This appointment was at the Springs locaation and I had virtually no wait at all. My appointments at the downtown office usually have had a wait of more than hour. I will try to make my appointments at the Springs office from now on.

It was easy to schedule an appointment, there was minimal waiting in the office, everyone listened to me, and the doctors were knowledgeable in their specialty. They explained my condition and set up a plan. I feel so comforted knowing such competent experts are there to help me get through this.

Dr Eiferman spoke about how he and Dr Compton would work as a team and how everything was in the system that they could both see his charts and notes. Yet when we saw Dr Compton it was as if he never reviewed Dr Eiferman's notes and requests for joint services. With my condition, they have to be a team and as of right now, they are not on the same page.

My son was shot in the head and lost vision in his eye. The plastic surgeon explained the procedure for having his eye removed and also expressed that I should allow my son to decide when he is comfortable and ready to have the surgery unless it becomes a more urgent matter. I really appreciated his honesty and patience with us!

One question was NA. This was first time ever visit with U/L. My eye dr sent me here/there. Initially I could not be seen for 6 months but once he changed need to urgent I got in quickly. I have not heard from Baptist Floyd to schedule CAT scan but I have surgery scheduled 10 weeks out from my one visit. I was amazed at the quality of care. I expected to be treated like a cog in a machine with 10 min visit. Everyone of the three medical personnel I interacted with was awesome, especially Dr Compton who has a very reassuring demeanor and Sventlana (did not get full name sorry for misspelling. I have told a number of people who suprised I was to have the level of care I experienced.
