Very good encounter. I had had a very bad experience with another doctor who did an injection into my eye. Dr. Christmas came recommended, so I went to see her first to talk about the procedure. She outlined every step of her procedure and was honest about the possibility of it causing pain. The procedure went flawlessly, and she explained everything she was doing. I felt much better and trust her a lot more than my previous doctor.

I had a retinal tear in another country two years ago that was repaired there. I wanted to establish a relationship with a retinal specialist here in case I have trouble later. I was told by the office that I would have to find a different doctor or optometrist, that I don't know (primary doctor referral is not enough) who I would never see again just so they could perform a one time examination and to refer me to Dr. Christmas. Unbelievable administrative brick wall.
