Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McCormack "I offer a variety of tests for various eye conditions. However, I suggest testing only if I think that a test result will alter the treatment. So I don't do unnecessary testing.

My assistant and I work closely together to try to stick right to our schedule so that patients rarely have to wait long to see the doctor. Your time is just as important as our time.

I enjoy seeing patients of all ages. In fact, this is one of the things that attracted me to ophthalmology.

I am a careful listener and explain conditions in plain English. It is your right to fully understand your eye condition and to ask questions to further your knowledge. I act as an adviser in your health care. You can communicate with us via phone or email. "

Patient Comments (2)

Does not provide the treatment you expect from a supposed trained professional. My wife had three (3) visits with this guy, and every time he treated it like a guessing game. Each visit was brief (few minutes) and expensive, with the last one at nearly $200 out of pocket excluding medications. ...more

I was having some double vision when I was reading. Dr. McCormack was very efficient at discovering my problem - I'm getting old! But he was very friendly about telling me I need reading glasses and was not at all condescending. He explained the anatomical changes and it all made perfect sense....more
