Patient Comments (1)

in Las Cruces, New Mexico |
My Optometrist found what appeared to be a detachment of my retina. A call was made to Dr. Metrikin's Office and within an hour, I was in to see him. The outpatient surgery for reattacent was performed the same afternoon, and I believe the outcome will be successful.
