Dr. Sandor was dismissive and unbothered. He seemed to want to rush me out of the exam room, and didn't appear to be listening to any of my questions or concerns, often interrupting me while I was trying to accurately describethe problem and my own history with this particular eye issue. I wouldn't recommend seeing him.

Everything seemed routine. Friendly doctor. Just wished they earned me about the refractory fee which wouldn't be covered by insurance before we began the examination.

DR. Sandoor seemed very knowledgeable what was wrong with my eyesight probably before he even examined me. The front desk receptionist/coordinator was very professional and helpful. I have to go back to get fitted for contact lenses, and Ihave yet to get my glasses due to insurance issues. However, if all goes well, I would highly recommend him

His receptionist is a disgrace to his profession, She is the most rude and unethical person I have even seen in a medical office. She lies bluntly on your face and she shouts on you. The billing practice of this doctoris incorrect. He charges you for whatever he feels like with wrong diagnostic codes and when you request a correction, his secretary would just be rude to you. They keep saying me they sent me bills which I never received and they were putting finance charges to it. I would never recommend someone to go to this doctor for any reason.

Dr. Sandor is perfectly nice and helpful, but he simply did NOT recognize the severity of my problem. I woke up this morning with the same extreme pain and blurred vision that I have been experiencing for the last 3 months(it has been two months since my last visit with Dr. Sandor). I will be seeing another doctor for a second opinion this week

I had a terrible experience. Dr. examined me and didn't realize I was wearing contact lenses. I had to ask him when I should remove them. He then reached INTO MY EYES and TOOK THEM OUT FOR ME. He then beganputting tiny little corrections into his machine, not realizing that I am SEVERELY near-sighted. I left the office with the WRONG GLASSES PRESCRIPTION (his error) and no contact prescription because that is a separate fee. A total and complete waste of the one visit I am entitled to per my insurance each year.

Very professional and a thorough exam. I used Dr. Sandor 1.5 years ago when I had a problem and came back to have him do my routine eye exam. Much better than going to those Pearl Vision Centers.

Visit was great the only thing I can complain about is the paperwork. They suggest to complete it on line but still had to fill out over 10 pages in his office. So you have to fill it out twice.

The doctor seemed to know a lot, however, there were extra charges at the end of the meeting. I'd rather have an office/doctor that tells me what they will do before it's done and explain why it's being done. It costme extra money because they said my insurance doesn't accept that particular procedure. I also received a second bill even though I paid about 6 months back. I had to provide proof that I paid for the balance.

I wanted more information about what was being done. When I asked questions I would get simple answers which didn't explain anything. He seemed to know what he was doing, but it didn't seem important to him to explain to hispatient what he was doing or what he was going to do, even when I asked him.
