I was sent to Dr. Eichler at the request of another eye doctor. I was nervous since I had read a prior poor review. Staff was friendly, I did not have to wait too long. Dr. Eichler was very nice and put me at ease. He did speak with a scribe but he explained that he would relay my exam findings to her and then go over everything with me - which he did. He explained it all and in understandable language!. I had lots of questions and he was very patient, even had a sense of humor. I will definitely be going back.
I had a very poor experience with Dr. Joel Eichler. Not only will I never go again but I will tell people I know to stay away. He had an assistant in the office with him during my treatment. Throughout the examination he spoke to her and not to me. He did an exam and never told me his findings. Perhaps he wrote it in a report, but he did not share this information relating to my eye health with me. He had a very poor patient/physician relationship.
