Dr. Wiggins just performed surgery on my son to correct his strabismus and we are so pleased with the results. We were hesitant to do the surgery but are so happy that we did. We would highly recommend Dr. Wiggins.

We have strabismus in our family. He has treated my son, my nephew and me. Though glasses, surgery and vision concerns I fully trust him and his staff. They are polite, conscious, and knowledgeable in vision, insurance and more. I thank you dr Wiggins for keeping my sight clear and straight.

I was there with my 2 yr old for her first eye appointment. We were there for over 3 hours!! Once the Dr. finally came in, he was very short and snippy. I got 1-3 word answers if I asked a specific question. Other than that, I got ZERO explanation of anything, I was handed a glasses prescription and told to come back in a month to check her vision with the glasses. I will be finding another Dr. Even if that means driving a long way!!
