Staff courteous and helpful. Dr. spent time & gave excellent examination-she explained in language I easily understood. Great Doctor!
I had a 9:30 appt. with Dr. FIVGAS and arrived at 9:10. Upon arrival there was so many patients in the lobby waiting to checkin that I had to wait about 3 or 4 minutes in order to be be able to open the door in order to enter the lobby. After checking in and sitting in the waiting area for approximately 40 minutes, I was called to the back where a couple of quick procedures were done and then I was seated in the waiting room in the back for at least 1 hour and 15 minutes. I was finally seen by Dr. Fivgas for approximately 10 minutes, told there was no change that everything looked the same and to make an appointment to return in 6months. I left the office at 11:45. My wife, who was waiting in the outer waiting room, was asked by another patient that was waiting to see Dr. Fivgas what time my appt. was scheduled. When she replied 9:30, he and 2 others that were still waiting responded that was also their appointment time. I like Dr. Fivgas and think he is a good doctor, but the over booking and the wait time is ridiculous! I am considering trying to find another retina specialist. I have always had extremely long waiting times when seeing Dr. Fivgas and feel this is inconsiderate and unprofessional.
Excellent service! They came highly recommended from my ophthalmologist. They were able to address my emergency quickly and efficiently. Professional staff and Dr. Fivgas is well known as the best. Also they are Covid conscious which I am appreciative of.
Prompt attention after checking in, excellent pre-physician assessment, courteous, professional review of symptoms and insightful, professional treatment. Also, a plan for future treatment, depending on disease course, was outlined specifically.
