What People Say About Dr. James Davies, MD

The front office staff was kind enough to get my daughter in for an emergency appointment, which I greatly appreciated and expressed my gratitude. Unfortunately the doctors bed side manner could use some work. For a child to have an in office procedure for expression and drainage, it is normal that the child would be uncomfortable. But for a physician to give up on the child so rudely and say that she was not cooperating is untrue. She was fully cooperative. Please work on your bedside manner!

Dr. Davies has been an amazing Godsend to us. He first treated my husband almost 20 years ago when a cancer was found on his eye. Thanks to the surgery and great follow-up, it has never returned. Our daughter had very poor vision and Dr. Davies monitored her until the technology and her eyes were both ready. I will never forget her first experience at seeing stars after her surgery! In the last few years, he has also done cataract surgery on my husband and I with great results.

I had cataract surgery approximately two years ago with Dr. Davies. I found him to be an excellent doctor for what I needed. He does the surgery in his office. One eye first, few days later, the other. He's a nice man with a quiet disposition and will answer any questions you have, just ask. My surgery was a complete success and I could finally see without glasses. First time in my life, He does lazer surgery too. No more floaters. Highly recommend from me.
