Dr. Popham scheduled my surgery in January, 2014 to remove a mass above my left eye. After the procedure was performed, he indicated that it was not a cyst and that he planned to send the biopsy to his laboratory. He also indicated that he was unable to remove the entire mass, the mass turned out to be a rare form of sarcoma. Since that time I have had several MRI's, all negative, thanks to Dr. Popham's surgical skills.

I am a bit disappointed that My husband could not experience the medical service of Dr. Popham. A week before surgery we asked for medical billing codes so that we could call out insurance company. We were asked if I was in billing but explained that I had surgery two weeks before. We signed billing agreement and I was guaranteed they would get right back with us for this information. One week later and too late to cancel we were given our fees and time for surgery. Very big manipulation. Sad

Dr. Popham always shows interest in diagnosing my eye/health problem and finding a treatment or cure. I have been overseas with difficulty sent him a picture and had a prescription waiting when I returned.only one other doctor has ever cared for my health like Dr. Popham I am greatful for his medical opinion and treatment.

Dr. Popham performed 3 surgeries on my teenage daughter's eyelids. The eyelids muscles were weak and unable to work properly. The lids started out equal, but after 3 surgeries they are now a mess and one lid gets stuck. When we confronted him with or displeasure he said it could take as many as 10 surgeries to get it right and then talked down to us, as if understanding a procedure was above our understanding with blood and tissue in the way so he can't guarantee anything.
