I am being treated for iritis a serious eye condition. Dr. Couris has been wonderful taking time with me and answering all of my questions. My Husband had questions for him as well. He had my Husband come into the examining room and even had him look at my eyes so he would understand what he was explaining to him. I feel very secure with Dr. Couris and would recommend him to anyone. The office staff was friendly and handled my appt. quickly.

In my first appt. today, he did several tests within an hour. I have spent a half day or more at Shiley, with far less customer interaction and explanation. Can't get much better than this Doc
