Very professional, nice staff, timely appointments,

Dr. Hopen discovered that I did not have an eye disease that I faithfully took medication for 23 years to control. he watched and tested me closely for a year to be sure. A couple of years later he found another serious condition relating to the retina in my eye. He referred me to a specialist for this type of thing and i can proudly say I got the green light this week, no more treatments, the condition was resolved. These 2 issues could have blinded me, my eye sight has not changed at all.

Dr Hopen diagnosed I had a pituitary Adenoma causing me to have double vision which came and went. Had surgery to remove the tumor the size of a golf ball . My other eye doctor who I used for years kept dismissing my Eye problems. If Doctor Hope hadn't recognized my problem I could have gone blind. Thank GOD for his talents
