Dr. Etter is incredibly knowledgeable, patient and generous with his time. He is caring and thoughtful; routinely seeing me for after hour consults for urgent care and providing thorough follow-ups when appropriate. I've received excellent care with Dr. Etter and I will continue to see him when eye issues arise.
Dr. Etter is a fantastic physician. I had a very difficult cornea problem and not only did he help me resolve it but he spent a lot of time answering all my questions. He has an amazing bed side manner. He also operated on two of my family members and they also had great outcomes. Truly one of the best doctors I have been to.
