This guys a salesman...so is his parter, dr. Payne...funny name but not a fun group. They tried to get my mother to pay $3-4000 for cataract surgery and then we went to another doctor and it was done under insurance. Completely horrible...robber barons! Stay away...go anywhere else!

This was the fourth visit and just a follow up. Total time from arrival to departure was 3 hours 10 minutes, not a hint of an apology. Unfortunately this is not the exception. First three visits ranged from 2:20 to 2:40. I did raise my concern twice and was told by a very curt/ offended office manager that 2 hours was a standard visit. obviously scheduling way to many people and DO NOT CARE that there patients spent 3 plus hours there for a five minute interaction. Arrogance at its pinnacle
