      I was referred to Dr. Geisse by a Physician and recommended highly by a friend. He knew exactly what my eye issues were and what exams were necessary. He is very patient and and answers any and all questions asked. Wait times can be lengthy, but he's busy.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
