Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

All the staff is very kind & professional. Dr MacCumber answered any questions I had. I do wish I had someone with me as driving home after having my eye dilated is really difficult even with using the sunglasses you provide. I will be sure to bring a driver with me next time. I understand the Parking situation is not your responsibility—-but that is a BIG issue!!! Thank you.

I have been seeing Dr. MacCumber for many years and wouldn't consider seeing another retina specialist. My recent surgery experience underscores my confidence in him and his practice. Everyone was supportive and helpful during what was a pretty stressful time for me. I appreciate Dr. MacCumber and his staff and highly recommend them.

Exceptionally well qualified in retinal diseaases
It is always scary to have impaired vision, so my anxiety is high when I go for the appointment, but Dr. MacCumber is so calm and compassionate that I am put at ease. He is one of the best known retinal specialists in the country, so I am fortunate to be able to be a patient.

From the moment I arrive at Dr. MacCumber's office I know my exam and treatment will proceed at a high level. I am greeted and taken through the steps by people I trust and in whom I have total confidence. Some I have met several times before in previous visits. Some I am meeting for the first time. Each impresses me as highly trained in what they do, and there is a friendly personal touch. Then I see Dr. MacCumber towards the end of my visit. He goes over all the steps leading up to that point in the visit, performs his own examination and thoroughly and understandably explains his findings with respect to the condition of my eyes.
