If I could give less than one star I would. I was seen for over a year for a red eye, with a growth that Dr. Bell said was nothing to worry about. He also made glasses for me that I could never see correctly with, as I now know they were the wrong prescription. The worst part is that I just went to another Eye Doctor for my yearly checkup and found out that the growth which was "nothing to worry about" is a cancerous tumor! I saw him two years ago when this was small...I would NOT recommend
