Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Affleck "I believe medicine is a partnership between doctor and patient. Much of my job is educating people as to what their condition is, and their treatment options. The ultimate decision on what treatment is done is up to the patient. I enjoy cataract surgery, tear duct surgery, and especially pediatric surgery - I find it very rewarding to straighten eyes on kids."

The dr was great.... his entire staff on the other hand was rude, short not good with children at all. Rather then telling us about their deposit policy prior to the hour trip it took me to get there, she very rudely refused to even fit my child for glasses. This is the second time we had a...more
