I waited in the Clinton office for over 45 minutes and never actually saw the doctor. No apology or explanation from anyone there. The front desk staff was rude and I will be looking immediately for another doctor.

Terribly managed practice. If you are bored and want to hang out someplace and waste a few hours, this place is for you....

Used the Clinton Office. Staff were very good at greeting and getting you prepared for the actual exam. Wait was a bit long to see the doctor. Most of the work is done by the technician with Dr. Phillips doing the last part. Dr.P. was rude to me in front of his staff chastising me for using readers. Yeesh! Then, half blind from the drops, he personally shepherds me to the glasses salesman. Worst part? The bill - almost $400 for an eye exam? Watch your pockets new patients!

I agree the front desk staff could use some help in terms of being more welcoming but the doctor is great, I highly recommend him. You can tell he genuinely cares about his patients and their everyday lives - not just medical needs. He also did a good job trying to explain some of the eye terms to me. After Dr. Phillips did my surgery he called and checked up on me and made sure I didn't need anything. If I did need anything I know he would have met me at his office regardless of the time.

I would recommend the Doctor, very thorough. I have a problem with the staff. very rude! the girl at the desk; sue is very rude and should not be at the front desk. I overlooked her attitude due to the Doctor experience I received. Since this office takes my insurance, I know a lot of people who go there and the experience is the same. I wish more people would speak up! we are all looking to go elsewhere!
