Waited for well over an hour and a half in total to see her. She was super rushed and gave me the sense she just wanted us out of there.

My daughter was born with a unilateral cataract and developed glaucoma at 4 months old. She has been seeing Dr VanderVeen since she was 2 weeks old. Dr. VanderVeen is an excellent doctor, she is very caring and compassionate and takes the time to explain everything in detail.
