I had retinal detachment in both eyes and Dr. Neuwelt treated me well and has been very nice. I was able to reach her through mychart messages or phone to the office for any questions I have. I feel that I have received very good care.

I have nothing but praise for my care provider -- Dr. Neuwelt and the clinical staff is excellent. But WOULD NOT recommend anyone use UCSF Ophthalmology because of difficulties communicating with the office and long waits.

I have never met such an amazing doctor who genuine show that she cares about her patients. I really appreciate all she has done for my son and has been the best blessing we have received and just how well she took care of my son means sooo much to me. I feel my son was so lucky to her as his doctor. She definitely is one of a kind doctor. Blessed to be in her care.

Some of the vocabulary might be confusing to me as I don't know what "Add timolol OS BID" means but I know how often to take it! <3

Kinda not sure whether I am supposed to follow up. I do know that I am supposed to contact the office as and if incidents come up that I need addressed urgently (which happen regularly).
