My best friend (since I was 10 years old) went to a surgeon where she lives in another state to have cataract surgery. She has astigmatism and had cataracts in both eyes. The surgeon decided to operate on the worse eye first.
Their communication did not go well from the start. When my friend asked him to clarify a statement during that first office visit, he snapped at her and said, “I already told you that!” She stood her ground and explained that she did not understand the medical terms he used. He reluctantly repeated in simpler terms what he had said.
