Provider Reviews

Waited in a room for 45 minutes before being seen. Seemed hurried and uninterested. Did not help me with my eye issue. I had surgery with another Optometrist to correct the problem that Killian, " just doesn't see."

I trust Dr. Vo with my life. So far with his help and knowledge, I have stayed off of dialysis. He tells you the truth, the hard facts which I appreciate.

Review for Dr. Vo

Dr. Hornbuckle was very nice and easy to talk to and ready to answer questions about the procedure. She didn’t seem rushed or impatient with all my questions before or after the surgery. I really had nothing but good vibes about Dr. Hornbuckle. Glad to have her for my surgeon.

Dr Budde has been amazing for my foster kid. She is an advocate for her best interests and definitely treats the whole kid, not just a symptoms. My foster kiddo totally trusts her.
