I felt Dr. Dieckert was in a hurry when examining me. The time spent with me felt "rushed". I wish he had taken more time to explain his findings in both eyes, and what the expected outcome will probably be. He was very kind and courteous otherwise, and will see me again in October for a follow up appointment. I hope he will give me time to ask some questions.

the tech that performed my screening scated me a bit about my vision because I could not see the majority of screens I was asked to read. i have macular degeneration with vision loss and am not expected to have 20/20 vision so probably the testing should have been geared for my actual vision capacity. thank goodness Dr. Dieckert assured me that my vision is stable and I am doing ok. he is a wonderful caring doctor
