Dr Himmel is confident, competent, and compassionate. He is great at what he does.
in Albuquerque, NM |
Dr, Himmel understands more about the eye than I can fathom. He remembers his patients and shows a genuine concern for how well they can see. He is easy to talk to and willing to listen. Unfortunately most of his appointments run late so expect to wait awhile.
