St George, UT |
Dr. Lord is a nice guy and is very competent but he is always in such a hurry that we have no time to really discuss what is going on with my eye treatment and future needs.
Hurricane, UT |
I am a healthy 48-year-old woman who is an atypical candidate for retinal disease. After a visit to an ophthalmologist with concerns about dark spots in my vision I was referred to Dr. Lord. My retina was detached in 2 places. Dr. Lord met with me the following morning at 7 AM to perform my surgery. WOW! It doesn't get any better than that, folks! Not only is Dr. Lord a gifted eye surgeon, he is also the real deal; a genuinely kindhearted and "non patronizing" professional who cares.

As much as I hate getting shots in my eyes, Dr Lord and his staff make it as tolerable as it can be. They are all amazing!!
