I just had both cataracts removed and I would give Dr Wiles five stars, as well as his whole staff. They were all wonderful and answered all questions I had. The entire process from start to finish was excellent. I had no pain or discomfort whatsoever. I would highly recommend him!!

Dr. Wiles has brightened my day, my life. He is awesome, explains procedures, makes sure you have all your questions answered and does excellent work. I would definitely recommend Dr. Wiles for all eye care needs. He has quality staff who are very pleasant and obviously love the job they do which made each visit enjoyable. I have been to other eye care centers and never been treated as well as I was at Dr. Wiles office.
