.........truely cares.......
in Indianapolis, IN |
Had a special request of Dr. Alig. He went above and beyond to help me out. He is by far one of the most accommodating, caring physicians I've ever had the privilege of knowing. Of course, he is very knowledgeable. He spends as much time as you need, listening and making sure you understand your situation before leaving his office.

I experienced a corneal abrasion which was so extremely painful that I was experiencing vomiting and high blood pressure from the pain. The hospital referred me to Dr Alig who's team took me back immediately. They made me comfortable, numbed the eye, did the exam, and placed a lens bandage over the cornea making the unbearable pain tolerable. Dr. Alig and his team were AMAZING! He even gave us his personal cell to call in case the lens fell out. So nice to find a doctor who cares this much :)
