I was referred to Dr. Churner by a local optometrist. I have a Fuch's condition that was a little unusual, and he spent the entire visit trying to think of a clever name for my condition. His making light of my eye condition really upset me. He was unable to treat it as well. Not very pleased. The staff also had difficulty operating some of their equipment, which made me feel like a guinea pig while they repeatedly attempted to take measurements. Very frustrating.
I just wanted to schedule a Lasik consult appointment and had to call four times within a week to try to schedule that initial visit since no one would call me back. After finally getting the person on the phone who can handle 'those calls,' (to ask the questions to determine if you're a Lasik candidate), I was told that they don't even do Lasik anymore but that they refer to another doctor at another facility - so what is the point but to waste an entire week of my time. I was so angry that I called back and asked to speak with the office manager only to be told that that person, too was out of the office for the next week. I will definitely be going elsewhere.
I would never recommend Dr Churner. I have since spoke with many of his patients and how unhappy they were. He made a mistake and then would only fix it if I paid for it. His Mistake!!! Now I will need to go another Dr. at my expense any way. Insurance will only pay once, so you are out of luck. He lies. I would not have him touch my eyes now. That would be like having a FOX guard the Hen House.
