    Patient Review

    Dr. Always engages me in conversation regarding my eye care. He always informs me about the different procedures he is using as he exams my eyes. I appreciate this part of the eye exam. I respect Dr Conklin so much and appreciate how he informs me about my eye health.

    The fact that I had to wait 4 months to get might impact if I refer others to this office. Dr. Conklin was very rushed through my appointment. I understand he has a busy schedule but makes it intimidating to ask questions if you feel so rushed and he needs to get on to the next patient.

      Dr. Conklin repeated almost verbatim what he said the last couple of years regarding my slowly developing cataracts.

      The physician clearly knew what he was doing but his bedside manner was not the best. Finding out you have serious eye issues is rather traumatic!

      Dr. Conklin has been my eye care physician for 25 years. He's the best. I always recommend him to my friends and family.

      That ophthalmologist was rushing through everything. All he was concerned with was getting me in and out and on to the next patient

      -
      Was in a hurry, didn't give ample time to ask about my injury or possible long term complications after having me wait an hour for him.

    • Patient Review

      -
      Someone got inside the room, and the doctor discussed something about another case in front of me. After the examination, the doctor left without a word. Someone looked like a nurse came in gave me a paper and asked me to check out. I said I had some questions then the Doctor came back to answer.

      Dr. Conklin explained my condition and gave me options for treatment. He also gave me a coupon for the product I needed to purchase.

      Dr Conklin listened to my concerns and examined my eyes, had additional tests run then returned to discuss and explain them with me. His service was great and he seemed to care about my condition. He could not find a root cause to my problem and requested / scheduled me to see an additional retinal specialist from UK for another opinion.

      All is well
    • Patient Review

      -
      He was disheveled and harried. I ask how he was and he said he was just trying to put one foot in front of the other. I was not told what my eye prescription is now. No one discussed getting glasses or contacts. I've never experienced anything like this visit.
    • Patient Review

      -
      The doctor rushed in, didn't even glance my way when he greeted me, but started talking and giving instructions. So quickly I missed two thirds of the info. Even though he was sitting, I got the impression that he had his hand on the door like he didn't have time to waste with this patient, because he didn't. And don't even think about asking questions or you'll get your head snapped off!

      Dr. Always seems like he's in a hurry and wants to end the conversation very quickly; not much empathy shown for my concerns.
    • Patient Review

      -
      Dr. Conklin was not a good communicator but seemed intent upon moving along in the interview, very business like. He did not make eye contact and appeared to care little for talk of anything other than 'why are you here?'

      Excellent on all the above, took his time in the evaluation, and answered all my questions, highly recommend!!

      Doctor was very rushed. I felt rushed. Had significant anxiety and he didn't really try to alleviate it. Had a secondary less serious eye issue that he rushed through. I did not feel heard.

      Explained fully the treatment he recommended.
    • Patient Review

      -
      He's in such a rush to get to the next room that all his answers are extremely redundant and like protocol reply
