Mahalo for choosing Dr. Drouilhet for your retinal eye care.  The nature of a retinal eye evaluation can be a lengthy process.  Although we do our best to keep exam and waiting times to a minimum, we ask that you allow adequate time for your appointment.  Please keep the following in mind when you schedule your appointment:

  • A typical retinal exam can take 1 – 4 hours due to dilation, findings and additional tests.
  • Urgent/emergent patients are seen without an appointment due to their urgent nature, which could cause delays for patients with scheduled appointments.  However, patients who come to our office without an appointment may have to wait to be examined until patients with scheduled appointments have been seen.
  • Many patients receive testing or procedures that increases the length of their appointment.

If you cannot keep your scheduled appointment, please call the office as soon as possible so we can free your time for another patient.  If you are going to be late, please call us and we will do our best to re-schedule you as soon as possible.

Mahalo for your cooperation and understanding.
