Very pleasant. Listened to my concerns. This was the 3rd or 4th Eye Care Professional I had consulted regarding excessive tearing in my eye. Dr. Carlin did tests no other Eye Care Professional had done and came to a conclusion for further evaluation and treatment plan very quickly. I have already spent over $500 in prescription medications that did not help my condition and I feel if the appropriate tests had been done I could have avoided this expense. So happy to find Dr. Richard Carlin.

He was wrong about everything that was wrong with my aunt's eye... Didn't do cataract, watch glaucoma or deal with her dry eyes. Don't go here...the doctors are really bad.
