Yrs. ago at UNC I had a corneal transplant because of which I need an ophthalmologist close to my current address in SC. I diligently researched for a doctor based on site of her/his medical university, internship, and residency. I chose Dr. Tomlinson as the best the Myrtle Beach/Pawleys Island/Conway area. In the 7 yrs. I have been his patient, Dr. Tomlinson has proven me to be correct.

Antiquated office. No computers, EMR, old equipment in exam rooms. Limited scheduling times, am only. Charged for refraction in error then charged to have a refund check sent. Would not accept an emergent visit for pain and red eye, stating too busy, go to emergency room.
