I was not comfortable with the eye high pressure test and my feelings were respected.At the end of the examination, I asked for a drink of water, I was standing in the hall with my walker. The nurse told me to sit down while she got me one. I told her that I would not sit down, that was respected.

He's very short and I asked if he will give me discharge instructions so that I know what is my diagnosis -he said no and he just write down the diagnosis in a piece of sticky note. My visit was really quick,the medical assistant or who ever took my vitals or check my eyes was the one who asked a lot If questions which I think was very Inappropriate because she seems to suggest a lot of things about my eye problem like Its because Of your fake eyelashes that's causing this Irritation. And Dr Jones did not believe me when I said that the redness or the lump is painful. He's not the one who has the eye problem besides he's an eye doctor he should know this. He just took one look on the scope and that's it didn't touch my face on his tender it is and irritated and swollen.

Had cataract surgery both eyes. On second surgery they did not have the replacement lens & called me to cancel 1 hour before I was to arrive.

The woman who did all the beginning eye tests was wonderful. Personal and enjoyable. The Dr barely spent any time with me. He did the necessary exam and told me the findings. However he did not make an effort to make me feel welcome and connected with him. I would have thought as a new patient he would have spent a few minutes getting to know me and make a personal connection.

The Doctor and Clerk had excellent people skills with listening and providing personal information. Both were professional and personable. I'm an Organizational Development Consultant and I usually train people in this. So you have the right people in the right place. Your front desk people are also great because they are patient, thorough and good listeners.

The doctor never looked at me or engaged with me. He rushed the visit and didn't explain what e found from the exam. He said I could access the information/results of the exam in the after visit summary from the Legacy online portal and simply gave me a prescription for glasses and a follow up appointment for another doctor. When I read the Info online the next day I didn't understand the medical terms or what they implied. I called the office and asked for the doctor to call me to explain but he hasn't.

I did not actually see the doctor. His assistant saw me and made the decision not to continue with the blocked artery I have. He seemed to contradict the ultrasound I had and the decision for me to see a specialist. I feel lost about this now.

Dr Eric Jones was somewhat aloof, I'm guessing because he was busy. I waited about 45 min to get into see the tech and there were 2 other patients waiting to see him at the same time

I checked in for my appointment about 5 minutes early. I was told that I had to go upstairs for eye testing which I did not schedule nor did I agree to have. I was told that Dr. Jones would see me anyway. I waited for my appointment and was unable to wait any longer as I additional appointments and commitments that I had to go to. Plus, I had my young granddaughter with me and no one should expect to wait for what seems like an eternity. Talk about customer disservice. I usually have a longish waiting time to actually see the doctor but this is just ridiculous. As a matter of fact, two patients were called back to exam room and not one of them came out while I was there. My guess is that Dr. Jones was not even in the office. And, if he was, how could he get so far behind at the start of the day. If he cannot match the appointment times, then the appointments should be given more time. In the end, I have decided to divorce Dr. Jones and have since found a new ophthalmologist.

Good eye doc, but his cataract surgery is not available for indefinite period. Very disappointing.

Long wait time before being roomed which was explained by emergent add-ons. I appreciate the fact that emergencies are worked in. My suggestion: call patients and give them a new check-in time. Every half hour I am sitting idle in your waiting room means I have to work longer at my job to make up for missed time. Dr. Jones seems to be scheduling fairly far out, and this seems to be a problem with a great many providers these days. I have no suggestions how this could be improved. Hire an additional provider?Overall, my experience has been a good one, and I plan to see Dr. Jones again in the future.

Dr. Jones is very thorough in his exam of your eyes and if ordering meds to help, he always has you coming back in 6 weeks to check to see if your eyes are responding to the treatment.

The doctor was double booked during my appointment time and I was not informed. I was taken back 25 minutes after my appointment time and missed work. It would have been better to call me earlier that day and inform me that the provider would be running behind so I didn't have to miss as much work or I could reschedule. The staff didn't apologize or Inform me of his double book at check in nor did they apologize for running late once in the exam room. I was treated well and examed thoroughly but it was very poor customer service.

He wasn't sure if I needed to be operated he wasn't a specialist in glaucoma and the drive from [location removed] wasn't worth it. He didn't look over my medication.

I felt like I was on a conveyor belt. Just quick fast and in a hurry. Dr Jones didn't ask me what my concerns were. He did ask me if I was taking any vitamins for my eyes. I said I wasn't, he didn't recommend that I should or what vitamin to take. This visit was to establish care. [removed for patient privacy]. I've had several problems with my eyes and am naturally concerned. I felt like I was intruding on his time. I know there were several patients in the waiting room. I'm plannng to ask my PCP for a referral to another ophthalmologist suggested by a close friend.

Dr Jones is an extremely competent ophthalmologist. I had an eye problem that came up suddenly & I was able to get in the same day for him to look at it. I felt that he was very thorough in examining my eye. His assistants are also extremely competent.

No privacy in waiting area. Receptionist uses voice magnification requesting personal info. Dr snd asst did not engage in any conversation with me. Very impersonal, abrupt. No confidence. Did not feel I had an accurate eye reading. Did nothing to address concerns. Will not go back or recommend.

The doctor was great but forgot to tell me the answer to the reason I was referred to him.I worked front and back office In the medical field at OHSU for 17 years, and very successfully. I am very concerned about the tech that did the initial eye exams before I saw the doctor for my cataracts that day. Due to the requirement of wearing masks, the lenses on the equipment kept fogging up during that part of the examination. I repeatedly told her I couldn't see the screens due to the lenses fogging up. She got frustrated and told me I better try harder or they wouldn't be able to do the examination. This was highly inappropriate. She did not offer a solution. Instead, her response triggered the thought that to please her, I'd have to fake my answers or not get an exam. I suggest additional training for this person.
