This practice is nothing like it use to be!!! Stay far away from here. This practice does not care about the health of your eye, only wants your money and does nothing for your eyes. BEWARE!!!

Run don't walk away from this clinic.. Accidentally put white out in my eyes one morning when reaching for my eye drops. Called them immediately to be seen and they said wouldn't.because I had a $39 bill that had they had been mailing to an incorrect address.. their mistake..and never tried to reach me by phone. I've been a patient there for over 3 years. They were more concerned about the $39 then me perhaps going bblin! Went next day paid bill still wouldn't see me gave referral. Awful
