in Lumberton, NC |
Very professional. Takes great care to explain procedures and to answer patient questions. Warm, friendly staff.
in Massachusetts |
While in Myrtle Beach, SC for 10 weeks, I needed continuing retina care while away from home in MA. Before leaving home, I searched the internet and found Cape Fear Retinal Associates in Wilmington, NC. Dr. Charkoudian was absolutely top-notch, excellent, efficient, and thorough. He and his staff were extremely caring and exceeded my expectations - being a bit nervous about selecting and being treated by a retina physician unknown to me. I highly recommend Dr. Charkoudian for eye care.
