Dr Wittenberg is full of energy. Her appointments seem to be short and sweet but it doesn't come across as rushing the patient or the problems. In fact, she came fully prepare and in my case, she can even repeat my reasons of the visit - drug reaction from post-op infection and may / may not lead to my eye sight issues. Her examination is efficient and she gives advices after considering a much much bigger picture than just the eyes. In my case, she noted my post-op issue and suggested to delay my eye treatment until I felt better, but at the same time, she gave me a direct hotline to her calling for immediate help if I think my eyes deteriorated. Where can you get this type of thinking ahead and also thinking for the patient ? When finally I had my laser treatment, her speed and skill really put me at ease. From the way she worked with the machine, you can tell that she has complete control and full confidence which is as natural to her as breathing. You definitely can trust her.

All I can say is "WOW". What a bundle of energy and very personable but you'd better be on your game when you see her. She moves 100 mph and I respect that since specialists appointments have such a long wait. If it is not urgent, she follow up with appointments to monitor but I imagine she is as qiuick to deal with an urgent issue. Came away feeling that I was in very good hands indeed. Staff seem to enjoy working in a very busy, but well organized. clinic. If she had sat around with me for 20 minutes or so, someone really needing to see her would not have been able to for months, or I would have had to wait 3 months just to have my fears dispelled. Keep up the good work, for all of us!

If A Dr is looking at your eyes they need to have the drops put in ahead of time then wait for the drops to work. This takes time. Yes the place is fast paced. yes the phone contact and appointments is not "user friendly". The Dr is I appreciate what she has done for me and my progrssive diseas..

I had the same experience as another person's experience stated here. She spent less than 15 minutes examining my eye and talking to me about my problem after dilating my pupils while sitting in the lobby. She then rattled off an account of the session on a tape recorder for about 90 seconds or less to give to her secretary. She was all smiles and seemed to celebrate being able to rush patients through the office like objects on a car assembly line. Given that the government MSP system pays her $100 or more per patient visit, I estimate that she is billing the government system at a rate of about $600 to $1000 per hour in light of her ability to hurry patients through every session. In the end, I wasn't given enough information about my problem and told that my problem comes normally with aging. Her info/opinion was different to that given by another more experienced senior ophthalmologist who I had seen one week earlier. It seems like you have to visit a number of ophthalmologists to get the correct medical assessment (i.e. when you get consistent info).

Be prepared to be kept waiting up to 2 hours before they see you. Doctor good but not worth the frustration.

She is a brilliant eye surgeon - she gave me my eyesight back! VERY BUSY office but then with such a high quality doctor it is to be expected. She does not waste time, very fast and to the point and focused.

Fast but patient. Willing to listen and really good at explaining the situation. I have only seen her once but fully intend to keep this doctor as I think she is a gift. Although I have a serious condition, I left feeling really good about myself.
