Very Thorough exam. Let me know problems he saw, and the degree of concern I should have. Recommended a follow up in a one year. His assistant did an great job, answered questions, and made me feel comfortable.

great staff and nice facility. The only thing I would change is that the waiting area between Technician visit and DR visit has chairs 3 feet apart from each other and at one point there were 4 of us in that little area.

after 5 visits he did the procedure on the last visit which could have been done in 2nd or 3rd visit. He prescribed medication for a years worth of supply. Avoid him.

After a routine exam, I asked him what to do about dry eye which was causing me a great deal of discomfort. Without turning around from his computer, he said, "That's a tough one". Got up, walked out.

Very unprofessional. Waited over an hour for a 2 min appointment . Hardly glanced at eye. Asked no questions. Became defensive and rude when we asked for more information. Also, the above photo cannot possibly be the same disheveled person we interacted with.
