Dr. Polat is excellent. She is efficient and careful while also being friendly. Everything is explained in clear terms. I highly recommend her to any experience problems with their eyes.

the wait time and overbooking of appointments is concerning.

I had a thorough exam by a resident who was very nice. Then I saw Dr. Polat alone so I don't really know what was communicated between them which felt like a disregard for my interest in my assessment. Dr Polat was very straightforward in addressing my condition and I have confidence in her knowledge but I did not feel invited to discuss my concerns. This was my first visit and I will come back for follow up but I did not have a welcoming experience

My mother is almost 90 years old. She had a 1:15 appointment and we were the last to leave at 5:20 PM. No-one cared when I kept asking what was taking so long!! My mom was crying she wanted to leave & again I repeat.....NOONE CARED!!!!We saw 2 residents and at the very end Dr. Polat came for 5 minutes!!!!!! This is totally unacceptable as a patient and patient advocate.
