We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

There are no words to praise Dr King enough!! So caring, with such a warm, calming demeanor. His staff, both in the office, and the surgery center is outstanding in every way. My vision was so cloudy, and with a Vitrectomy in each eye, along with a retinal peel, my vision is completely clear! Such a miracle! I will always recommend him to anyone. Thank you for restoring my precious vision

I would highly recommend Dr. King. After a very bad outcome of a previous macular hole repair by another physician Dr King was recommended. He has exceeded all my expectations. He is very proficient in his field and I would recommend him highly. My latest surgery was a total success thanks to his high level of proficiency and top notch care. His staff are so professional and caring as well. I am so grateful to him for my successful outcome and will continue to turn to him for future treatment.
