I have known Dr. Gammon for the past 28 years when he treated my newborn son for a rare eye condition. Dr. Gammon is the most compassionate, professional and skilled Pediatric Ophthalmologist. He was a Godsend to our baby and family. THANK YOU DR. GAMMON!!!

When I checked my son in at Dr. Gammon's office today, I reminded the receptionist that we were declining a dilation because we were having him seen for an eyelid issue. After briefly looking at the eyelid, Dr. Gammon refused to tell us anything or look at him further unless we agreed to a dilation. He bullied us and when that failed, cruelly announced that we needed to leave. I pleaded and told him were were desperate enough to go out of insurance to see him and he said he didn't care.
