Dr Hudson is an excellent surgeon but their optical department is seriously lacking in quality. My glasses were made wrong three times so I thought it best to have the doctor check the prescription. They refused to give me an appointment with the doctor. After spending $244 plus the amount Medicare paid them for the glasses, the optician's advice was: "Try blinking your eyes".

Dr Hudson is a great doctor, and I have always had a positive experience with her & the clinical staff. It is very difficult however to get an appointment unless you are having an acute problem. I have been placed on hold for over 20 minutes while trying to make appointments.

My two cataract surgeries went very well and I was very pleased with the results.

I have seen Dr Hudson for quite a few years she has had to do sevaral procedures on my eyes and would never consider going to anyone else. She is a great Dr.

Staff and Doctor were fantastic from start to finish. My whole family now sees them.

Dr Hudson was very nice at the appointment. I had to have further testing done so I came back a month later. It has been over 6 weeks and after phone calls and a personal e-mail to the doctor, I still haven't gotten the test results. I think it is ridiculous that it takes almost 2 months and still no results. I won't be back to this office, that's for sure. They also charge you extra money to use a credit card which I have never had done at any other doctor's office.

Dr Hudson is an exceptional doctor in that she is 100% professional and at the same time very easy to talk to. She has an excellent personality and explained my procedure in language that i could easily understand.
