I visited Dr Essman's office for the first time today. I have been in many offices and even worked in doctors offices over the years. I must say that I have never been treated with more genuine concern than I was by both the doctor and his team. Dr Essman took the time to talk to me, offer options and listen. His team was professional, kind and compassionate. I expected good. I got GREAT!

Corrected my vision after cataract surgery done by another doctor. Before it was cloudy even with glasses. So Happy to see again! Thank you Dr Essman.

Great Dr our daughter has been having severe eye problems along with health issues. Dr Essman advised us to see a rhematologist that did nothing for us and Essman took care of getting us going in correct direction with them. He actually listens and cares for the patient and is very knowledgeable.
