Patient Comments (3)
in Pine Mountain Club CA |
Excellent service and relieved all fear about the surgery
in Bakersfield, CA |
I have a genetic eye diagnosis that's dangerous and painful if not treated immediately and correctly. I've had unfortunate past experiences with two other doctors locally. I interviewed Dr Hair in advance of this flare up, years ago. He assured me he'd help immediately with kindness. When I hurt badly, kindness is everything. Well it happened again !!! I drove 2, 1/2 hrs. home to be seen. He squeezed me in his full schedule and cared for me as promised. Complete respect !!
