Review for Dr. Tagdiri

Overall, I was very pleased with the results and Dr. Laverson's willingness to help me in something that is not commonly done!

Review for Dr. Laverson

Went for a DM retina exam. Everything was explained. Dr found something else in my eye, he explained what it was and let me know that it was something not to worry about. The staff is great, helpful and knowledgeable.
