On 07/18/2017 you gave us this review: 5.0 /5 I have been astounded by the care I received from Dr. Dooner. It began when he met me at his office on an emergency basis one Sunday morning. From there a series of appointments and procedures saved my vision. I just "graduated" after a couple of years in his care -- no remaining problems. Sometimes we forget we live in a age of miracles and that doctors like Dooner bring those to us. I am so grateful for his skill, fine staff, and compassion.

Dr Dooner got me in right away with a lense detachment and suspected retinal tear. He took the time to examine me thoroughly and to explain what needed to be done to correct the problem. I never felt rushed even though he was extremely busy. I don't know many doctors who would spend a holiday weekend doing surgery and post-op visits on patients, but that is exactly what he did. He is a dedicated and compassionate doctor and his staff is great! I am so grateful to have been referred to him.
in Leander, Tx. |
Dr. Dooner is a very caring and compassionate doctor. He takes his time to explain things to you, in a way that you can understand them. He is not like a lot of doctors who come in and visit for a few minutes and then leave. He takes his time with his patients. I am very happy that I found a doctor that is truly concerned about your eye issues.
