Patient Comments (1)
in Baton Rouge, LA |
Dr. Nussdorf is one of the kindest and truly extremely knowledgeable doctors that I have ever been to. He has carefully monitored and cleared up so many of the problems my eyes had due to improper care. I cannot say enough about him or his staff. They are all just terrific. Learning I have Glaucoma from Shingles of the head and eye and learning the other eye at some point had a strok, it is comforting to have a doctor that knows all about Glaucoma and all about eye problems.
It's so good to see that you had a positive experience with us, Elaine. We work hard to make sure our patients receive the best quality of care. Thank you!
