Patient Comments (1)
in Chesterfield, MO |
For years I had eye exams every 6 months and felt secure. My friend suggested I see her Doctor, just to change. Thank goodness I did, the first thing he said: you have Glaucoma and Macular degeneration, good thing you came to see me !! NOW I can truly trust a Doctor to make certain I am treated correctly and not become blind prematurely, besides, his office staff is very thorough and kind. You will not be disappointed with his care.
