Dr. Hater has been my husband's doctor for years. We credit him for saving my husband's eyesight after a major bout of shingles. So when I had to see a specialist, he was my first choice as I have absolute confidence in him. He always takes the time to completely explain everything.

I Had heard great things about CEI from family and friends. The commercials are true. I didn't belive it until after my visit. Kettering Hospital is the only other facility I have been to where you feel warm, welcome, and feel you will receive good care. Everybody was happy and Courteous starting with the person that checked me. Dr. Hater was nice and very knowledgeable. He explained everything, answered all my questions and extended an interest for my concerns and offered a firm hand shake which is very important to me and my husband. I had a great first experience and join the crowd saying positive things about CEI. Thank you for a great first experience.
