Dr, Nuygens is a pretty good Doctor but the wait time is terrible and the office manager Sharon is a witch. Not professional at all and screams at their patients. Dr Nuygens really need to get rid of that quack!!!! What a nut job!!!!!

My son had complications from eye surgery performed in Burlington. Even though he was not her patient, Dr. Nuyens treated him for many hours beyond office time. She remained in contact his surgeon though out the laser procedures. Dr. Nuyens saved my son's eye!
