Dr. Small and his staff were amazing. I lost a significant amount of vision as a result of an accident and they treated me so well. I called and they took me in right away. I didn't wait long and Dr. Small was so caring and helpful. Thank you all for making a terrible day amazing!

I have been seeing Dr. Small for a few years now about my diabetic retinopathy. He has managed my retinal issue and has treated it for years. My vision has greatly improved and I owe it to him. I highly recommend him.
