Patient Comments (1)
in Apex, NC |
Dr. Bill Layden, not only saved me from blindness when my Glaucoma was stealing my eyesight like a deadly tsunami but his compassion and dedication to help me fight for my sight has lasted a couple of decades, through a dozen or so eye surgeries. He is the coolest human being on the planet. I love him and will be forever grateful to him and owe my photography and films to him seeing me when I did not have health insurance. He kept my chin up. As did Dr. Thomas Harbin in Atlanta, Ga.
