Not only was Tran patronizing to me throughout the appointment, but he was overly condescending to both me, my family, and my family doctor. During the entire appointment, it seemed as if Tran s sole purpose was to act superior and belittle me in any way possible.
I have a congenital eye syndrome, and, not fully aware of what exactly this syndrome was at the time, I decided to ask Tran for his advice. Without hesitation, Tran believed that I had a lazy eye. Clearly, even without going through the process of becoming an optometrist, anyone would know that this isn t the case. However, Tran was steadfast and confident in his statement. After telling him that both my family and family doctor said that it was not a lazy eye, Tran began to belittle them and, once again, make himself look superior. The next week I scheduled an appointment with an ophthalmologist who diagnosed me with Duanes Type II, a syndrome completely different than lazy eye in its origin, signs and symptoms. Tran obviously did not have the intelligence and academic rigor to support such false claims.
If I could give him zero stars, I would. I have never been talked down to and belittled by anyone else more than I was with Tran. In addition, as an adult-to-adult and ""doctor""-to-patient, he began to argue with me, being both disrespectful and unethical. In other words, he shouldn t be an optometrist. He lacks both the academic knowledge and communication skills that are needed in such a profession.
