I thought this was a pretty good clinic until I had to cancel an appointment due to a double death in our family in the same week. I called their answering service to let them know I had to cancel yet I am now getting threatening bills for a "NO SHOW CHARGE". I have requested they correct this but $25 must mean a lot to them. I would never go back now.

Although wait times can vary, when I am seen by Dr. Whitford, I feel that he addresses my concerns quickly and directly. He clearly explains the status of my vision and what to expect in the future. I typically ask many questions during my annual exam, and Dr. Whitford does not seem to mind answering all of them. I have been a patient of his for over 10 years.
