Gonzales, LA |
Not only is Dr Creed an excellent physician, but his staff are just as educated, professional, kind, and caring as he. His nurse, Sheree, stayed behind after he left the room to be sure I understood everything. Her smile and kindness made me feel I was more than a patient. She and Dr Creed are a great team!

I was referred to an Ophthalmologist by my Optometrist recently. I wasn't sure who to go to but ended up seeing Dr. Creed. I don't take these surveys often by was compelled to because I liked Dr. Creed so much. He made a difficult appointment pleasant. He was WONDERFUL. My husband went with me to the appointment & also liked him a lot. I had complete confidence in his diagnostic ability & treatment, and appreciated his very kind mannerism. I was grateful to have found him.
