I really liked the office. It was busy and I had to wait, but it was understandable with the last minute appointment. He was thorough and did a great exam.

I was seen as a new patient and my appt was at 10am for a problem focused eye exam. I checked in at 9:50 am. The med-tech took me in about 10:10am. She did the work-up and pretesting which took about 30 mins. Then I was asked to wait in another waiting area for the doctor at 10:45, with my dilated pupils...There were about 6 others in this transitional waiting area. After seeing several patients come and go, at about 11:30 I asked when was I going to see the doctor. It was already 1 1/2 past my 10:00 am appt. They said he's very busy and he has a LOT of patients, and I had a few more people ahead of me. They took me in a room where I waited another 20 mins. Then at 11:55 (almost 2 hrs past my appt time of 10:00) I finally got to see Dr. Davidorf. He was great, thorough, and fast. No complaints about the doctor. But waiting 2 hrs to see him was not something I can imagine doing again...I've never had to wait 2 hrs to see a doctor...I thought that was the purpose of having an appointment? if I were informed ahead of time or during the process perhaps it would have been better. I could have cancelled and rescheduled. Perhaps I would have selected another provider? Message to provider's office: PLEASE DON'T SCHEDULE A 10:00 AM APPT IF THE DOCTOR ISN'T GOING TO SEE YOU UNTIL 12:00 PM (11:55)

Great doctor, although some of the women working the desk (not all!) were extremely rude. And waiting over an hour is unacceptable, let your patients know if an emergency occurred.
