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.

Reviewed on Feb 5, 2020

the doctor seemed extremely capable and intelligent but he seemed much more interested in putting his face in the computer. he seemed annoyed at my questions as if I was bothering him and seemed annoyed that I wanted to be seen buy my normal doctor for the injection he was recommending. he just wanted to put me with any doctor for the injection which I'm sure is fine but I should have been allowed to attempt timely scheduling with my normal doctor and if unable to get a timely appointment have somebody else do it. this was eventually what occurred. he seemed very annoyed that I wanted a doctor familiar with my underlying disease that cause my issues. I understand any doctor could give the injection but it is important to me to have one familiar with my disease I don't think that's too much to ask and I further understand that my doctor doesn't treat the disease he treats 1 issue but I think it's important to have someone familiar with the disease. and unfortunately this seemed to be an issue with Dr eisengart. he is extremely intelligent but maybe should remember we're patient's and just because we ask questions to understand what is needed and what he is finding doesn't mean we are being difficult. he should be happy that we are being active in our own care.

Reviewed on Jan 28, 2020

I selected Dr. Eisengart for a second opinion about whether or not I absolutely need cataract surgery. It was his opinion that the condition did not present as needing to be done at this time. He further stated that it was his opinion that I would not obtain the desired results if he performed the surgery soon. I will make another appointment with him in one year per his request. I would also like to praise Dr. Eisengart for providing me with two prescriptions. One for working on computers with bifocal, and the other for driving and everyday locomotion. I received the prescriptions today and could not be happier with the strength of both set of glasses! I cannot believe that my other eye doctor never remedied my "work" eye sight problems by suggesting I have a weaker set of glasses for computer work. I suffered unnecessarily for years trying to do computer work. I am extremely thankful to Dr. Eisengart for his diagnosis and wisdom exhibited in his practice.
