Dr Wallace is great! He was very thorough and attentive to my concerns and needs and answered all my questions in a way I could understand. He has a very pleasant personality and I will definitely refer my friends and family to him in the future.

I am very happy with Dr Wallace! He performed surgery on my eye to install a shunt to help control the pressure in my eye. He called me the evening after surgery to see how I was doing. He is professional and yet very personable. He and his office has a comforting manner. He is helpful and thoughtful!

Dr. Wallace is incredibly knowledgeable and I consider him to be the best ophthalmologist I've ever seen. I highly recommend him.

Dr Wallace was good. We got there on time and were told it would be an hour wait. It was over an hour. They said they were behind. I understand that, but they should have called and had everyone come in an hour later and not have to wait. I think it is rude and ignorant of them. My time is as important as theirs.
Dr. Wallace agrees that your time is just as important as his. We are always reviewing our systems to improve our efficiency and keep our flow predictable to minimize wait times. There are times when we have to work in emergency patients or when patients have a lot of questions. We are sorry you had an unusually long wait. We will keep trying to improve.
