I very much like this clinical practice, the staff works together well. The system is that you are assessed by a ophthalmology assistant, then seen by a general ophthalmologist (perhaps a fellow), then Dr. Vilar. Each visit is relatively brief,but assessments and notes are taken and turned over. I found that they listened well and noted what I said, and answered questions as we went along. I recommend this practice.
