I brought my daughter, now college age, for a retina check. She had always been see through the neonatologist opthomologist that did surgey on her eyes as a baby to restore her vision. Dr Neuwirth was highly recommended. Uggh. Dreadful. 2 plus hour wait after driving an hour and a half. He was abrupt, rude, and downright unfriendly. Very sarcastic. The young man who took the photos of her retinas was wonderful. The office didn't accept our insurance after they said they did on the phone. The appointment cost me almost $800. HORRIBLE!! Beware.
I don't have a lot of experience with eye issues, however after my experience with this doctor and staff, I hope I never do. I waited exactly two hours after I had eye drops put in my eyes for a follow-up visit. No explanation, no apology, just total disregard for what another human may be going through. The woman who usually sits at the reception desk is discourteous and rude as though you are imposing on her by just standing at the window waiting for her to acknowledge you. The rest of the staff have cordial, although their overall appearance is sloppy. My advice is to find someone else with more time and concern for you and not just himself.
I have been seeing Dr Neuwirth for over 30 years. He has never been anything but compassionate, understanding and knowledgeable. Yes you have to wait in the waiting room for awhile he he does spend alot of time with his patients. Our eyes are precious and I would never ever think about having another Dr look at my eyes.
