Patient Comments (1)

in Viera, FL |
I am sure Dr. Paylor is a good doctor, but he provided me with almost no understanding of my condition. Every year I would go to him and he would say No change. In eight years, I learned nothing about my eye problems until I finally went to another doctor who was great.
