Dr Sims is an excellent doctor. She combines knowledge, experience, accessibility with professionalism and great people skills. She detected early stages of glaucoma before there was nerve damage. I am having mild cataracts removed, which will help with the glaucoma and tracking my golf ball. I highly recommend her!
