I am a 61 years of age male that is retired. I have always found it hard to trust anyone with my sight other then reading glasses. I noticed my world was starting to dim, so I did a lot of research and picked Dr. Threlkeld and did I pick right. She explained that I needed cataract surgery in both eyes. At first I was frightened but Doc sat down with me and explained step by step what would be done. I agreed to have both eyes done. She had great bed side manner before and after the surgery. She

Dr. Threlkeld is very efficient and caring personable doctor. I am very satisfied and happy with the outcome of my cataract surgery done by Dr Threlkeld. She spends time to discuss any concerns and provides explanations in detail. She follows up after surgery, very meticulous in examining and gives full attention to the patient. I would highly recommend Dr Threlkeld to any one needed cataract surgery. management of glaucoma and eye diseases in general.
Tucker, GA |
Dr. Threlkeld is an excellent glaucoma specialist but she is not a glaucoma surgent. She is a cataract surgent. These are two different things. Before agreeing to allow her or anyone else to perform an iridoctomy please research to make sure they are trained in glaucoma surgery. My only complaint is that I did not do my research and now I am headed to a surgent to have him do what threlkeld tried to do. Be honest about what you can do and people will return. SMH.. beware please and pray.

Dr. Threlkeld is one of the most caring doctors that I have met. She is very knowledgeable, skilled and she has a gentle way with her patients. I would highly recommend her.
Denver, CO |
Dr. Threlkeld patiently explained the treatment plans for my particular type of glaucoma, and laid out a pathway for treatment that has been excellent.
Atlanta, GA |
Professional, she took plenty of time with me to explain questions. Great follow up. I was very pleased. I never felt rushed or pressured as I had been in other offices. (Optometrist offices). I had cataract surgery on both eyes and the outcome was beyond my expectations. I strongly recommend her and her staff.
in Atlanta, GA |
I feel very grateful that Dr. Threlkeld saw me on a moments notice for an eye issue that was quite troubling and had persisted for quite some time. Though it was the first time she saw me, she treated me like a long term patient and gave me a thorough exam to pinpoint the root of my problem. I was very happy with my experience both with Dr. Threlkeld and the kind & professional ladies in her office. I will be back.
in Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Threlkeld was very attentive and extremely knowledgeable about the procedure I was about to have. She explained in detail the operation that I had come to see her about. A very gentle and kind person, that makes you feel secure and comfortable in her office and the operating room. The nurses at the outpatient facility adore her and have nothing but compliments about her kindness, professional, and surgical excellence. I feel that I was blessed and fortunate to have had her as my doctor.
in Atlanta, GA |
Simple….Dr. Threlkeld is the best, above all expectations. On my first visit after examination, she told me things about my eyes that I questioned other Ophthalmologists about and never received answers, then forgot about! She clearly explains everything in depth…pictures and all. Dr. Threlkeld then maps out a course of treatment (in writing), and again with ways to take care of my eyes like no other Dr. mentioned (and I have gone to several recently that I was not happy with). I went back f

I have been a patient of Dr. Threlkeld for years and I trust her more that I have ever trusted any Doctor. You are not just a number to her but a patient with a name. The staff at this office is friendly, professional and courteous.
in Atlanta GA |
I have been a patient of Dr. Threlkeld for 5 years since being diagnoised with Glaucoma. I consider her to be the BEST in her field. She is the ONLY doctor I see for eyecare. She is very conservative in treatment & only recommends surgery when needed. She takes all the time in the world with you as a patient & completely puts you at ease about your eye needs & care. I recently had cataract surgery in both eyes & I now see without glasses. EXCELLENT STAFF! SHE is the BEST CHOICE for eyecare!!
