Very professional and knowledgeable doctor. He and his staff are very friendly and helpful. It is obvious by their work that they are professionals. I would recommend Dr. Thurber to my family, and there is no higher recommendation than that.

I have great vision now thanks to Dr. Thurber & his wonderful staff. They were all very knowledgeable. I knew I was in good hands all the way!
in Gautier, MS |
Dr, Thurber and Staff are very attentive to what is needed to be done, they don't treat you like a 2 sec appointment, they take time with you and answer questions that you have.
They provide the fastest service with little wait time. Service is very friendly. He answers my questions well. Seems like good care.

Dr. Thurber charges 32.00 for writing a prescription for glasses. What is the point of going to an opthalmogist if you don't get a prescription if needed. Does not do an exam for contact lens but, he has an associate that will do an exam for contacts for the cost of another exam. It is a rip off. My husband and I walked out. Waste of my time.
in Diamondhead, MS |
I have had two cataract surgeries with Dr. Thurber. The staff are always respectful and kind. I have never been to a more professional medical office. I highly recommend Dr. Thurber.
