the wait time was way too long . my sons appointment was for 1:15pm and we didnt leave until 5:45. he was exhausted and it made it extremely hard to cooperate with testing needed for his eyes. but the technicians who were directed to take picture of his eyes by doctor, indicated he was too young for this test. he was scared and I was stressed thinking he needed the picture to confirm nothing was wrong with pigment in his eye. I became very overwhelmed and worried during this appointment, and at the end it still felt unresolved.

Dr. O is the bomb. She is amazing and should get a raise.

Daughter was given drops for an eye exam in the exam room. we were told they would take a few minutes to take effect and we were sent to the waiting room. After 45 minutes of waiting we expressed concern to the receptionist that we had another doctor appointment in an hour. The receptionist checked with the doctor and said my daughter would not be seen for at least another 45 minutes. This would have amounted to 90 minutes to be examined after drops were put in eyes. We had to leave and my daughter never got her exam. We live two hours away
