I travel so I go to many eye drs for wet eye Mac d shots. So far Dr Anfinson is the best. He is the only one who used a minimal amount of teasing so I had the rest of the day without the scratchy irritated eye that I always experienced in the past. He does a fantastic job

I called his office for an emergency appointment. They answered professionally and offered me an appointment for the following day. I was greeted by a very sweet and professional young lady who took my information and insurance card. She led me to the waiting room and I was seen within 30 minutes. Dr Afinson was very personable and quite through in his exam. He explained everything, I felt at home in his office and he and his staff are great. I highly recommend him for eye care. Great experience

Doctor and staff are extremely competent. That not withstanding, the waiting time was excessive. I routinely have to wait 25 to 30 minutes before the initial exam/dialation.
