over the years I have come across four doctors now under the Sight MD umbrellas that should have their licenses revoked. Thankfully I am still here to tell my tale 1. diagnosed with age related degeneration (NEVER HAPPENED) 2. WRONG PRESCRIPTION FOR GLASSES BELONGED TO SOMEONE ELSE (ANOTHER ERROR) 3.dignosed with glaucoma but no other exams with other doctors found that so(STILL ANOTHER MISTAKE) 4.Given drops for glaucoma to which I was severely allergic and no one cared. Took it upon myself to stop the drops.

Upon entering the Site MD Garden City, NY office on Monday, July 6, 2020 at about 4:30pm, I noticed the small waiting room. I was surprised that a medical practice during these uncertain times even allowed to have a waiting room nevertheless patients actually IN THE WAITING ROOM. I checked in for my 96 year old mother with the receptionist. While I was at the desk, 3 other patients arrived and sat down, and filled the socially distanced chairs. Not one temperature was taken upon their arrival (I am unsure as to when/if temperatures were taken) These patients ALL could have had temperature but the damage was done. We were now in this small poorly ventilated waiting room. Next, we were directed from reception to "test" area to exam room one and then exam room 2 where we finally met with the doctor. The staff were all wearing masks and gloves. However, I did not witness ANY changing of gloves nor washing hands with gloves by either the assistant that I first saw or the doctor. The exam was not thorough and I felt as if the doctor was just going through the "exam motions". Dr Van did not bother to ask of any medical concerns. After conducting her less than mediocre exam she suggested that one more test was needed. It was back to the first "test area". Please note that this test area is not a room but a passageway to go from the front waiting/reception to the exam rooms. Dr. Van did not wait for us to follow her to the next test. I had to move the equipment in the exam room to assist my mother with her walker, and make sure she did not fall or get struck by the swinging equipment. We did not know where Dr. Van had disappeared so we sat down in the "thoroughfare test area" where I had to question who is assisting my mother. Finally, the assistant arrived, tested my mother's eyes again. We were told that Dr. Van would be here in a few minutes. At this juncture and after waiting more than a few minutes, and the office was getting crowded. There was a bit of traffic heading through this "test" area. Fearing my mother's health, I told the receptionist that I did not feel safe/ and mine an my mother's health was as risk as there was too much "traffic" and wanted to leave. I peered into the waiting room, and now there was at least 7 people sitting next to one another along the wall. There was obviously no social distancing. I did not want to observe the other part of the room as I knew it was crowded. I asked to wait in another room because I for fear of COVID. One of the staff members told me that if I went into another room, the doctor may forget that I was in the office. I again explained my concern for my health. The receptionist called the doctor who emerged from another exam room and quickly went over our last test results. At that point I just wanted to get out of that unhealthy office. My time was wasted and my and my mother's health was put in jeopardy. However my main concern is our health. This office showed every lack of concern for following COVID-19 protocol. This is a practice of just moving the patients unsafely in and out, and disregard health concerns. If I could "return" the treatment like we can return department store merchandise, I would DEMAND the return.

I was surprised that a medical practice during these uncertain times even allowed to have a waiting room nevertheless patients actually IN THE WAITING ROOM. I checked in for my 96 year old mother with the receptionist It was only about 15 minutes after I checked in and completed my paperwork, that she checked mine and my mother's temperature. While I was at the desk, 3 other patients arrived and sat down, and filled the socially distanced chairs.

At this juncture and after waiting more than a few minutes, I noticed the office was getting crowded and there was a bit of traffic heading through this "test" area. A mother and her son soon sat down next to us on this "testing area." There were now 5 of us sitting in this "thoroughfare". Fearing my mother's health, I told the receptionist that I did not feel safe/ and mine an my mother's health was as risk as there was too much "traffic" and wanted to leave. I peered into the waiting room, and now there was at least 7 people sitting next to one another along the wall. There was obviously no social distancing.

One of the staff members told me that if I went into another room, the doctor may forget that I was in the office. I asked for my Rx, again, and explained my concern for my health. The receptionist called the doctor who emerged from another exam room and quickly went over our last test results. At that point I just wanted to get out of that unhealthy office. Finally, upon leaving, we were handed the Rx. I will not attempt to fill this Rx as the doctor did not take the time to explain it and I question that the Rx is correct. (I did find a review when I researched further that this office gave one patient and her husband incorrect Rx after they filled them and paid for new glasses! ) My time was wasted and my and my mother's health was put in jeopardy. However my main concern is our health. This office showed every lack of concern for following COVID-19 protocol. This is a practice of just moving the patients unsafely in and out, to collect the premium and disregard health concerns. If I could "return" the treatment like we can return department store merchandise, I would DEMAND the return.

I went to sight MD to get cataract surgery, My cataract was only lightly bad but I did not want o wear eye glasses . I spoke to DR Lawrence Zweibel about it it. I told him I had laser surgery over 20 years ago. He told me replacing it with a lens will give me good eye sight but I would need glasses for reading. I said ok lets do it. When it was done the eye I had the surgery resulted in severe double vision . I went back to see him and he was not understanding about it, I told him I am having a real hard time seeing now. Then he told me it was from my laser surgery I had 20 years ago ( I do not believe it) . Then he told me it would cost me another $1000 to correct it. He was totally unprofessional about it. He told me my vision would be good for long distance but need reading glasses that was not the case at all. My vision is now worse then before. I am now going to another eye center to see if they can correct or re do it. This was not good my vision is so bad I can barely drive. I want people to understand what I am saying so you do not get into this bad situation .
