Absolutely horrible experience. Waited 2 1/2 hours before Dr. waltzed in. I had my purse in hand on the verge of walking out. Dr. states he likes to take his time. He is arrogant. Did procedure in his office which was most painful experience of my life. Hysterical by the time I left appt. over 3 hours later. Surgery went well. Never got follow up exam; waiting room full, atrium full, standing room only; already over 1/2 wait. Never again.
I have known Dr Aiello for a long time, he is a very experienced and expert ophthalmologist. He is very knowledgeable and informed about his specialty. He is a very busy surgeon no doubt. Whenever I see him, in spite of being busy, he takes out a few minutes to talk to me. I feel honored to know him.
I was in his office for over 3 hours for 5 - 10 min of his time. He was rude, non-caring, accused me of not doing anything for myself without even asking me one question about what i had been doing and wouldn't listen when i tried to tell him anything, just kept on going like i was not even talking. When he was walking out of the room he said, oh yeah, any questions? i said yes, am i going to go blind? he said, you may, you may not, how do i know, i can't tell the future. Then I said, I think i might have Sjogrens Syndrome and he said, so what, what difference does that make! I left there feeling upset that my insurance company would ever refer me to someone of this caliber.
I don't need my hand to be held or to be coddled when I visit a doctor, but I do believe that I should receive some respect. I took my grandmother here because her eyelids are drooping and it is causing her irritation. We waited for over two hours to see Dr. Aiello, which is a bit lengthy, but not the worst thing in the world IF the doc is doing a thorough job. We didn't get that in the least. Dr. Aiello popped in for 5 minutes or less, banged my grandmother's head around while rapidly spilling out information to the nurse and then talked to my grandmother and me in the most condescending way. He explained that she was just old and would need her lower lid pulled back. When we asked about the upper lid (which is also giving her problems), he said we'd need to make a separate appointment for that. He also didn't give a good answer when we asked if the procedure would create any extra issues since my grandmother has ALS. He just said that she is old and she'd be fine. Then he left. Such a disrespectful man, not thorough, not helpful and the wait time is terrible. My impression was that the doc just wants the money for his procedures and does not care for his patients. You can find plenty of other skilled ophthalmologists who care about you. This one isn't worth your time.
