I am treated for,”WetMacDeg”. I have been with Dr Witherspoon for3 1/2years. I get shots every6-8wks., it my eye. He fantastic at not letting you feel those shot. I am sensitive to Betdine& Idoine used to keep bacteria out of eyes & he wash eyes After shot. Otherwise, I eye would feel like they burning eye my eyes and aRx for numbness wears off. Soo far he’s been excellent in his treatment of me.

I have the highest regard for Dr. Witherspoon's expertise. He is friendly, fully informs his patients about their issues and procedures, and listens to what they have to say. He involves them in discussing possible treatments, laying out all the options. It's obvious how much he truly cares about the well-being of his patients. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Witherspoon, he has really taken good care of me.
