Dr. Faulkner & Team have been treating me for Dry Eye now for 2 years & he is THE Medical Expert! Am MUCH improved due 2 his care! Plus, he is a compassionate listener. SO important. As a Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis patient, this has likely been coming on for 35 years - wish I’d been referred WAY earlier. Had to give up contacts during 1st pregnancy (35 yrs ago) Optometrist just said I had “wrong kind of tears.” So much more complex than that! Highly recommend Dr. Faulkner for Dry Eye & also Colleague, Dr. Arar for Cataracts & Gen’l Ophthalmology. CEI are highly respected practice, involved in research - knowledgeable about latest therapies. Can’t do better. Also involved in charitable efforts. Good folks. They care.

Dr. William Faulkner cares for his patients as they were his family members. He is kind, gentle, and compassionate. He takes time to answer my questions, using laymen language as well as illustrative photos, sometime even drawing figures to help explain my eye conditions. He does not just treat my symptoms but also takes initiative to order extra tests to explore other potential causes of my eye problems. I have been to other eye doctors before, none of them have indicated to me that there might be other causes for my eye sickness besides the obvious factors. In addition, he discusses and thoroughly explains prescriptions to me and addresses to any concerns I might have before he prescribes the treatments. He always tries to find ways to save prescription cost for me. In addition to providing excellent care for my eyes, he works tirelessly with my insurance so that they would cover some critical prescriptions for my eyes. It has been a blessing to have Dr. Faulkner caring for my eyes!

Came in with a bad case of pink eye and Dr. Faulkner was great. He said it was the viral version and that there was a treatment for it. Cleared up in about a week.

I enjoyed meeting Dr. Faulkner and I have to say that this is the first time when I have felt like a physician has really taken the time to examine me, understand my issues, listen to me, and make sure that they and their staff explain absolutely everything to me. The amount of attention to detail and concern was something that I've not been used to.

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.

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
