      Dr. Neal is wonderful! She is a skilled doctor, always willing to listen and explain. I've been seeing her for years. The first time I saw, her she diagnosed a condition that my neurologist had missed. I recommend her highly.

      I originally saw Dr. Neil for an emergency eye issue. Even as a new patient she fit me in to her schedule the same day! Once I met her I knew I had just added another wonderful physician to my medical team. I am chronically ill and have several major medical diseases plus more secondary issues than I can remember. Dr. Neil has always been willing to listen and even LEARN FROM ME when I have showed her information from other physicians about issues that could show up in an eye exam. Love her!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
