Worst Dr. EVER! She has horrible bedside manner and is definitely NOT good with children. My 4yr old is now terrified of eye doctors.....The front desk lady was rude and so was the assistant. I walked out feeling very upset that I allowed such dramatic experience to happen to my child. She should maybe rethink being a pediatric anything bc she sucks with kids.
Unable to communicate with the doctor. The phone number to her office is an answering service that only schedules appointments, their billing is done by Marcy who is extremely rude & the administrator who is the one in charge is "Maria" however, you can only email her and she will never respond. Office staff is extremely rude.
I was referred to this doctor by my son's pediatrician after he glued his eyelid shut. While I held my son in my lap, she covered the glued eye, and watched how his good eye moved/focused. She then said that she was going to cover the other eye. Instead, without warning, she leaned in and started trying to pull the glued eye open. My 2 year old was screaming and thrashing. Her response was to tersely bark at me to keep him still. She gave up after a few minutes and told me that I needed to see her partner. She never told me her partner's name, and when I asked where he was located, she said she didn't know where he would be the following day. I later found out that he operates out of 3 different offices, but she wouldn't even give me a ballpark of where any of the offices were located. In fact, I only found out about the 3 locations because I looked it up on my own later. I still don't know what she wanted me to see her partner for. She never communicated any part of a treatment plan for my son with me. She simply told me to expect a call from the other practice, and not to let my son eat or drink before his appointment. To me, that seems to be anesthesia instructions, but that's based on my own experiences, and conjecture from the doctor I saw for a second opinion. While I was still trying to figure out what was going on, she looked past me, to her tech and told her to move me to the waiting room so they could get someone else into the exam room. It's hard to convey tone online, but I felt dismissed, and that she saw my son not as a frightened child in need of medical care, but rather as an inconvenient source of income.
