Dr. Trachtman has been my sons eye doctor since his premature birth, in 2000, at LV Hospital, he is both caring and compassionate and chooses not to sugar coat anything, we know right up front what we are faced with and he is in our corner fighting with us every step of the way to ensure my sons eyesight, which is poor, to say the least, does not diminish all together..
My child was having episodes of double vision and one eye was going in. Took her to the ER and had an MRI which was negative. They asked us to follow up with an eye doctor. I heard wonderful things about Dr. Trachman so I was happy to get an appointment the very next morning. He seemed very short and rushed with my daughter. He was actually arguing with her that she could see. He also told her that if she doesn't see the next step is going to the hospital for a needle in your back or eye. It was very inappropriate. He then asked my daughter to leave and told me she was lying and making it up because she wants glasses. He went as far to show me he can make one eye cross and that she duped the Ped ER dr's at Lehigh valley hospital. He then told me to lie to my daughter that she would be getting glasses. I left speechless. Never have I or my child been treated by a dr in such a way. Obviously the episodes kept happening so we took her to CHOP where we saw wonderful Nuerologists and optometrists. They figured out the correct diagnosis and we are relieved. I wish we never would have went to Dr Trachman. The fact that he just assumed my child was lying because this was above his medical knowledge is atrocious.
