Dr. Tere Vieves treats my sister for optic neuritis who was recently diagnosed with recurring relapsing multiple sclerosis. I attend every appointment with her so I know personally what her treatment is. When my sister first saw Dr. Vieves she had lost vision in her left eye completely. Dr. Vieves ran numerous tests and began her treatment. Her right eye began experiencing the same problems but Dr. Vieves has managed to save her eyesight in the right eye and some eye sight has returned in the left eye. We have had to call Dr. Vieves numerous times during times when her eyes began experiencing more problems and each and every time Dr. Vieves saw us the same day or the very next day without hesitation. The wait times are not that long considering she is the only doctor in her office and she is the best in her field. I recommend to anyone who wants the best doctor for their eyes to contact Dr. Vieves.
I wish I could give Dr. Vives fewer stars. She was my nightmare. She misread a simple lab result and told my wife that she had a serious neurological disease that the labs actually said I did not have. In addition to the thousands of dollars her mistake cost us and the countless hours we spent thinking my wife was going to go blind or die in the next few years, when her mistake was pointed out to her, Dr. Vives did not accept that she made a mistake delaying resolution of the situation. Still to this day, Dr. Vives shows no contrition about her mistake and claims the lab made a mistake. If Dr. Vives was unclear of the results or confused by the results, she should have checked with the lab before telling her patient. In reality, it appears Dr. Vives glanced at the labs, didn't bother to read the other 3 pages which clearly said the patient was negative for this disease, and conveyed a wrong result. Our experience with her indicated a reckless, unprofessional, and honestly, incompetent doctor. And to make matters worse, we had to sit in the waiting room for over an hour every time I saw her. AVOID.
