Patient Comments (1)
in Clovis, California |
Dr. Joos SAVED my son's eyes. He was diagnosed at 8 months with congenital glaucoma. At the time of diagnosis we were told that he would be going to a school for the blind by school age, but with the excellent skills and care that Dr. Joos gives he is now 9 yrs old and has been off eye drops since age 3. He wears glasses and still goes to about 12 appointments a year for his glaucoma. He has not needed any surgery since she operated on him in 2008. Every Dr we see always asks who did his shunts.
