The doctor I saw today continually interupted me as I tried to explain the problems I had with my eyes. She insisted that she knew exactly what my complaint was and proceeded to tell me and she was NOT correct. It was very frustrating. This was my 4th appointment since my surgery in 2009 and at each appointment, I told the staff and doctor about the vision problems I had and they all told me that I had to speak to Dr. LaHaye about it and that he would call me. Needless to say he never did. All this today after waiting 2 hours this morning to see one of the doctors made it more disappointing. At least this time I fussed enough that they actually checked my eyes and now Im scheduled for followup surgery.
