Review for Dr. Giamos

Entire staff was attentive and happy to explain what was happening during the exams. Wld have liked a little more info re cataract surgery @ this appt but understand that I need to wait until I have an eval by a retinal expert. Overall, an interesting experience.

Review for Dr. Giamos

I have been seeing Dr.Lavigne for almost 10 years. He is the kindest, honest Doctor I have ever met. His bed side manner is great and he is a wonderful, caring provider. I will be devastated when he retires!
