in Standish, ME |
He was my doctor before retirement. He provided my Eyecare for 27 years. He was one of the first doctors to diagnose my eye disease. Excellent quality of care. If I ever needed anything, he was there for me.
in Portland, ME |
I would highly recommend Dr Hedstrom. He did surgery on my eye to remove a cataract and did an excellent job. I have had no problems with my eye since the surgery. He is a very competent surgeon.

Arrogant, doesn't talk and explain. Poor Bedside Manner.
