I can not say enough good things about Dr. Busquets! He is extremely knowledgeable in his field of Retina and yet is able to convey the information to the patient in an easy to understand manner. He also listens to you and takes the time to answer any questions or concerns that you might have. The wait time in his office is always very reasonable and the office itself is very comfortable. Dr. Busquets is outstanding and I would highly recommend him!
