Ratings for Dr. Peter Laansoo
I was actually referred to Dr Laansoo by my ophthalmologist and am now bringing my entire family to this clinic. What impressed me was the thoroughness, he has every machine for every part of the eye and takes just absolutely amazing records. I know exactly what stage my glaucoma is at and never feel like I'm being managed by "by my opinion" (if you know what I mean). I love that Doctor Laansoo makes me a part of my own care.
This physician missed my parent's glaucoma even though he had done peripheral field tests and examined them with clear reports of visual changes. A second opinion from another place revealed the issue. Vision had been lost in the interim. I was more than disappointed and could not recommend the clinic.
I have no real complaints about the staff, except that they way they run their buisness is a little shady. I have been going to him since he was a brand new optometrist and have paid on par to what i would pay in other clinics (around $85) at my last appt. they asked me if i wanted some special test done...BUT, neglected to inform me that it would cost an extra $50!!! I was shocked when i paid my bill and when i questioned why it was so much, they said it was because the machine was expensive and it was to cover the cost. WHAT!! They were so dismissive and really didn't care that i felt taken advantage of. AND, now i am even more annoyed that I have to change doctors!!
He's hard to get an appointment with but worth the wait. My mother has been told she has uncurable dry eyes as long as I can remember. Dr Laansoo didn't "pass the Buck" instead he started found a prescription treatment which worked. My Mom is doing great! I just wish we'd started with Doctor Laansoo sooner.
I had to write in here to thank for the experience at the clinic. I had had a bad experience at Lenscrafter's and my friend Cindy advised us to go to Dr. Laansoo. He and his staff Shamy helped my daughter Candace select her glasses, her knowlege and advice was great, and the selections of frames was quite extensive. We received exactly what we ordered in the time frame quoted to us. We most certainly will be returning for our future needs at Southgate Vision Care.
