I started experiencing symptoms of open-angle glaucoma 6 months ago, and Dr. Bigelow has been incredibly helpful and caring. He prescribed me medication to control the pressure in my eye, and follows up after every appointment. The symptoms have decreased since. Incredible doctor, would strongly recommend.

Dr. Bigelow is an incredible, incredible professional. My son has amblyopia, and I have taken him to Dr. Bigelow multiple times because he is genuinely caring and incredibly knowledgeable. We had been to multiple physicians before, but Dr. Bigelow is by far the best we have seen.

Dr Bigelow recently performed cateract surgery on my 83 year old mother. He was a great Doctor, professional, caring, and followed up after surgery with a call to address any possible ssues or concerns. My mother was very pleased with both cateract surgeries. We would definitely recommend Dr Bigelow to family and friends. It's doctors like Dr Bigelow that really do make the difference! ! Thank you!
