Dr. Mark K Herschel 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.

I must have seen Dr. Herschel 20 times in Nov./Dec. 2017. I had a severe infection and ulcer on my cornea and I literally felt like he blamed me for the fact that it took a long time for it to heal. He never, ever, once asked me how I felt or how much pain I was in. He spoke to me in a clinical manner and never as a doctor who really cared for me as a human being or one of his patients. The last time I saw him and asked about surgery to repair my scar tissue he said emphatically "I not going to touch your cornea" (with no explanation) and left the exam before I was done asking my questions. I've been told he is an excellent surgeon but his bedside manner is atrocious. At least it was with me.

Extremely thorough and informative during my visit. I was getting a second opinion on an eye problem that has not been improving from another doctor. I was so relieved and happy to find an answer and a treatment plan, I have all the confidence in Dr. Herschel.
