If it wasn't for Dr. Stout, I would be blind... He did Cataract surgery on both of my eyes, and I see GREAT now!! He made it possible for me to see well enough to get a Class A Truck Driver License. Not to mention, I didn't realize all the colors that I could no longer see until Dr. Stout fixed my eyes. Plus, he is an AWESOME guy. He is the man!! Thank You Dr. Stout, Jay Pizzirusso

Their billing practices are unethical...I was seen twice and they said they accepted my insurance. Then, both times I get a bill for a lot of services that are not covered by insurance. And problem was never fixed. When I tried to speak to the billing dept, they were rude and not cooperative. I would never go to them and would never recommend them to anyone.

I have Eye Med Ins. Dr. Stout accepts it. went to my exam. During exam he saw floaters & he got excited asked his nurse to look & took a photo so I could see them. I did not ask for help with this condition. I know about this condition. It is part of who I am.charged $76 for the photo & changed my exam to MEDICAL. Eye Med won't cover MEDICAL & I have to pay $212 out of pocket! I am very upset and disturbed by this.It is my strong opinion that is exploiting my situation to charge more. Sickening

Dr. Stout is very knowledgeable and explains in detail about your eye exam to you. He tells you what he would like you to do until your next visit to maintain healthy eyes. I like a doctor who tells you the truth. He is very gentle when examining your eyes.
