in Mckinney, TX |
INCREDIBLE SURGEON! Hands down the best eye doctor I have ever met! He is incredibly knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to treat patients (even spots potential issues before they become real problems). He reaches out to his patients and offers care as if each patient is a member of his own family.

Took time to explain every detail of the surgery. Asked questions when finished to make sure you understood the procedure. Return visits I was treated as if it was my first visit. He spent quality time every time.

One of the nicest physicians I have seen in a very long time. Would recommend him to my friends.
