Measured my eye pressure due to an unrelated condition - and put me on glaucoma drops - had an allergic reaction to the drugs - when I called the center, they prescribed the SAME drops. Went to a different eye center - No sign of glaucoma - eye pressure within normal range when considering thickness of cornea. Really bad experience. Be careful and look for someone who cares.

He explained the procedure and answered all my questions in the office. When I was at the Surgical Center, he checked on me before the procedure. that was 2 years ago and when I needed the other eye surgery, I had no problem going back to him again. The staff was friendly and courteous. I have no complaints except Thank you for all your kindness and care you showed. The discharge girls were also included. Take care and keep up the good work, your patients appreciate all you do.
