They were having computer problems & something else that had contributed to the long wait (and he apologized profusely), but when he examined my eyes, I felt I had his full attention and I definitely got my money's worth because he probably spent 15-20 minutes with me.

The women at the desk were friendly and very helpful. I couldn't find the office and they patiently gave me directions on how to find the office. The doctor listened to all my questions and was very thorough in my examination.My appointment was on a Thursday and he asked me to call back Monday to update him on my eye infection. I would trust this doctor for future eye care.
