Excellent doctor. Takes his time to explain your diagnosis. Willing to listen to and answer all of your questions. He quickly diagnosed my eye injury, and I recovered quickly under his care. I wish there were more doctors like him.

This is the best ophthalmologist I have ever been to. He is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, uses state of the art equipment, has well trained staff, and methodically saves and even improves eyesite. He thoroughly explains eye issues, medical procedures, and medicine effects. You know when you've made a good choice.
