Dr. Louis E Verstringhe III has the following 1 specialty
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.

Not only is Dr Verstringhe an excellent surgeon, his whole attitude concerning patient care is outstanding. By this I mean that if he does surgery on your eye, he wants to be the one to do the follow-up visits. Also, he will stay with the patient the time he/she needs to answer all questions. Highly recommended.
Dr Verstringhe is the most outstanding opthamologist I have ever had in the 50+ yrs I have been going to one. He did 2 cataract surgeries for me; I didn't meet him until right before the surgery but from that first moment I knew that he was someone special. My sense was correct. I will truly miss him and I believe his leaving his current practice will be a true loss to the practice but a real gain in his new practice. I am so grateful to him for his skill and especially his excellent patient manner which is superb.
This review is consistent w/ other poor review. Dr. Verstringhe bristles and becomes rude when asked questions. He does not communicate well with patients. He refers patients to unnecessary and costly additional appointments (contradicting other staff members' opinion) when annoyed with questions. Avoid at all costs. He was also late. Rest of staff were very friendly, competent, helpful and prompt.
