Patient Comments (6)

We sat in the waiting room for over an hour to see this physician with no notice from staff, no apologies... nothing. Horrible service and do not agree with spending money on this lack of courtesy for patients.

Dr Moster saved my vision. I have had several vision crisis. She gave me her cell phone # in case of complications. She was always there when I needed her. Her staff is amazing. Lena has always treated us with the utmost respect and caring.

My experience with Dr. Moster and her staff, were amazing. They were all very courteous, and very helpful. Although, I was expected to be there a few hours. Dr. Moster, took it upon herself, to make it as rapid and accurate in my diagnoses. Thank you, Dr. Moster, you are the best!!
