Specialties

Dr. Stephen C Dinsmore 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.

Complicated Surgery

I'm giving Dr Dinsmore very high marks for navigating a complex cataract surgery in an eye that had sustained an injury decades ago. He demonstrated absolute professionalism as he diagnosed the damage and developed a plan to execute the surgery in a manner that accounted for the prior injury. There was no cookie cutter formula here. It's nice to know that Dr Dinsmore is a detailed surgeon who is on top of his game and looking to assure the best outcome for his patients.

Dr. Dinsmore provides great service and is a very good doctor. Also, I happen to know that he did bilateral cataract surgery on a patient who had no insurance for a very reasonable cost. He's a good doctor and a good person.

Added extra services to the bill, overcharged. Rude and stubborn workers, but the doctors are good. Expect to wait an hour in line, as random people walk in front of you
