the wait time is always very long. I was taken back to the room at my appointment time. medical assistant checked my vision, checked the pressure in my eyes, and dilated my eyes within 15 minutes. I then waited another 50 minutes until the doctor came in who only spent 10 minutes with me having prescription in hand. The only other thing he did was look at the back of my eyes. There has to be a more efficient way of processing patients for regular eye appointments. I always have to wait at minimum 45 minutes for the doctor to come in. it is a waste of my time when he is really only coming in to give me the signed prescription. I dread having to make my vision appointment each year and would actually go somewhere else if I could get the special eye scans I need each year due to medication I take. the rest of my family already go to other vision centers for their yearly vision tests.

He was great. When I got to the Eye Institute, I found someone had cancelled my appointment. Although I had a phone call to remind me and it was listed in My Chart, it had been cancelled. I know the doctor had to work me in at that point, and I appreciated it very much.

Good Doctor but his lack of acknowledging the patient by last name when entering the exam was disturbing. Seems like Scott and White have gotten away from initially greeting the patient by their last name and then discussing the patients concerns and questions. Scott and White. As a professional in the military and as a retired Criminal justice Supervisor I would never start a conversation with a person without first addressing them by their last name and then interact with the person. The Killeen clinic staff have outstanding people skills but when I travel to Temple it seems like this skill set is not present in addressing the patient.
