Dr. Haupert is one of a kind. He is thorough, efficient and goes above and beyond his job requirements to make sure I am comfortable and cared for. I have been seeing him for 10+ years, and has helped me through the difficulties of having a degenerative eye disorder. He is the best in the business!
