Patient Comments (3)
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Coburn is an excellent doctor. I have a relatively rare condition with my eye, which another doc misdiagnosed and a second one diagnosed but didn't treat properly. Dr. Coburn recognized the problem and has treated very successfully while also educating us. She printed out info from the American Academy of Ophthalmology for me which was very reassuring. She is warm, caring and amazing.
