Than a short answer to your question is no I would not like that much. I think I've given my perspective enough, so I'm not going to beat a dead horse. I think anyone interested in this thread has heard enough to satisfy questions they might have, so I'm checking out of this one. Hope I was helpful. I regret that you feel I was less than truthful.
How much "real" doctor work do you do in your setting? I'm talking besides doing the spin and grin.
For reference I have a growing glaucoma base and have a GDx, visual field, retinal camera etc.
Our office routinely sees and gets referred headache cases, diabetics, Vision Therapy, red eyes, and other eye disease.
Do you actually use your training and treat these people or refer them all out?
Personally, I would die do refractions all day. All our patients get dilated.
