Specialties

Dr. Paul J Befanis 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.

Rude, Unprofessional and Uncaring

My experience with Dr. Befanis was one of the worst I've had with any doctor. He was physically rough, didn't want to respond to any questions, was uncaring and only interested in talking rudely about his current divorce. He was equally unprofessional and inept in the care of my 79 year old mother. I wouldn't send my dog to him. Patient beware!
