Dr. Faulkner was excellent in all regards. Some of the assistants dressed like they had been up all night. Not a good look.

Dr. Faulkner had a nice and empathetic attitude. He definitely knows what he is doing. I was surprised to be one of the 30 percent who have a film to grow back over a former cataract operation. He was confident in his lasering off of the film and explained what he was doing.

Dr. Faulkner identified my situation as bleeding in the back of my eye and immediately referred me to the Retinal clinic.

My experience with Dr Faulkner goes back to 1989, when he did my RK. My experience was great. No problems or situations. Easy.. Wish I had been instructed as to what to expect. No gown, no IV, just drops and his capable hands. Thank You

It was very good.
in Cincinnati, OH |
I was very concerned about all the floaters and flashing lights I was seeing when I made an emergency appointment with Doctor Faulkner. He helped calm my nerves while explaining why this situation was happening. He answered my questions in terms I could understand. And even showed me pictures. I left his office feeling like I was in good hands and with info to help me in the future if the needs arise.

Very personable. Answered all my questions. Did not seem rushed.
