Dr Sargent is the best. She is an excellent surgeon. She also has helped me manage my glaucoma very well. She is efficient during office visits working diligently to stay on time so waiting time is minimal. Dr Sargent is a good listener. Highly recommend her!

This Dr. is not friendly, is in a hurry, gave me wrong medicine that I was allergic to, botched my cataract removal surgery. DO NOT RECOMMEND!! I had to see her several times and she was always rude.
