Specialties

Dr. Robert R Ditkoff 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.

Money money doctor-avoid

Dr.Ditkoff has become quite money oriented rather than patient oriented. Refractory charges, not covered by insurance, are over the top and excessive. The office manager (Amy) is nasty and refuses to talk about billing and payment issues; says she's too busy. Collection agents are put on your tail even when payments are made and recorded. All in all, Dr. Ditkoff is running a money business, not a medical practice and it is a very unfriendly experience. Best to avoid.

Two Stars

Dr Ditkoff has made it extremely hard to make an appointment unless you do not work. There is no consideration for those people who work for a living. He may be an good dr but if you cannot get an appointment he is useless

Surgical complications and did I really need corneal tests?

Although attentive when I had major complications after my surgery, I find that I now have night vision problems from my cataract surgery. I think my lenses are too small and when my iris opens up at night, while driving, I have prominent and hugely distracting circles and halo rings around all sources of light. I did not care for his associate Dr. Sarachek, not one bit. Also, $350 per eye for a measurement test...not covered by insurance, perhaps excessive.

Patient

I have found both his associate and Himself to be very competent, Patient and concerned when it comes to dealing with his me and my conerns. His staff was courteous, professional and attentive to my needs. He is very busy and deservedly so because he is very very good at what he does.
