Patient Reviews (1)
in Battle Creek, MI |
I’ve never written a Doctor’s review until I met Dr Darren Hathaway. Dr Hathaway was extremely knowlegable, professional, and attentive. He is the most thorough doctor I’ve ever encountered. I had high anxiety during my initial visit and he was sensitive to this and magicially knew how to reduce my apprehension and concerns. He patiently took the time to ensure I was comfortable and explained every aspect of my eye condition/surgery in detail. A truly professional doctor. Curtis Whitaker
