappointed from office staff(rude waiting 2.hrs every appointment. Dr Dann was the rudest dr I have been to . She was supposed to surgery on eyes, after her comment that she uncomfortable because I was nervers. Well I think everyone who has to have surgery on eyes(cataract)would be nervous to. Actually made appointment with another Dr to do surgery. What a difference, iwouldn't recommend her to my worst enemy. If anybody has a bedside manor is not her. Also made office staff aware who rude they were to and there waiting is not acceptable.
So this review is a few years old, but I thought I would share my experience. First off, in defense of the doctor, this office schedules multiple appointments for the same timeblock, it's not one provider's doing, so regardless of who you see, be ready to wait. I saw Dr. Dann because my doctor, Dr. Frangieh wasn't in the office that day... and honestly she's the reason I don't go there anymore. I went in for an exam. Back then, I was a minor and my mother was with me. We explained that I didn't want glasses, I wanted contact lenses. Let me preface this by saying that my nose is slightly crooked and the bone is off in just the right place that makes glasses uncomfortable, which is why I wear them so sparingly. She didn't ask why I didn't want glasses, didn't even entertain the thought that there might be a legitimate issue and simply replied to us saying, "Well if he's too immature for glasses, I'm not going to give him a prescription for contact lenses." Um... excuse me? Who the heck is this woman to make such an assumption? Needless to say, she refused to give us the prescription I needed and I had to wait weeks until I could get an appointment with another doctor to get it my first set of lenses. The office staff continuously apologized for that, but you know what? The damage is done. I will not be back.
I referred to Dr. Dann by another doctor that I was seeing in the Norwood Guild Building (admitting never has he seen Dr. Dann). I was looking for something that required little travel on my behalf because of how the weather had been this winter. I was one of the first patients in the office and TWO HOURS later I was leaving. This was for an eye exam! The technicians were very nice, the office manager (I think that's who she was) was very fake and on her phone, and the doctor showed up an hour after I did. How in any good business does that equal success? There were others complaining about how she is "ALWAYS LATE" as well. It was a frustrating experience, one that I personally will not do again, and I'm happy it's better weather so I can travel to an eye doctor that respect me and my schedule as well. Good luck!
I switched doctors after seeing Dr. Dann for many years. She was extremely rude to me on my last visit, two-and-a-half years ago. Her diagnosis was also wrong. When I asked why sight in one eye had worsened she said it was probably diabetes. I am not, nor have I ever been, diabetic. This was confirmed afterward by my primary physician. Turns out the problem was the beginnings of a cataract. I recently had successful surgery by another doctor to correct it. Only positive thing I can say about Dr. Dann is that it is easy to get an appointment with her. Her office staff leaves frequent phone messages that I need to set one up.
