Dr Nils Loewen is leaving the Eye Clinic and the USA-----I will miss him-----He is one of the "good guys".

February 27, 2019

Dr. Loewen is excellent - he is extremely competent, caring, empathetic, and collegial. He takes his time explaining things and answering questions. I have complete confidence in him. I have had to see ophthalmologists for the last 4 decades and never have encountered anyone who is so patient-focused.
