Ratings for Dr. J. Francois A. Theriault
need a new technician... Doctor is excellent, but one of the staff is rude and unhelpful. Started testing me (late) for something they had already tested for 2 years ago. Got somewhat angry when I pointed this out, and began the correct tests. I do not trust her results, and there was no followup from the office as to the results.
Had tests done by technician who told me to hit button anyway if I wasn't sure. She didn't seem to be very efficient. Never saw Doctor for results just got a phone call saying they would re-test in a year. No explanation. Very blunt and uncaring. Not very professional. I'll be asking for another referral.
Dr Theriault is a VERY professional, extremely knowledgeable, caring physician. He takes the time to explain what is going on with your eye (in my case, I have only one eye and that eye has many problems). I thank Dr Theriault every day for preserving the vision I have. He is absolutely the BEST!
Dr. Theriault is very personable, takes time to explain things and made me feel quite at ease. The surgeries (two lens replacements) made a world of difference for me! In hindsight however, I would have probably gone with the mono vision (one lens for seeing up close, one for distance) instead of both for distance. I still need to reach for glasses (readers) to see up close. This is really annoying when doing things that require repeated focussing close and far. I am probably young for his usual clientelle and active (mtn & road biking ect.) so his advise was probably skewed toward older folks. My suggestion would be to try wearing a single contact lens for a few months to experience monovision before taking the docs's advice to stay with stereo vision and keeping a pair of readers nearby, especially if you are still very active.
Dr. Theriault is a wonderful opthamologist, he came to the hospital to see me. The only negative experience is with his receptionist at his office, I have never come across such a rude woman in my life. It has been over a year dealing with the bad attitude on the phone and it's terrible. the one gal on the phone, you know who you are, needs a huge attitude adjustment or a different job not dealing with the public. Very disappointing.
I waited months for an appointment then just saw the technician. The doctor was supposed to call me back after he reviewed my results. Almost a month later I am still waiting. Called his office and was told he had not looked at my file yet. Now I have to go pay again to get another referral from an eye doctor so I can get treatment. Dr. Theriault is obviously too busy with his office renovations to treat patients. Remember patients, the people who PAY for your office renovations and life style.?????
