Ratings for Dr. James B. Destephens


This individual's claims of corneal nerve damage is bogus. She claimed light sensitivity and irritated eyes which is a very common complaint that many folks have for which we have seen advertisements on TV to help. Remember 'Restasis' commercials. However, if she tells an eye doctor that her eyes were somehow damaged by the light then the eye doctor may well agree focusing more on how to treat this problem as opposed to its cause. A thorough review of the medical literature and discussions with two separate eye doctors revealed that such problems as she reported have never been reported in the medical literature and the two eye doctors that I consulted on this have never seen damage to the eyes based on the use of a light device provided that proper eye protection is worn about which she never denied. She had classical buyer's remorse and wished to have her remaining monies returned which I had no problem with. However, she chose to attack me personally in an attempt to intimidate me into returning her monies. The time and energies spent cleaning up her internet slander ate up the differential that would otherwise be offered. She contacted an attorney to sue me on this but the attorney refused because she was told that she had no case. And regarding the arrest that was mentioned. Indeed, it did happen based upon an accusation such as is the case here. But I was never charged with any crime and the arrest record was removed. The charge was made when this person was taken to a crisis stabilization unit at my direction after threatening suicide in the midst of a drunken stupor. This person subsequently spent 3 months in an inpatient alcohol rehabilitation facility and continues to struggle with alcohol dependence to this day. So be careful as to what one might believe based upon a mere allegation. Innocent until proven guilty and in this case no charges were ever filed and the arrest record detail was expunged.
