I wanted to get in to see a retinal specialist as soon as possible after a concerning finding on my routine eye exam on Thursday. Thursday evening I worked a 12 hour night shift and slept through my alarm on Friday morning. I woke up at 1pm which is when my appointment was scheduled. In a frenzy, I called to see if I could still come in for my appointment, even though I would be an hour late. The office staff said to come on in. When I arrived, everyone was extremely friendly. No one seemed to be irritated that I was behind schedule. In fact, the staff validated my concerns for my possible retinal tear (which turned out to be a small, detached retina). Thank you all SO much for making this visit such a great one...and thank you for squeezing me in on a Friday afternoon. I am so much less anxious over the weekend knowing that a specialist has examined my eye and that we have a care plan in place. A+.

Dr. Denise Gallagher is an excellent retina specialist. She put me at ease rather quickly after testing me to see if I had any retina tears or a detachment. Denise's friendly manner and the information she provided about my eye problem was very appreciated. I wouldrecommend her to my friends and family.
