in Rutledge, Tn |
Dr Lindsey is great, but the scheduling is the worst.. We had an appt and was there for 2 hours and never got to see the Dr. So we left. 6 nurses were there and setting around and we ask said 8 in front of u and nothing we can do. 2. Waiting rooms was full. Ridiculous

Dr Lindsey was wonderful from the first day I went to his office for a check-up. He explained to me the condition of my eyes due to cataracts. After my surgery, he was very supportive, and listened to all questions. How did the surgery help me? It was like opening up a dirty window and letting the sunshine in. Now, all I need is reading glasses. I also liked it when he said, Lets pray for everything to go well. That is something you don't often hear.
