Dr. Slocumb is a great surgeon. I fearfully and reluctantly decided to have my cataract surgery done on my right eye. Dr. Slocumb helped put my fears aside and did a fantastic job. The surgery was absolutely painless and I could see about 95% better out of that eye as soon as I got up off the table! It's been about three weeks since the surgery and everything is well. I'm getting ready for my last post-op visit with Dr. Slocum and new eye glasses. Everybody on his staff was kind, informative and profession. Never had to wait more than 15 minutes for any appointment. I recommend him highly.
