      Dr. Prescott did my cataract surgery on my right eye. I have had problems since the surgery. I have been back six times and the problem still exists. On my last visit I waited a long time to be seen. Other patients who arrived after me were seen first. When I questioned this Dr. Prescott went off on me. Very unprofesdional!! Thecofficecstaff was great however

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
