    I felt that the doctor did not pay attention to what's been done prior to seeing her (with referring providers). Dr. Franklin was trying to blame my behavior for the symptoms. (When the other doctor has already ruled them out - she would have known that if she paid attention to the charts). Dr. Franklin is making me repeat the same treatment routine I've completed again (to rule things out) - wasting my time.

      I waited 2 years to make this appointment because my experience last time I had an eye exam was not good when I went elsewhere. The contrast in the two experiences was quite noticeable.

      First opthamologist at UK that really listened and didn't make quick assumptions about care based on my age. Also clear about what she was finding without me having to ask. She even told me what my vision is (20/25). Believe it or not, that information usually isn't shared without the need for me to ask. I have much confidence in her abilities.
