Ratings for Dr. Dan Filaferro
His staff was really good. His bedside manner is terrible. He is REALLY condescending and rude. Leave a 3 hour window for your appointment even though he will only spend 45 seconds with you. Was referred to another doc after seeing him 4 times for a problem he couldn't fix. Other doc fixed it immediately.
I was nervous to see Dr Filaferro after reading these reviews and am happy to report that he is kind, informative and caring. I saw him after my Optometrist diagnosed me with PVD in my right eye. He did not refer me to an ophthalmologist so I went to my family doctor to refer me - just to get a second opinion. As it turns out I have PVD in my other eye and a different issue in the right eye. Dr. Filaferro suggested I come back in 3 months to assess whether the issue has subsided. I was very happy with the staff, the short wait time and how organized they are. He may seem short to people because he has an immense number of patients waiting to see him - we were all moved through the various stages of testing quickly and efficiently.
I have been to this ophthalmologist 5 times now... He is very brisk, he comes in, gets the job done and leaves. I personally like this as I do not want to spend all day at the doctors, he has taken the time to answer any questions I have. The wait is a little long to get in, but I find that with alot of doctors.
Was extremely disappointed with him. This was my first visit with him during which time he hardly examined by eyes, not did he take the time to explain thing to me or answer all my questions. Very arrogant attitude. Like he couldn't get me out of his office fast enough. Certainly would not recommend him, nor will I go back to him. I'm a senior and have seen a fair share of doctors during my time and I must say that this guy was the worst doctor I have ever had any dealings with.
HORRIBLE... I literally left his office crying because of how rude he was with me; he said "there was nothing he could do for me", even though I had pea sized lumps under my eyelids, in which he diagnosed, but couldn't fix apparently. I quickly got referred to someone else, a dermatologist in fact, who fixed my eye problem.
Dr. Filaferro told me what was wrong with my eye when regular eye doctors/examiners downplayed the severity of what the problem was. He is an excellent health professional - fast, but thorough diagnosis. When I checked these rating before going to him I was concerned - but now I think many of these ratings are too low and too critical.
