I have been seeing Dr. Chandler for several years. Most recently I had to have surgery for a rare type of cataracts. I was seen within two days of calling and then had surgery a few days later. Follow up appointments were scheduled easily and I was seen in a reasonable amount of time.

I was the second appointment of the day at 8:30 am and wasn't seen until 9:25. From then, Dr. Chandler did more to tell me about what I don't have as opposed to what I do have. So far the medication provided has not worked. I am now looking for a new ophthalmologist.
