Dr. Scott M Bornstein 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.

Long wait times, rude Doctor

I waited 60-90 minutes each for 3 different appointments as he overbooks and is inconsiderate of patients' time. He was very rough in the exam and dug his fingernail into the sensitive area under my eye. When I told him he was hurting me, he said he had to do this to see the eye. He could have used the pad of his finger without causing such pain. I would never go back there. Waiting room and bathroom are awful.

Excellent doctor. Long waits in uncomfortable waiting area. The whole place needs a facelift. Bottom line is good medical care but experience would be more pleasant with comfortable chairs and shorter waits.

Office Equipment

Before his assistant examined my eyes, I asked her to wipe the machine that Measures Glocoma, but she refused, saying she does it after each patient. It would have only taken a couple of seconds for her to do it, but I guess she though I was questioning her cleanliness.
