Was not seeing well. Dr. Wallace examined me and determined I had cataracts. He had visual aids to explain the condition. Explained all risk and financial . Called personally both nights after each surgery to check up. A true gentleman and professional!

September 12, 2018 I originally went to Dr. Wallace to have him check my eyes for Fuchs Corneal Dystrophy. He confirmed that I did have the eye disease and most recently diagnosed cataracts in both eyes. I just had surgery to have the cataract in my right eye removed. I am extremely happy with the outcome. I feel that Dr. Wallace is very skilled and very kind and caring. I received a call from him the evening after my surgery to make sure I was doing well. I have complete confidence in him.

I was referred to Dr. Wallace by another physician. Based on the urgency of my situation he agreed to see me immediately. When I arrived it was mid afternoon and he spent several hours testing then consulting with the Moran Eye Center in Salt Lake City, then scheduled an appointment for following week. I really appreciated the fact that he made all calls while I was in the room , keeping me completely informed and demonstrating genuine concern for my comfort and wellbeing.

From my first appointment to the most recent, Dr. Wallace has spent the time to extensively explain my diagnosis, and the options for treatment. He and his staff always allowed me to ask as many questions as I had. In return, I always received the professional, reassuring information I needed. My surgery was quickly scheduled at the facility of my choice. I am beyond happy with the results! I couldn't ask for a better doctor for my cataract surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Gary Wallace!

Dr. Wallace was extremely knowledgeable in his field, willing to listen to our concerns, explained all procedures clearly, honest about his expectations for results, had a very caring bedside manner, was as excited about our results as we were, and literally restored sight to my husband from blindness! The improvement in quality of life has been magical from the moment he opened his eye after surgery! He is independent once more!

My experience with Dr. Wallace was excellent. I had cataracts in both eyes. Dr. Wallace and the surgical center staff were professional and friendly. I realize that not everyone has the same experience but I was able to see out of each eye the same day after surgery.
