The doctor seemed annoyed that we were the last appointment. I didn't feel respected by him. He just kind of shot down my concerns and made me feel like I was just making stuff up. I will look for another eye doctor for my son and will not come back to Childrens Ophthalmology.

This was only the second time we've seen this doctor for my child's eye care because her original doctor left the practice. Not that he was not nice the first time but this time the doctor was much more personable and we really enjoyed the appointment.

Her Dr. expressed concern about her getting the best vision for her condition. he took his time even though she is a difficult patient to examine.

January 18, 2019

Felt we didn't have great communication about what was needed. Some frustration with each other.

My son is 4 years old and was extremely uncooperative with the exam, Making it very challenging for Dr. Luchansky to examine his eyes. Dr. was very patient with several tricks up his sleeve to help relax my son and make it possible to complete a thorough exam. Thank you for your patience Dr. Luchansky!
