    I went to him because he was covered by my insurance. He was great with helping me with my dry eyes but in regards to glasses I was given the wrong prescription. I had moved here and my old dr said I had astigmatism and they said I did not. I got new insurance and the dr I just saw told me I did have astigmatism in my eye. I have lived with bad glasses because it can only be done once a year.

    Dr. Kootman is an excellent doctor. He showed a genuine concern for my general health and well being. He is understanding and straight forward. Dr. Kootman listened and answered all my questions and concerns. Explaining the cataract procedure thoroughly put me at ease. Must also compliment his friendly and professional staff.
