Terrible facility

Terrible wait times! How can you keep school age children 6 hours for a 20 minute visit with the dr. My son has had to miss two school days because appointments at this office. Never again! I would not recommend this place at all!

my daughter was better off w/ blocked tear ducts

Dr. Siegel performed two tear duct surgeries on my daughter before she was 2yrs old. Since then her tear ducts are open but now she is cross eyed after the second surgery. I would definitely recommend that everyone keep your child away from this man. Since then i have switched her to loma linda in hopes a real professional can correct what he has done. He denied he caused her eyes to cross but my daughter was NOT born this way and her primary doctor can vouch for her.

One Star

What a horrible office. I have been trying to get my daughter in so her lazy eye could be fixed. First, I left numerous messages to make an appointment and no one called me back. I had to go down to the office to make an appointment 3 times. Each appointment set, my daughter didn't see the doctor because the first time, insurance supposedly expired, called the insurance company and they indicated my insurance was in place but the receptionist said we lost our appointment and had to reschedule. Second appointment, didn't see my daughter because they were overbooked and the wait would be about 4 hours. so I rescheduled. Third appointment was schedule at 8 am but I got a call indicating that my appointment was changed to 7 am. OK, go down there and the office doesn't open until 8 am REALLY! SO I waited, at check in I realized I can't find my insurance card. Now, my daughter can't be seen again. I called the insurance company, this time in front of the receptionist, and they said they will fax over a copy of the card and would like to speak to the receptionist to give clearance. The receptionist did not want to talk to the insurance company and said my daughter will not be seen period. He was so unprofessional and so rude. I have been trying to get this doctor to see my daughter for 10 months and for some reason it's not happening. I cannot believe that the doctor would keep such an unprofessional staff. Tried to post a negative on BBB but this Incorporation is not accredited by the Better Business Bureau. Good thing, because there would be a lot of complaints and fines. I do not recommend this doctor, even though he didn't see my daughter, just because of the unorganized, unprofessional and rude staff.

Terrible Experience at Children's Eye Institute

Horrible place. Staff is rude and inefficient. Complaints about how ere were treated were ignored. An exam and dilation takes 2.5 hours anywhere else, here it takes more than 4 hours. Everything about this practice says that they do not respect their patients.

Dr Siegel office refused medical care. The office staff and manager Jennifer was horrible. My daughter needs constant checkups. I reporting this office. Reading the other reviews it seems Dr. Siegel is to blame for allowing the bad behavior of his staff. This office doesn't put the children best interest first. I will never allow my child to be seen by this office again. I recommend to chose another doctor.

Unthinkable front office behavior. When you have children sick and are under stress because your child could loose their sight and experience rude treatment is unacceptable.
