Had a very unfortunate experience with staff who have notoriously been a difficult unfriendly discourteous group to work with No one paying customer should be treated in such a unprofessional manner

First time I met Dr. McLaurin was almost 40 years ago for an injury to my Mother's eye. I have been his patient ever since. I dread the day he decides to retire. He is the BEST!
