Dr. Wayne Bixenman is the "Pro From Dover' regarding opthamological services in Tucson, Arizona. He is the best!

My husband had a severe cerebellar stroke last August. His primary care physician recommended he see Dr. Bixenman for double vision associated with the stroke. Dr. Bixenman gave my husband a prescription that did not correct his problem but actually made it worse. So we scheduled another appointment with him for today. My husband, who still has trouble walking and gets very tired, waited a full half hour for Bixenman and then just walked out in disgust. How do these doctors get away with this?

Dr Bixenman is the most knowledgeable Opthomologists I have ever encountered, and I have been going to Opthomologists for the past 65 years. His specialty in Neuro Opthomology leaves him as the sole Neuro Opthomologists in Southern Arizona.
