Dr. On always seems to be behind schedule and rushed to be off to the next patient. The same conditions were present during DCR post-op visit. I think providers should be trained and expected to verify the patient understands what the providers are saying.

Dr. On´s specialty was not an area I had any idea existed until my dry eye specialist suggested seeing him. Dr. On´s interaction made me feel guilty having taken his time. He told me he was taking a sabbatical soon and defined it for me. I was not the one who pushed for this but felt let down after it.
