Dr. Willman is an ophthalmologist with the Carlin Vision group. I was having extreme eye probmeks and he worked me unto his busy schedule. He took his time with me, answered all my questions, prescribed meds and made sure I understood how to take them and scheduled a follow up appointment. I was very pleased with the care I received. I would tell friends about Dr. Willman.

He was thorough, and very helpful

God fearing, Wonderful, Compassionate Doctor.
Lilburn, GA |
Dr. Willman explained everything happening very well. Great explanation of what was going on with my eyes in a way that I could understand. He explained options for next steps with testing and future treatments if needed. He also saw my 10 year old daughter and worked well with her.
in Stone Mountain, GA |
As you might expect when you are about to have a procedure done on one of the most important parts of your body-your eyes-, you take it very seriously and ask friends about facilities and doctors they may have visited or heard about. Carllin Eye Care was the one all my friends seemed to have used. I knew all the doctors would be good and Dr. Willman was the doctor I chose for my cataract surgery. When the date of the surgery came around, there was nothing Dr. Williman and staff had not shared
in Loganville, GA |
You can't do better than CarlinVision and Dr. Willman! Most Dr's have the tendency to rush you in and out to maximize their number of patients per day. As most cataract patients, I had reservations of anyone cutting on my eyes, but Dr. Willman calmed my fears and took the time to answer all the questions I had before and especially AFTER surgery!
Dr. Willman is a great doctor. I would recommend him any time. He has operated on both of my eyes with great success. Thanks you Dr. Willman.

Dr Willman really cared and took the time to listen. He followed up with several appts and I felt like he was being very thorough and professional.
Snellville, GA |
I have been a patient for over a year. Dr. Willman is a fantastic ophthalmologist. He performed cataract surgery on both my eyes and for the first time in over 60 years, I can see without glasses. He is also very personable. Highly recommend!!
Norcross, GA |
Dr. Willman was great!! He explained everything very well. Would use him again. He did seem in a bit rush at times - couldn't wait to see next patient.
in Lawrenceville, GA |
Dr. Willman and the staff at Carlin Vision were very courteous, knowlegable, and prompt. They made me feel at home. Dr. Willman showed me the respect that I expected. The cataract surgery went beyond my expectations. I would recommend Carlin Vision and Dr. Willman to anyone.
in Stone Mountain, GA |
Words cannot begin to express the gratitude I have for Dr. Willman and his staff at Carlin Vision. A freak eye accident back in November of 2016 landed me in the ER and Dr Willman was the eye surgeon that came to my rescue. I honestly believe I still have my eye today because of the care I received that day and all the follow-up care since then. I highly recommend Dr. Willman. He is an outstanding Doctor!
Snellville, GA |
Came to Dr. Willman for a problem with left eye. While there, I mentioned that I had seen 5 doctors since 2015 re: what seemed like infection in right eye. Dr. Willman recommended a new medication, and on follow up visit, I believe he will be able to solve this ongoing problem. Very caring, responsive doctor. I would highly recommend Dr. Willman.

I was visiting from Baltio. Md. when a friend in Loganville Ga. Recommended Carlin Vision because I had been putting off Cataract surgery for several years out of fear, but after making the appointment everything was excellent from the first phone call through both of my cataract surgery. I am so pleased with Dr. Willman & staff. Best choice I could have ever made!!!!! This coming from a person with a extreme eye phobia! I am now seeing 20/20 in both eyes thanks to Dr. Michael R. Willman A+++

Dr Willman is a great doctor.
in Snellville, GA |
Dr Willman, did cataract surgery on both my eyes. I could not believe the quality it made in my sight. All of the staff I worked with were superior in all ways and Dr Wellman set a standard that is impossible to duplicate . He is an excellent eye doctor. Many thanks to him and his staff of professionals!
in Buford, GA |
I moved here from Tennessee in Jan. 2016. I thought I had excellent eye care in Huntsville, Al. I was wrong. Dr. Willman is much more thorough and I feel is better qualified than my previous Doctor. Dr. Willman has my complete trust to take care of my eyes. In addition to his professional demeanor, he also has very friendly attitude toward his patients as well as his staff.
in Dacula, GA |
We highly recommend Dr. Willman! He is caring and compassionate and takes time to go over any question you might have. He did a great job on both surgeries for my grandmother! Thank you Dr. Willman for everything you've done!

Dr. Willman is friendly, courteous, and did a great job removing cataracts from both of my eyes. Even though I was really scared to have my first eye done, he made me feel comfortable and confident in his care.
in Snellville, GA |
I would definitely recommend Dr Willman for being compassionate and taking the time to listen to my concerns. He acted as a true professional, his recommendations for Post -Op were easy to understand.
in Loganville, GA |
I would and have recommended Dr. Willman to my family. His care for patients is excellent. I'm a retired nurse and have been around a lot of doctors, Dr. Willman ease with my husband was far beyond expectations. My husband was very nervous about his cataract surgery, but Dr Willman and his staff put my husband at ease. He still can't believe how wonderful everything went. Thank you Dr Willman for all you done. Many blessings to you. Jimmy/Linda Garcia Loganville, Ga

Dr. Willman, answered all my questions, had surgery on both of my eyes, and I have 20-20 vision now. I would recommend him to my family and friends in a heart beat. The staff there are excellent.
in Lawrenceville, GA |
Highly recommend Dr. Willman. My husband was very nervous about cataract surgery. He actually had scheduled the surgery with another surgeon before and could not go through with it the morning of. Dr. Willman put him at ease about the surgery and the expected results. My husband was very comfortable with Dr. Willman and the surgery went very well. The care and follow up were excellent.
