I found him both personable and competent with my cataract surgery...looking forward to getting the other eye done!
in Milledgeville, GA |
The eye exam was performed by a tech, not by the opthamalogist, which I had a referral to because of vision changes. The tech gave me a terrible prescription. I couldn't see with my new glasses and had to go to an eyeglass store to see a real doctor and get a good prescription. I will notify my insurance company that this is the second opthamalogist referral to Georgia Eye in which a tech gave me the exam. The website states it is done by an optometrist or opthamalogist.
