New Orleans, LA |
Dr Guillmette recently did my cataract surgeries, and called the night after each surgery to check for problems, as well as having follow-up appointments the next day, next week, etc. Instruction sheets were clear, clinic staff were pleasant and competent, and I found Dr Guillmette to be truly concerned for his patients. He is a doctor who loves his work and is good at it.
