He has been my eye doctor at least 20 years. I just saw him on Thursday. I had eye surgery a few years ago. I am a diabetic & he said he is very happy with my eye health. He said my vision is 20/25. I would not go to anyone else.

My mother wanted a simple eye glass prescription. She ended up with was a pair of reading glasses. My mother has macular degeneration but was given the green light to get this presciption. We told Dr. what she normally reads and he had no interest. My mother asked for a light on the chart and that was a no. He handed her a catalog of instruments used with mac to see better. She has a mac Dr. who would have given her that option. He could not get her out fast enough. Shame on him!
