This was my first visit to see Dr Podoll. He seemed like a nice man with other things on his mind. I didn't get the feeling that he had even read the extensive testing results the assistant did right before I saw him. He didn't give me any suggestions for treating my dry eyes or improving the mucus in my eyes. He didn't suggest a time line or give me an idea of how long I should wait to have cataract surgery. He said whenever it became too annoying. He was in the room 4-6 minutes. I was hoping for more information.
