Patient Comments (2)
Denver, CO |
Outstanding doctor for specialized retina care. Very good manner of dealing with her patients. Efficient staff that handles a large number of patients, typically without excessive wait times.
in Evergreen, CO |
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.
