Patient Comments (4)
in Surprise, Arizona |
I was on a cruise ship when my vision changed. We docked in Long Beach on a Saturday. Instead of an ER, a friend's optometrist called Dr. Eifrig. He examined my eye and said it wasn’t an emergency but needed follow-up in my hometown. He provided a referral and texted me the next day, a Sunday, to say the Phoenix office would be calling me. Dr. Eifrig gave an out-of-town stranger continuity of care, empathy and patience amidst an abundance of questions. This is a talented physician who cares.

I have been seeing Dr. Eifrig for almost five years now for chronic uveitis. He is one of the kindest and wise doctors I have ever been to. He listens to me and explains things well. He is also very brilliant at what he does. He has helped me with a rare, chronic condition. I trust him totally. His staff is also great.
