Patient Comments (1)
in Conroe, TX |
Dr. Kuglen restored my vision after two retina procedures and two years of being legally blind (20/400). I recommend him very highly in every aspect of his practice. He takes the time to talk to you, he explains everything completely (without talking down to you), and is very professional. On one of my follow-up visits my wife had what appeared to be the beginning of conjunctivitis. He took the time to examine her eye and told her the appropriate treatment free of charge.
