Specialties

Dr. Paul C Salmonsen 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.

Two Stars

His "bedside manner" leaves a lot to be desired. Seems assuring himself of a bountiful retirement is priority over his patients. Not very communicative. Sad.

good doctor, poor staff

I was overbilled, being told that Blue Cross didn't cover a procedure (refraction) when in fact they did. I subsequently had to call Blue Cross and ask them to talk directly with the resistant receptionist. On the same visit I was erroneously given a refill prescription for one 30 day supply for Travatan drops rather than the customary 90 day, and am currently trying to get the Doctor's office to correct their error. The Doctor is an excellent opthamologist, but needs to take control of an arrogant and, too often, incompetent main secretary at the front desk. I'm seriously considering changing doctors.
