Extremely knowledgeable and informative

I usually go to the Montefiore office for Dr. Martell, and would be waiting up to 3 hours (in waiting room and exam room), and sometimes end up seeing other doctor than Dr. Martell. At Mercy office, I only waited for 30-40 min, which is still long, but much better than previous experience. Otherwise my interaction with Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Martell have been good.

My examination I don't believe was the full circle of my eyes. Only the areas that were operated on. Other areas might have indicated a problem starting.
