Ratings for Dr. William J. Ference
Get another opinion after you see dr ference. Dr ference looks for trouble. If you do have any issues he overtreats it. If you research it he makes money off people's insurance. He misdiagnosis I went to another doctor who said I had very healthy eyes. If I had followed his treatments he would have made matters worse for me I found that he stretches out your visits so you are practically living in his office. If you question or disagree with him he gets nasty. He's nasty with his staff too and I've seen his staff cry - very uncomfortable atmosphere. He insists on taking unnessary tests - that's where he makes his money whstever you do if you decide to go to him GET a second opinion IF you are already going to him GET a second opinion elsewhere ! I would not recommend dr ference to my worst enemy
I don't remember how much I paid, but it was reasonable. Dr. Ference and his Staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Dr. Ference is very thorough and you know you have received the best possible eye care during your visit. He has invested in very sophisticated equipment to help him diagnose eye disease risks and I'm glad he's younger than me because I wouldn't want to have to go to any other Optometrist! L.A.
Dr only insists on prescribing one brand of contact lenses. I told him repeatedly that my eyes do not feel great with the house lenses and I would like to try other brands. He will not offer other brands or samples to bring home like other eye drs I have been to. My kids eye dr gives my daughter 3 brands to try on at home and see what works and feels the best. He does not bend and is very set in his ways. I go elsewhere now and I a now wear affordable and comfortable contacts!!! YAY!
I wen to this doctor because my current perscription was not working. Before he even checked my eyes, he assumed I needed progressive lens. I tried to resolve the issue with them and they were very nice about resolving the glasses that I couldn't see out of. Unfortunately, the second pair are not workign either. Now I am spending more money to get a second opinion. All I want is to see. The last time I called to explain the glasses were still not working, they made it seem like it was my fault because I answered all their questions. PROBLEM: If a eye doctor assumes there are issues with your eyes (i.e., progressive glasses) before they exam your eyes, the exam will not be correct.
First they missed my appointment because they forgot to put it in the computer. Then after a complete run around they called and asked me not to come back, then tried to spin it as a misunderstanding when I said I was going to escalate this issue. Completly unprofessional rude people. Do not go here it is a waste of time and money.
