Very Thorough! He took the extra time to review my growing cataracts with me and conducted an extensive examination. He was very courteous and friendly.

First saw him in an emergency, when an ER told me I was likely to need immediate surgery. He took great care of me! Monitored what was going on, reassuring, explained everything. Didn’t have surgery, yay! I wouldn’t go to anyone else.
