Wonderful doctor!
in Longview, TX |
I don't understand the other review ratings. My husband has been seeing Dr. Baber for over 2 1/2 yrs. & he has been nothing less than professional, courteous, straight forward & very experienced. Before using him, we had gone to another retina specialist in Tyler. He was quite rude, had to wait a couple hrs., did not appear to have much knowledge about macular degeneration, because I had researched it. He denied that smoking was not part of the cause & would be on shots always. He's only had 3.

Terrible with time management. I'm the only person in the waiting room... 30 minutes to be called!! Another 45 minutes after dilation. Called to room... Another 30 minutes waiting. Finally, 10 minutes with Dr Baber.
