During my appointment last week on 9/29/2021Dr. Eisengart did not want to answers my medical questions in regard la of my vision and prognosis and future plan for surgery.I am a physician with really complex visual issues trying to continue my professional and day to day life as normal as posible.After his examination, I asked him a question his answer was: you know what I need to keep moving, his body language was also mean, rude and disrespectful to a colleague and patient.After I make a point that I need to understand my current situation about my vision, he answer the question. I was considering him to do my surgery in the future bit after this. I will look for another option.I AM TAKING MY TIME TO DO THIS REVIEW PLEASE TAKE IT IN CONSIDERATION.This will help many other patients if issue like this get addressed. He maybe the best Glaucoma specialist at CCF BUT he needs to learn to be more kind, humble and listen to patients concerns.Best regardsDr. Cohen
