Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I called Dr. Anfinson's office as a new patient with flashes and floaters. The woman who answered the phone was extremely helpful, scheduling me within 24 hours. From the moment I walked in until I walked out, everyone was very nice. Dr. Anfinson quickly diagnosed my retinal tear and treated me right away. Dr. Anfinson is one of the nicest people I have ever met. I can't thank them enough for the amazing care I received there.

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.
