Dr. Theodora Petratos, MD

Ophthalmologist

Professional statement

I love working with my patients and I greatly enjoy operating and providing better vision. There is nothing better for me than taking out someone’s cataract, performing a Cornea transplant, or Laser surgery and seeing the patient’s reaction when they can see better than they previously could. It is such a satisfying and emotional experience. I would like to continue improving my skills in the next twenty years so that I can continue to provide even better and more advanced care.

My first time visit to Woodbury Optical was extremely disappointing. Staff failed to acknowledge my arrival and greet me in a friendly manner. I had downloaded and completed the required forms and still waited 30 minutes to be seen by thetechnician prior to meeting with the doctor. My glasses were taken from me to have the prescription read by the optician and not returned until I asked for them after waiting another 15 minutes. Staff gathered around the receptionist desk were engaged in private conversations in spite of 6-8 waiting clients sitting within earshot. There was no sense of welcome in the waiting area, several patients over 50 were addressed by their first names. I was seen by the doctor 75 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. Dr. Petratos was professional and took her time to answer all my questions and concerns. No one offered apologies for the unexplained excessive waiting time. Unprofessional support staff and unfriendly service- I will not return or recommend this facility to anyone.

Receptionist was incredibly rude!! I visited this place 4-5 times, trust me, every single time I felt the same way. But the doctors were good enough and another good thing is that it is very close to my house. However, I will never come back again!

I was disappointed with the fact that I had to wait for almost an hour to be seen by the doctor. When I asked if this was normal, I was told that there were a lot of patients who had seriousissues. Maybe in the future, if you know there will be patients that may take some time to be seen, put more time in between appointments. Also she dilated my eyes without telling me she was going to dilate them and I had no one with me to drive me home. So I had to drive home with dilated pupils. That's very dangerous. Not sure if I would rush back
