The young technicians werel delightful and very professional. BUT, I was a bit surprised by Dr. Carlisle. Chinos and a plaid shirt with no lab coat seemed very unprofessional to me. I have never been in an Ophthalmologist's office where my Dr was not at least in a lab coat. And he only spend ffive minutes at the most with me, barely glancing into eyes. I suppose most of the work was done by the techs,
And when I got to the contact lens specialist, I was really disappointed. I was told that he did NOT have time to check the measurements of my gas perm lenses and tried to talk me into soft lenses. I have been told in the past, to NEVER wear soft lenses and he did not seem to like this idea and told me that I had to cut my nails (which were not long to begin with - I play the piano). I had to return one week later to have my lenses (these were 8 years old and I wanted my eyes to be measured to make sure nothing had changed) I didn't want to change the prescription in my lenses - said I was seeing well with them. I can NOT read with them and have always worn mono vision lenses. These were not quite that as I had lost my near eye contact and had pulled one out of a drawer. He changed them reluctantly. I was really confused by all of this. Then he told me that my lenses will be mailed to me. Why was't I coming back into the office to have them examined in my eyes to make sure that everything was correct. This TOO was totally different than anything that I have ever experienced.. Maybe it;s just me, but I was VERY disappointed in these visits. Hopefully when I get my lenses next week, ALL will be well! IF NOT, your office WILL be hearing from me - LOUDLY!
My husband has been a patient at the main office several times and has been treated with much care and much time taken with him on each visit, Maybe I should have gone to that office?
