Patient Comments (2)
Brandon, MS |
After 2 retina surgeries on right eye, I had numbness, swelling, & slurred speech occur a month after the 2nd surgery. I called the office & they did not seem concerned; I was afraid something had gone wrong the right eye or something more serious on that side. Dr. Herring,"Your retina is fine, pressure is a little high, but ok, so I do not know what to tell you about your problem." Trip to ER $$$ -determined I had an allergic reaction to eye drops prescribed for pressure. #changed doctors

Very skilled, caring and compassionate doctor. One of the best, if not the best, in his field.
