I honestly felt like I wanted to cry in my appointment. The staff is very friendly, they are very professional about what they do and I feel like I'm getting good treatment. That being said Russel Hayhurst is incredibly rude and harsh. He seems to have little to no empathy when discussing things with you. When you're a doctor who deals with people who experience difficulties in life with vision everyday, you'd think you would develop a little bit of a heart. Not the case with this Dr. have gone to him for 10+ years and finally have had the last straw. Will be looking for a doctor who actually is KIND. Maybe he should learn from his techs because they are sweet hearts.
