Worst doctor ever! Misdiagnosed me with an epidemic eye disease! I went to Dr. Pickering Terri’s office because my eyes were mildly bothering me for weeks and I thought it might have been more than contact irritation.
First optometrist examined me and said my eyes were a little red and I should rest them and not wear contacts for a few days.
For a second opinion she brought in Terri Pickering.
This doctor immediately freaked out and told me I had something called EKC, without telling me what that meant.
First she made me tell her everything I touched in the waiting room so they could sterilize it then told me I should follow up with a cornea specialist to make sure I didn’t have any scarring.
Terri basically shooed me out the door, told me I couldn’t go into work for a week, and sent me off with a “prescription.”
It was all I could do not to burst into tears right then. Later I found out that 1) EKC clears up on its own 2) the expensive steroid drops she said I “needed” were only to help inflammation and are not a cure for the conjunctivitis 3) She was wrong all along!
I never had it said my cornea specialist (a real doctor in my opinion).
Of course I sent a fire alarm to all my roommates and coworkers, threw out all my good makeup, and practically sanitized and washed my whole apartment.
Bad doctor with bad medical judgement. AVOID!
