I was late for 10 minutes and called in for a heads-up, they were so nice accommodate it. The doctor is very informative, enthusiastic and professional. He earned much of my trust and respect over one conversation.

The staff was professional, from receptionists to the doctor's aide to the doctor himself. They are also friendly, which I appreciate. I have no complaints whatsoever.

It's not about the care provider but the time it took to be seen. My appointment for 11:50 AM and I didn't get seen until about 1:20 PM. The staff was very nice when I asked how much longer before I would be seen and got me in to see the Dr. as soon as possible. Also the Dr. was very nice and apologized for the wait. This is very unusual to have this happen in the past I get into see the Dr. in about 15 mins.

The doctor had completely reviewed my medical record at least in regard to my eye care including previous visits and cataract surgery and was wonderful about taking time to answer my questions. He seemed to remember me and appeared to be on top of my eye issues and thus made me feel very comfortable.
