I needed a retina specialist for a detached retina and had a note from my optometrist explaining this. This Doctor took 2 hours to examine me and then told me I needed a retina specialist. I said that I knew that yesterday "what are you." "I'm a glaucoma specialist." Why am I here? His answer was," The good news is you don't have glocoma." The office was run down. It seemed like nobody liked working there. The doctor did not even introduce himself. The appointment should not have taken place. I should have been told I needed a different doctor from the beginning and for sure it should not take two hours!
