This was my first experience with Dr. Garrett. I was referred to him after my doctor retired. I have been pleased with Dr. Garrett and his staff after having eye surgery last week and am planning to let him take care of my other eye in a month.

In addition to routine eye care, have had 2 cataract surgeries with implants. No longer need glasses for distance or reading. I highly recommend Dr. Garrett.
