Dr. Heersink took his time and was very informative. He was very pleasant and made me feel at ease. Great choice for an ophthalmologist in the wiregrass area!

I cannot express how caring, warm and professional Dr. Marnix Heersink and his entire team were with me during my visit to Eye Center South. I would trust my eye care to him and recommend him to friends and family alike!

I"ve been seeing Dr. Heersink for more than 5 years in the their main Dothan office and there is no one I trust more with my vision than him. He always seems concerned, caring and willing to help. He also makes patients feel welcomed in the exam lanes.
