If you love your eyes/vision.. Run far away..

As another reviewer stated. Rude, inconsiderate and unprofessional. Misdiagnosis and does not listen to patients's symptoms or complaints. Does not explain procedure or followup. How does an eye doctor dictate to the patient what they can and can not see?

I have been going to Dr Kastl for years he he has left Tulane and gone to to the VA. My heart is broken. I trusted him, he did eye surgery for me. He is young at heart and thorough. He is missed and I can't go to the Va. :(
