I have been to two specialists at Johns Hopkins, two other opthalmologists, and one dermatologist for diagnoses of ocular rosacea and blepharitis. Only the dermatologist spent much time listening to me, but I have to question both of her conclusions,based on this visit. I can't way whether Dr. Latkany's conclusions were right quite yet, but he did spend more time actually looking at me while I talked, and responding to what I asked, than the 4 opthalmologists I've seen. I felt like a person, not an eyeball.

The doctor was knowledgeable and courteous. He carefully reached his observation on the root causes of my dry eyes and was direct in his communication regarding solutions, which I appreciated. This was my best opthomologist visit in the citythus far, and I plan to return for my check up in a couple of months. Glad I got my check up here today!

Everything was great EXCEPT I was given eye drops that severely impaired my vision for several hours. I understand that they were necessary for the tests but I would have liked to have been warned when I made the appointment. IfI'd known, I would have gone towards the end of a workday, not at the beginning!

The doctor was very pleasant and professional and easy to speak with. The staff in front ended up being helpful and somewhat friendly but started off being curt. Not a deal breaker (I'll probably o here again) but would make a big difference if front staff were friendlier.

I was suffering with what I thought was chronic dry eye for months. I was seeing an ophthalmologist in DC who had ran out of ideas. After reading Dr. Latkany's book, The Dry Eye Remedy, I got about fourteen new ideasthat have majorly helped. Within minutes, Dr. Latkany explained how my eyes were not dry, but that I was suffering from ocular rosacea. He gave me lifestyle advice and the changes have turned my entire life around. I was spending hundreds of dollars on eye drops per month and now I only use eye drops every few days thanks to his advice. If you have been suffering with dry eye issues and are at the end of your rope, a visit to Dr. Latkany is worth every dollar!

I went to see Dr. Latkany after becoming frustrated with other doctors who weren't very helpful in treating my problem—and tried to treat it without really figuring out what was going on. Dr. Latkany listened carefully, talked me through thepossibilities, and is committed to finding out what's at the root of my problem and then treating it. I'm very glad to have found him. Staff was great too!
