Specialties

Dr. Stephen M Wahl 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.

I won't return

I am in my 60's and I have never met a more arrogant doctor. Rushed through the first (and only) appt. Was condescending when I asked questions, and generally dismissive. If you would like patience and compassion don't go toDr Wahl.

Find another doctor

I had a terrible experience with Dr. Wahl. My first and only visit he yelled at me, rushed through the exam and gave me a wrong prescription. When I had glasses made elsewhere, they didn't work. So I paid another doctor to reexamine me to check Wahl's prescription. Wjith this changed prescription, I had to have my glasses redone. Dr. Wahl is a rude and angry man. I later learned from a friend that he yelled at her on her first visit and she never went back either.
