    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.
