The best opthamologist in this area hands down! New equipment, friendly staff, years of experience and effective at communicating complex eye issues in understandable terms along with options for treatment. Went to a different doctor and ended up coming back due to the better experience and even...more

Office staff members are not pleasant. Very difficult getting appointments. Staff was lazy in obtaining information from my previous doctor, which was from another state.
