Ratings for Dr. E.P. Skochylas
Temperamental. Rude at times. Barking orders at you like you are his subject. Shocking manners. Don't answer questions or return phone calls. Dishonest. Only after money. His training is in eyes but needs to make ends meet (only makes half a million a year, what a poor guy) by doing cosmetic procedures for spoiled rich women (botox injections).
Having 2 corneal transplants, catarac surgery and now going thru a retina detachment with a very unhappy cornea. Dr. S is amazing, very patient, understanding, always on time or early. Getting me in for weekly appoinments with very little notice. Offering suggestions & trying to find the best solution. I would not trust my sight with anyone else.
After waiting an extra 1 1/2hrs for my appt. Rudest man I have ever had the misfortune to ever meet came into the room, I had been dumped into. And yes I mean dumped, cause that's how I felt. He asked why I was there and I told him I couldn't see. He asked me why? What a dumb question. How would I know why? That's why I came to him. I told him I didn't know and he never looked at me he wrote on papers and not once in the 15 min with me did he examine my eyes. But he did tell me that there was nothing wrong with my eyes once he found out that I would be paying by my disability fund. It was then that the appt was immediately over. Abruptly and rudely. I asked him if I could bring my husband in so he could hear what he had just said and said, 'WHAT'S the point, just go home don't bother. After I left I cried for and hour over the way I mistreated. I would wish this on no one. I had to find an optomotrist, He found a stigmatism. I had problems.
Based on reviews I had read I was not certain what to expect from my appointment. I was totally impressed by Doctor Skochylas. I went to the office for an initial consultation. I had a number of specific questions after his diagnosis. He was very professional and explained everything to my satisfaction. He performed a minor surgical procedure for me immediately. He was very skillful in administering the local anesthetic and performing the surgery. The whole experience exceeded my every expectation. I would highly recommend Doctor Skochylas.
I wondered if this doctor was actually still in business and shocked to see the last post. I WAS a patient and the last time there for a diabetic exam he was so openly hostile to an elderly woman at the front desk she started to cry. He left her standing there by herself and walked away. I spent many an hour waiting in his office for routine exams and he was always late, his manner always abrupt without apology. I found him strange and difficult to understand - he mumbled, wouldn't look directly at me and seemed agitated when I asked questions. I tolerated it because there was such a long wait to see other eye specialists but I found a much better doctor. I would NEVER go back to this doctor. And he always used the word "difficulties" in our appointments --- I wouldn't be surprised if he posted the last comment himself.
