      I love Dr. Affleck, he has managed my condition for year so well. His office staff is kind and skilled. I can't believe how detailed they are in the optical department. Dr. Affleck personally takes you to a staff member in the optical and explains your needs, then the staff carefully select frames that are comfortable and measure your frames in all kinds of ways to make sure your vision is great. I work in the healthcare system and found those that complain the most what something for nothing.

      I don't know what Luke H is talking about! My wife and I both did the RESTOR lenses, we see 20/20 both near and far. Dr. Affleck did my surgery last spring and my wife last fall. Dr. Affleck did the dropless cataract surgery that saves us each about $400. We received paperwork at our pre-operative exam that explained the cost of everything. Maybe Luke does not no how to read. I know I would pay anything for good vision and that is what my wife and I got. Dr. Affleck, thank you!

      Dr. Affleck is amazing. He explained my problem like no one else. Then together we came up with a treatment plan that work! You could tell his staff knew what they were doing and liked each other. I had no surprise charges because I used a form they provided to call my insurance and ask the right questions. Affleck, MD Eye Care is the best in this area!

      I had to pay for lenses out of pocket for cataract surgery. I knew and was ready for that. The price I was quoted and PAID ahead of time changed afterward and I was charged more even though part of my bill THAT THEY SENT me showed the original price I was quoted. I'm pissed. It was a $400 dollar mistake. When I called them about it they were quite rude, it took them weeks to figure it out, and the resulting answe was that Dr Affleck is sure he told me the higher price and I was wrong. Liars!

      The main office person is rude and impersonal. The doctor is incompetent and thinks his service is golden.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Affleck's Care Philosophy

      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.
