Poor communication

I went for my yearly exam. I had changed physicians the year before to Dr. Atlas because I heard he is smart. He is smart but this year he gave me news about my eyesight that was worrisome with no explanation and no complete eye exam. I left the office thinking I was legally blind. His assistant did not communicate with me and neither did he. I was very disappointed. Since then, my insurance has changed again, I went to another physician who told me I was fine. I was at low risk for the other condition but my eyes were good except for cataracts. I am sorry to say I wouldn't recommend him. I was very disappointed.
