Excellent! I especially appreciated her taking the initiative to show slides of my retinas to me and explain what was going on. She did, in kind, what a corps of specialists I recently met in the MGH hospital, while I was admitted there, and my PCP did not/too often do not do by way of elucidating the findings from examinations. These are typically N/A or it is deemed unimportant to take the time to go over things with me, the patient! She was rational, yet professional in expressing concern for how I was taking it all in. Previously, she made it possible for me to sing in a Choral Society by fitting me with a prescription for lenses which are perfect for the conditions of reading scores. My previous ODs were not singers in this life or a previous one! Alas! I can't wait till next year for my next appointment!
