    How was your appointment with Dr. Bhakta?

    Jun 02, 2022
    Dr. Hettel Bhakta is outstanding and one of the best Optometrist I have ever had the pleasure of being a patient. She gave an antibiotic that didn't react with the responsiveness and I immediately called the emergency line that she gave me and called me back in 5 minutes. She took me immediately and met me at the office and we called my PCP to get permission for the most powerful antibiotic which worked and my eye healed. Multiple optometry machines in the office at then Lake Worth. The only negative is the office manager. I am not sure if she still works there however she is a major negative black eye because of her derogatory attitude. I don't remember her name however she was the office manager in April/May 2021. I would like that Dr. Hettel Bhakta accepted my insurance like other well-known optometry offices do.
