Had an 8 am appt. Had to wait for a guy from Lafayette to take a 10 second photo. Did not get the photo taken until 11:30. He was rude and expected my 7 year old Down's Syndrome child to kneel on a spinning rolling stool and cooperate to take a picture. He was arrogant and said, " I got the picture, but it is not that good". "But I got what I need, it's good enough". This is the second time that the same exact thing happened to us. The first time with me and the second time with my mom. Almost verbatim. He was in a small cramped room with other equipment around and would not even attempt to get a chair for him. I had to go in the hall to get a non rolling chair. At another prior appt (today makes the fourth and last ever visit to this facility), I asked the nurse or assistant why does it take so long to get into the actual appt. She replied, " You know how it is at a facility that no one has insurance". Really! Sorry, but I do have insurance and so what if they don't have insurance. Why do they need to be treated different? The doctor might be smart, but the staff is horrible and The company who services the photos should fire the man who takes the pictures. I would never recommend this place to anyone.
Dr. Acierno is very knowledgeable and thorough. She spends a lot of time with her patients and appears to be a direct and straight-forward individual, which may come across as lacking compassion. I feel that she's very busy and wants to make sure she is providing a thorough exam. My complaints are, there was no follow up, confirmed diagnosis or proposed treatment for my symptoms. One more . . . she's not a fan of returning phone calls. I won't critique the waiting time, it just could have been a bad day. Overall, I think she's a good doctor.
Dr. Marie Acierno's is very overbooked with many consults, so basically she see's you and then you are referred back to your original eye doctor. She takes her time and is very careful, but patients want to keep following the same Eye doctor especially if it is a chronic eye problem. I heard from some friends that she is also the head of the residency program and she is very involved at the Hospital and she is out of town so much.I would not invest anytime with her, since she is not around much.
