I was referred to Dr Cullom by another eye doctor in 2009 I saw her until about 2012 when I move the state. I have pseudo tumor cerebri diagnosed by dr. Cullom and she did some wonderful things for me got me on a medication called Diamox which is also known as acetazolamide it helped me get off my soda addiction. I have have nothing but the best experience for my care. the staff that she had they took very good care of me.I never had one staff member be rude or rough with my testings.

She is very abrupt --almost rude--and says very little. She made a false assumption about my purpose of seeing her, resulting in my not having a prescription for glasses, so when I needed a second pair, I was unable to get them without making an entirely new appointment. Also, when I had an eye infection, I was unable to get an appointment with any doctor there within a week, so I went to another doctor in town who right away said I had a terrible infection and prescribed an antibiotic.
