The staff squeezed me in during their lunch hour. I was incredibly grateful. Because I hadn't been seen since [date removed] I was considered a new patient. I left a message with the new Pt Coordnator the day before but did not hear back. So I called the next day and the wonderful woman at the front desk got me in within an hour of explains my situation. The team at Devers was great. Kudos to all of them.

Dr Thanos is the best ophthalmologist I've ever seen. He is a highly trained doctor researcher and surgeon. There are things I learned from him that have never been shared with me before. What a blessing his choice of ophthalmology is for me and my good luck becoming his new patient.

I have no problem with Dr. Thanos and his staff. They are caring and very professional. It's the hospital (Good Samaritan) and the receptionist that are receiving very low marks. The hospital is a nightmare, and very difficult to navigate. Once the correct location was found, one receptionist was too busy joking with other staff to do her job. As I needed to come back, I was able to speak with a different receptionist who was courteous and kind. I WILL NOT RETURN TO GOOD SAM UNLESS I AM AT DEATH'S DOOR AND HAVE NO OTHER OPTION.
