in Spring Hill, TN. |
I am a patient of Dr. Jeffrey Kammer. I have been for approximately 5 years. I was blessed to become his patient through a referral from another ophthalmologist. Dr. kammer exceeds all expectations!! For one I fear glaucoma which puts me in a very emotional place. Dr. Kammer is the right blend of professionalism, confidence in his skill and expertise. Dr. Kammer also possess the gift of compassion and empathy! He knows just what to say and do when he senses me literally shaking. He is the BEST!
in Hopkinsville KY |
He was extremely informative and kind. Although it was a long day and at times confusing, I was confident my Mother, Jan Arnold, was in the most capable hands. He explained the procedure, the anticipated results, and what to expect in terms that I could relate to. My mother has dementia, and as a result doesn't always comprehend what she is facing. He spent a great deal of time putting her at ease.
