Dr. McKnight was great at communication, listening and generally interested in my questions and concerns from a past cataract procedure somewhere else. The procedure was timely, painless and I left very satisfied with the experience.

After waiting over an hour and a half we finally left without being seen. No explaination from staff which leads me to believe this is normal. If I am scheduled at 2:30 do not want to be seen after 4:00 as a new patient first impressions are horrible.
