He dialated my eyes, but did not give me a tinted cover to go over my glasses upon exit. When I w it’s the exam room and entered the hallway, as a result of the bright light I exited through the wrong door and experienced some pain from the bright lights in the hospital. Not to mention driving home was extremely difficult due to the bright light from the sun. I was disappointed at the lack of care provided during this visit from both the technician and the doctor.

I found him condescending, bossy, impatient, and a mediocre communicator. Also, he didn't check my eye pressure, dilate the pupils or examined the back of the eye. I felt uncomfortable and cannot trust his expertise. I would never consider going back for another visit with him again. Such a poor visit came as a surprise given the high standards of Northwestern Medicine and the department, an assessment based on my ongoing care with Dr. [ ].

Disclosures

Jirasan Sakulsom, OD reported no external professional relationships for calendar year 2021.

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
