Patient Comments (1)
in Davenport, IA |
Dr. Folk and his staff are extremely caring and compassionate. No matter how late in the day I have an appointment, they never make me feel rushed and are always more than willing to take the time to answer my questions or address any concerns I may have. I occasionally have times when I notice vision changes and they have always listened to me and have gotten me in right away to either rule out a "flare up" or to treat me in a timely manner. I really appreciate this
