Patient Comments (53)

I've been a patient of Dr. Payne's for decades! He is kind and compassionate, and always takes time to listen to my concerns. He's quick to provide suggestions and treatment options. I could not have my eyes and precious vision in better hands.

Dr. Payne is highly skilled in all areas of eye care - as is his staff and associates. He is an especially gifted eye surgeon when it comes to cataract surgery. No pain or discomfort during of after surgery. Most importantly, a fantastic improvement in vision for both me and my wife.

As a new resident of north GA I was concerned about finding new doctors. A family member recommended Dr. Payne.
