Dr. Vaughn is cordial, efficient, and caring. Very clear while explaining procedures and reasons for decisions made. He works with an excellent staff. Could not ask for a more positive and supportive environment.

If you want answers to your total eye care don't use this retinal specialist. He won't answer any questions about your eye unless you talk Retina Only. Left with many unanswered questions after complicated cataract surgery. Made sure he scared you into coming back for more NO ANSWERS!
