Patient Comments (1)
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Goosey has saved my eyesight, not once, but twice. I trust him implicitly with my vision. He's a brilliant doctor with a gentle manner and a terrific sense of humor but, most importantly, he is a patient listener, takes great care of all of his patients, and takes their vision health to heart. His office staff is most caring and very efficient. I can't imagine going to anyone else.
