Personal Interests

My children are all grown, so my wife and I are enjoying our home and neighborhood, reading, hiking, spending time with our friends and making time to visit our children.

PHILOSOPHY OF CARE

Neuro-ophthalmology is the field of medicine that bridges neurology and ophthalmology. I see patients whose visual symptoms are or may be due to neurologic problems. Many patients with multiple sclerosis have vision problems, so a big part of my practice is dedicated to helping them understand what is causing their vision problem and what can be done to address it. I also have a special interest in diagnosis and treatment of neurologic vestibular disorders. Patients with neurologic vestibular disorders have vertigo, dizziness and imbalance. They frequently have seen multiple providers before coming to me for an explanation of their symptoms. My goal is to diagnose and treat the condition so people feel and function better.

Listened, asked appreciate questions, requested my feedback as to forward action, most respectful. Greatly appreciated his taking time to get the full picture.

Dr. May hit the nail on the head and confirmed that my poorer eyesight was not abnormal, considering my MS condition. He happily confirmed that the MS and damage to optic nerves was normal, and that the stronger prescription had more to do with aging than MS further damage. I was pleased with this assessment.

All good. The patience of staff and the time that is taken to check my son's vision and get his cooperation for eye tests is commendable, even if it doesn't work that day. This doctor always well explains his observations and considerations for my son's condition and treatment, is patient, kind and respects my questions and our circumstance. I feel comfortable sharing information with this doctor and considering his advice. I very much appreciate his patience, understanding and treatment of my son who is developmentally disabled and with considerable anxiety and may be resistant or slow to respond.

Lack of response to referral & failure to return calls!!! Appointment process completely unsatisfactory. Was told (by machine) not to call back for at least 2 weeks.

I have no idea what a Nuero opthamaligist is. This is after 3 visits with no results. After the [...] visit he announced there was no reason to come back to see him anymore. He told me he was referring me to [...] for glasses. If I didn"t hear from them by [...] to call him. When your ver polite secretary returned my call she said the referral went in on Wed [...] IN SEATTLE. I made point to insure I could go to someplace near Sequim. I feel somebody is not paying attention.

[...] Dr. May came across as uncharacteristically impatient or rushed. Regardless, I continue to have full confidence in his ability to guide me with my medical issues.
