Glaucoma and Neuro-Ophthalmology,
Troy Close is a rare and valued partner when designing my medical care. His sensitivity, knowledge and creativity are the reasons he is such a great resource.

Dr.Close is excellent and always conducts a thorough exam and explanation of what he is doing.
So nice of the dictor. I jigjly recommend him to other patients for his outstanding performance
This doctor was not my regular ophthalmologist. I saw him because I had a problem and my regular doctor was not available until April, which was disappointing. So this doctor didn't know me, but he kept telling me to use North Shore Connect to communicate with my other doctor. I don't know how North Shore Connect can be helpful when I have problems that have to be seen to be diagnosed. I felt like maybe there was a push to not make as many appointments with your doctors, but instead use your online system which is convenient, but does not substitute for actually being examined by a doctor particularly when it involves the eyes.
I don't know if this was because I had an early-morning appointment, but it seemed that Dr. Close was less rushed than in the previous years. It is difficult getting an appointment with him - the wait time is 2-3 months. He is worth the wait, though.
Essentially, I did not think he took my concerns seriously. He was professionally competent and I don't doubt the technical test results. But there was no serious addressing of my increasing problems with fuzzy vision, except to say I might have dryness of the eyes. He was perfunctory: kind but glib and in a hurry.
Already recommended Dr. Close to my Mom. We are both so happy that the health of our vision is taken care of by Dr. Close:).
