Seemed very caring, extremely knowledgable, serious about what he was doing. Seemed to be in a hurry though.

Two BAD Experiences: My wife and I travel 375 miles round trip to see this provider. Therefore we make back to back appointments. My wife's appointment was dropped from the schedule and having to work he in was very time consuming. Then, after that she fell through the cracks again! She was abandoned in an examining room for over an hour without being seen. Our visit for normal check up was 3 1/2 hours!

I waas made to fell important to everyone I dealt with. They listened and explained and I felt taken care of.

Both Doctor Waxman and Dr. Williams were very thorough in examining my eyes. Erica who performed my vision tests was excellent and thorough with my visit.
