don"t trust her

went to see her. First visit was ridiculous. Now I am supposed to go back - more tests really??? How come my Doc at Illinois Eye takes care of these things right away. Don't go to her - come to Peoria for a "real visit" and not this running back and forth. from so disappointed!!!

Very pushy

Felt pressured to have surgery and to buy the upgrade lens. Was promised that I would not have to wear glasses to read. Not true. I am unable to read labels and some menus without help. Night driving is almost impossible. When I complained about was told to just give it time. It's been over a year and its no better. Recently I was talking to a friend about my experience when a lady came up to me to say she had overheard what I had said. She said that she used to work for Dr Yeh and quit for the very reasons I had said. She didn't like trying to get patients to buy unnecessary services.
