Patient Comments (1)
in Burlington, IA |
I have been seeing Dr. Alward for nearly twenty years for glaucoma in my left eye, and most recently for cataract surgery. He has always been friendly; has explained in detail the issues I'm facing, as well as the outcomes of the various tests and procedures I've gone through; and his residents, interns, assistants, nurses, and schedulers are very congenial, patient, and helpful. I would definitely recommend Dr. Alward and his department to others.
