in Bluffton SC |
Remarkable experience with recent cataract/vision procedure. Dr. Farr and his staff are top notch. The procedure was painless and effortless. My "new" vision is near 20/20. I am totally satisfied. J. P. Dennis
in Hilton Head Island, SC |
During the first visit, several tests, meds & procedures were ordered or highly recommended. The amount of further testing was frightening, esp. the push to do cataract surg asap. After the testing was done, I had an appointment to go over the results and firm up a plan. On the day of the appt, I was contacted to reschedule due to a tech calling in. I was anxious to hear the results but the office could not accommodate me - they suggested I come, wait & I might be seen. Not patient centered.
