Dr. Seedhom is very kind and has great bedside manner. He is listens to what you have to say and try to make sure you understand why he is giving the prescribed treatment. He has steadied my heart which is so unstable. Feel really comfortable with my care.

In 1982 I was in a car accident, hit by a drunk driver. I was 27 with a toddler and a baby. Dr. Bennett saved my life. I lost a lung in that accident and at the time, there were very few doctors who could have saved me. I cannot thank this man enough.

Dr. Argoff is a unique challenge and his intelligence does not give him a free pass to be rude, dismissive and unwelcoming as a medical professional. I have not crossed paths with one other medical professional, familiar with him, that does not agree. I think he gets it but, just doesn't care. Sad.

Great eye doctor, did both of my cataract surgeries. That said, the wait times and appointment difficulties are ridiculous (she has cancelled appointments on me several times). If you go here,plan on spending the entire morning or afternoon.
