Patient Comments (2)
in Woodbury,Tn. |
He found cataracts in both eyes which had developed in a short period of time. Operated in a short period of time and my eyes are like when I was a young man. A very kind and caring man. His office staff were outstanding. Wait periods were extremely short, I have never had such short waits. A smooth experience from start to finish.
