Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wilkin "I live by the Golden Rule... "Treat others as you want to be treated." I often hear my patients ask me, "If I was your mother, what would you do?" Since I do take care of my mother's eyes, I tell them nothing different. I want everyone who comes to my office to feel like they are important and that I care about them. Given the vast numbers of patients that I see on a daily basis, the time I have to spend with my patients is limited. However, I use that time to help each patient with their specific needs and to make sure you are treated to the best of my ability. Fortunately, your ocular health is a team effort, and I have excellent staff to help provide you with the complete experience for all you visual needs. We listen to our patients and ask for their feedback so we can constantly improve our ability to deliver top-notch medical care and service"
