Naples, FL |
I was treated very poorly by Dr. Avtar (Tom ) Ghuman during a laser procedure. As a result, I left upset & concerned regarding the health of my eye. Tracy, the Director of Insurance, contacted me to discuss my concerns. She did her best to rectify the situation, and I appreciate her efforts.
