It is very difficult to ask any questions of Dr. Eisengart about treatment or progression of glaucoma. He becomes noticeably irritated if he believes he has already answered the question during a previous visit or has already addressed the topic during this visit. For instance, he put me on glaucoma drops at this appointment but did not tell me what the pressure rating was in my eyes compared to my previous visit when he did not prescribe eye drops. It is an uncomfortable atmosphere in which to ask questions about treatment or progression of glaucoma.

Difficult location and long wait time plus a snotty physician doesn't lead to a positive recommendation. The only reason I'm still a Clinic parient is the excellence of medical care received overall.

Dr. Eisengart did cataract surgery on my right eye in April, 2019. I was VERY happy with the results of that procedure, and my vision improved almost immediately. Gradually, I began having trouble seeing when the light in a room is not bright. This return visit to him is because my optometrist discovered a secondary cataract in the same eye 14 months later. I was able to quickly get an appointment with Dr. Eisengart. My 2 ratings for five of the seven questions here are because I did not feel like Dr. Eisengart heard my concerns; ultimately, he recommended I get new glasses. I went back to the optometrist to order those, and when that doc looked at the 'new' prescription, there was almost NO difference between it and what's in my glasses. SO, I decided not to spend the $. Dr. Eisengart was short and snappish with me -- I may not come back.
