Right on target. Dr Storm undertook an eye exam, then proceeded to evaluate the condition which led to my visit. He diagnosed the condition and laid out three treatment options of varying levels of intensity. All in all, I was veryhappy with Dr Storm's expertise and bedside manner and I am already undertaking one of the treatment options.

The key is getting to your appointment on time. The wait was not too long. I may have waited just a little over 30 minutes, but once you are called in, you forget all about it because Dr. Storm is alwaysso pleasant with a smile on his face. And hey, it is okay to smile at your doctor too! You'll know just how genuine they are when they smile back and Dr. Storm always smiles. Maybe my smile is contagious, but Dr. Storm is wonderful and his bedside manner is one of the best I've experienced. He is very thorough, gentle and does exactly what is in the best interest of his patients. I have been seeing Dr Storm for about 2-3 years now and I will not go to any other eye doctor. The office is clean and the staff members are friendly and low key. No rowdiness going on at the front desk.

Seeing Dr. Storm was only just fine. He was running 30 minutes behind, there were a ton of people in the waiting room and the front desk people are dismissive and not very nice. He answered my questions but his equipmentis very old (he still needs to dilate your eyes whereas you can go to many optometrists and a machine will map your retina without any blurry downtime). They just put a tissue over an old crusty eyepatch for one of the tests rather than have an actual plastic bag around anything that I touched--so I also worry about sterility of the office. I probably won't go back.

I arrived early and ended up being seen a bit sooner than my appointment time which was great because I was squeezing in my health concerns before going to work and didn't want to be too late. Dr. Storm was friendly, thorough and efficient. Thank you very much!
