good experienceDec 09,2019
I was a little disappointed because the doctor was very aware of my macular degeneration and I had the retina test...I was having a terrible allergy problem with both my eyes...they were itchy, swollen and red and they did not address that even though I asked about it. I had to come back on another appointment to see Dr Gupta who addressed the problem and gave me ointment which cost a fortune. Hopefully it works. My question is if it was so bad why didn't the nurse or doctor detect this infection? Just saying.Oct 09,2019
