Ophthalmology | Male | 57 years old

I've seen too many ophthalmology practices that are focused on maximizing the number of patients seen per day. That has never been my goal; in fact, I have "inherited" a lot of patients who have left such practices. My paramount objective is and has always been to provide high-quality eye care to the residents of Lancaster County. My golden rule is to treat every patient as I would like to be treated myself. This means spending as much time with my patients as their problems require, listening to their concerns and thoroughly answering all their questions. Doing this right takes time, and I confess that sometimes I get behind on my appointment schedule because some patients require extra time.Read more

Dr. Givens was wonderful. I had been injured by another doctor in a different office and called Dr. Givens office after hours and he was willing to see me right away. He took care of the problem with kindness and patience knowing that I had just been through something traumatic. He is very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Givens says...

I have provided full-service ophthalmologic care in Lancaster County for nearly 25 years. During that time, I have removed thousands of cataracts and have perfomed state of the art laser vision correction and LASIK since these procedures became FDA approved. Also I have a special interest in glaucoma, having completed a fellowship in glaucoma at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA. I have published various original research papers and monographs on the subject of glaucoma in peer-reviewed ophthalmology journals in addition to presenting my work at national conferences.
