Dr. Karen W Walcott has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
will not return

Office called to schedule appointment and tests "because insurance will pay for it now," not that appointment was needed, even though it was. Performed test, failed to repeat because of artifact, so results were incomplete, but still charged full amount, and said come back in a year. Spoke to another professional who could not believe they did not repeat test. She was rude and arrogant and will not return. Would rather have seen her partner who performed the surgery but they will not allow you to see him, so keep that in mind if he does your surgery.
