If they had my previous medical records they would've seen that I had an eye exam just a couple months ago and everything was fine. So why did the assistant do all the routine eye tests again? Did you really have my records or more likely it's a billable procedure - not good.

Assistant male was very friendly and put me at ease. Doctor was the same and answered all my questions, gave me a chance to back out of procedure, and was very thorough. Only negative was I was not advised prior to the visit that I should have parked in a ramp, so instead, I paid for street parking many blocks away.

My initial appt was scheduled to last 20 min, but I had to wait 40 min and while my provider was fast and articulate, speed is not always beneficial

Her demeanor was calming, I was anxious about being inside because of Covid as I have not had anyone in my place since Covid started. I thought I was starting a panic attack, but as soon as the doctor walked in and started speaking my breathing became slower and more normal. Her prognosis was correct, as I've had this problem once before.
