The visit was fine, and I was attended to immediately by an assistant, however, there was some wait to see the actual doctor. When I did, I felt he was nice enough but somewhat rushed, considering the amount of time Ihad to wait for him. I wished he had seemed a little less rushed in talking with me about my concerns.

I have been seeing Dr. Schor for over a year now. He is the best. He always sees me on time, explains everything to me and answers all of my questions. He recently did cataract surgery on me and called meat my home the same night of the surgery to see how I was doing and called me the next day to check up on me. He gave me his number to call him in case I had any problems or had questions. I would highly recommend him to everyone. Excellent doctor and I should add has a great sense of humor.

I feel that I'm in very good hands with Dr. Ken Schor. I was recently referred to him, and I'm very glad to have him as my eye physician. He is caring and his bedside manner is outstanding. He will takeas much time with you as you need to ask questions and understand your diagnosis and options for treatment. I don't usually write recommendations about anything, but I am taking this time to recommend Dr. Schor and the medical practice overall where he works. Everyone at the practice is very caring.

He was very polite and friendly, but it's not the main characteristic of a medical doctor. He couldn't make a conclusion or give me any advise based on my symptoms, just told me a list of possible reasons. He didn't lookinterested in analyzing or deep thinking, he didn't ask any additional question to solve the issue with my eyes health conditions. So I got no help from him, just ordinary eyesight check.
