Dr. Paul E Runge 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.

He's has been all that was appreciated in the good review, yet when he didn't like the health insurance of an 88 year old retired first grade teacher from Ohio who has been his patient for several years, he instructed his nursing staff to dismiss her as a patient right before her scheduled treatment.Think of a frail, little old lady already quaking for fear of the needle being told that her beloved doctor won't allow her to return. Think of her fear of not being able to see anything because her beloved doctor won't treat her again. I, her daughter and caregiver, only asked that we wait to discuss the matter "Later!" We were denied and insulted.
What a great experience having a doctor call you back right away in an emergency, ask the appropriate questions, check back later that day AND call the next day also just to make sure everything was okay. Very professional and caring. He was the on-call doctor who I had not known prior to this call. He was so nice, it prompted me to look him up.
