My name is Sheila chandler, I was very well pleased with Dr.Fitz he made me feel comfortable told me everything that was going to go on. The staff and nurse was very friendly. I would recommend Dr.Fitz for all your eye problems.I would give him an A.

He told me what was going to happen, how long it was going to take and that he didn't see any problems. And that was the way it turned out. I am very happy with my new eye sight.
in Farmington |
The technicians are highly rude, and inappropriate. Twice with different techs I have had the issue of them being hateful. One today asked me how my eye was this past week and when I said It's been really painful and it seems like everything is going wrong she replied I WASN'T BEING RUDE AND I KNOW THIS IS SSOOOOO HARD FOR FOR YOU BUT I DO NOT THINK I DESIRE THIS AND FRANKLY WAS NOT RUDE. Honestly, not to sure why she said that, or why she even started yelling at me. Kinda unprofessional.
