Dr. P is the best thing that ever happened to us 8 eye surgeries due to megs disability very blessed to know him. He truly cares.We miss him due to move. My family searched the country and found it is dr P.

He is the best of the best!
Stafford, VA |
he has seen my entire family. Helped my wife with problems after a car accident and daughter and son from genetic bad eye musles. Very caring.
Makes very rude and unprofessional comments. He makes fun of my bad eyesight, and it makes me feel awful. No patient should have to go through that. Also, I've never felt like he cares about me or my well-being. I've been seeing him for over 10 years, and he still doesn't know my name.
