Patient Comments (1)

Seems to be a knowledgeable doctor and has been in Lubbock a long while. We believe he is a good ophthalmologist but his over scheduling his office time is way out of line. Whether his decision to over schedule or staff management's decision, having to wait over an hour each visit is not right....more
