a review of my file will show that I am currently under the care of several BSW Doctors in multiple locations for a myriad of reasons. I have developed a deep appreciation for the staffs and BSW methodologies that I have encountered. EXCEPT WITH THIS DOCTOR AND HIS ASSISTANT! I will never return to his office for any reason. The short explanation is that my entire experience was rushed, insensitive and left me knowing, not feeling, that they both had more important and pressing things to do than slow down and just be present with me during me appointment. I\'d love to visit with their supervisor to explain the details.

I told the nurse about my problem, but when the doctor came in he talked about an old problem (dry eye) then was ready to leave. I told that wasn\'t what I came in for. He briefly examined the new problem (double vision) then prescribed glasses with prism. This is not the appropriate treatment for a nerve palsy because it usually goes away within a few months and then the glasses wouldn\'t work anymore. There was no discussion of the cause of my double vision. I was very dissatisfied with my visit!

My experiences with Dr. Cessec have been great. I was seeing him a few years ago at the Scott&White Clinic at Sun City and then he left so I was assigned another eye care physician. The other physician was also very good but when informed that Dr. Cessec was back at the Sun City Clinic, I was glad to be able to come back there to see him. I will continue to go to Dr. Cessec unless he leaves to go elsewhere.
