Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have been seeing Dr Tovey for a few years now. He is always friendly and very knowledgeable. He knows his stuff and always explains everything in an easy to understand way but never talks down to me like some doctors try to do. I highly recommend him.

Excellent choice for an Opthalmologist
Dr. Tovey is very thorough, personable, and explains things extremely well. I am completely confident in him as a physician and feel fortunate to have him caring for my eyes, both medically and surgically. The office staff are great and all vision testing and care is under one roof.

I enjoy the personal touch of Dr. Tovey. We are conversant in many things during the eye exam and treatment. He is very transparent with me as to the eyes and their diseases and the effects of diabetes on my vision. He has become a friend, and not just a doctor.

My cateract surgeries were done by Dr.Tovey at Discover O. I have had no problems, and had a check up yesterday and my vision was 20/20. He gives very professional, friendly, supportive care which I appreciate very much. All of the employees are very friendly and helpful. There is a very good atmosphere that makes it easy to come for eye care

Dr. Tovey is such a nice man. My first exam with him revealed a detached retina and he was on it quickly. I saw the specialist within a day and a half. I am now getting ready to have cataract surgery on both eyes. I have no doubts regarding Dr. Toveys skills. The office personnel are all nice and I've been to 3 different offices.
