Review for Dr. Padda

Everyone at his clinic is amazing and I am really happy that he reassured me that everything was going to be ok. I was nervous and worried that I could possibly lose my vision somehow. Thank you!!

Review for Dr. Gammack

From start to finish, a very pleasant experience. The staff is friendly, efficient and reassuring. Dr. Compton takes the time to listen, answers questions and spends an appropriate amount of time to put the patient at ease. Very solicitous.
