I have been a patient of St. Lukes for several years. I have always felt the staff was competent and efficient. Today I was released from retina surgery performed 6 weeks ago and my vision is fine. I do however need to let people know that you appointment time really is for St. Lukes retina centers benefit not yours since you may experience what I did today. I had a 7:05 appointment for a final followup. I was taken back by a tech at 7:15 to have my vision check and my eyes dilated. I was told that I was the second patient of the day. At 8:30 I still hadn't been seen by my doctor and no one communicated with me to let me know what was going on. I went to the front desk to inform them I was leaving and the receptionist called to the back only to speak to someone who was indifferent to me leaving. I then spoke to a patient advocate who was very nice and she convinced me to let her get me right in to the doctor. She took me back upstairs and they told us they were waiting for us only to find out we had to wait for another ten minutes. The doctor apologized and said he was caught up in traffic and stated" I am human too you know". This wasn't a wonderful experience and I can only assume all the other patients after me were waiting an extrodinary amount of time without anyone informing them either.

I have keratoconus and had a cornea transplant done at St. Lukes in 1986. Very good outcome, still have better vision in that eye than in the other one. But more than the excellent medical care, I most appreciated the care shown for my psychological well being. The staff understands you will be scared having eye surgery and there is someone available to reassure and help you through it. During the actual procedure I had a nurse holding my hand the whole time. Follow-up care was very good and when I had a problem a couple of days after my surgery I was seen by one of the doctors immediately (it was on the weekend and he came straight from the golf course!) I strongly recommend St Lukes. Yes, there will be waiting, it's a very busy place. But I never felt I was being parked and forgotten.

St. Lukes is a nationally well-respected eye clinic. I have gone to St. Lukes for eye conditions ranging from a simple eye exam to clear lens replacement. The staff are professional and considerate. The only advice I offer is to bring reading material because your wait can be long, ranging from 15-20 minutes to 1 hour or more. However, when I have been in pain due to an eye injury, I was rushed in ahead of other patients so I appreciate the staff's ability to prioritize when the need dictates.

Message from St. Luke's Cataract & Laser Institute

St. Luke’s was founded in 1968 by Dr. James P. Gills. In 1974, Dr. Gills’ practice at St. Luke’s Cataract & Laser Institute became the first practice in the United States dedicated solely to cataract treatment through the use of intraocular lenses. St. Luke’s surgeons became widely regarded as authorities on the treatment of many types of eye conditions. Today, led by Pit Gills, MD, St. Luke’s continues the legacy of innovation, thoughtful adoption of new technologies and an unsurpassed commitment to patient care.
