Southern Eye was a horrible experience, is you do not match the assembly line approach to surgery you are promptly dismissed without explanation. Don't walk away from this place, run!

Run thru like a herd of cattle. Too many "off the street trained techs" don't know what they are doing. Should wear name tags. Money making operation. A doctor needs to know more about your history. When don't even see you before surgery they are going on someone else's evaluation. Bad experience.
