I was able to get an appointment the same day for a scary condition that occurred suddenly. I saw Dr. Jay Heilmann whom I have seen before for a similar reason. As usual , Dr. Was professional and thoughly efficient in his exam of the issue. Thankfully, he was able to assure me the there was nothing wrong and that this a one of occurrence! I highly recommend Dr. Heilmannfor his ability to restore a patient's confidence! If there had been something wrong, I am sure he would handle it just as professionally!

Appointment was on time, as scheduled. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Dr. Heilmann explained everything very well regarding what he saw and what he felt should, or, what should not be done regarding my eyes, at this time. Would like to see me again in one year.
