Very disappointed in this Dr. Whitten jr. I have shingles in my eye, I'm in severe pain. I had been diagnosed on wednesday. I asked DO YOU SEE URGENT WRITTEN ON THE referral ? yes. Ok what's to understand about urgent?? I call all day Thursday, no sorry we're reviewing and we're booked. Then Friday booked. Called the after hours (as instructed) on call dr whitten 2 x s after 5.He refused to see me I have lesions on my eye that have progressed to cornea due to delay in seeing me Left me helpless

I get in quickly, I'm out quickly, yet he cares about my health and the future of my eyes. he spends an appropriate amount of time, answers all my dumb questions, and explains everything very well. He and his father before him have been my eye doctor for my entire life.
