Carol in Columbiana, al – Jan 13, 2016
When I discovered a stye in my eye for the first time, I panicked. But then I consulted with Dr. Rhodes. She not only calmed me down by explaining exactly what was going on, but also advised me on how to best treat it without having to get it drained. In two days, it was gone. I would highly recommend Dr. Rhodes!
