Very pleased with him as a doctor. Very knowledgeable and takes his time with you. Was very happy except for the wait time. I had already filled out the paperwork and there was only one patient ahead of me and whilethe doctor waited for the patients eyes to dialect he still did not see me. I waited 45 minutes to be seen. Was not happy about that but other wise very pleased.

The staff is friendly, professional and efficient. Dr Latter is low key, listens to your concerns and read the notes. He answered my very elementary questions with patience and respect. I have been previously trekking to Jules Stein for my eyecare, but I found him to be knowledgeable, confident, and ably addressed my concerns. I am pleased to have found such a skilled practitioner near my area.

Dr. Lattner was extremely thorough and helpful. I was looking for a new doctor because my long time ophthalmologist just became too assertive so I was avoiding visits. Transferring records now though…Dr. Lattner and his very helpful staff have a new fan.

I really liked the service at this office. I was greeted and tended to as soon as I walked in. I did not have to wait long. I only waited about 10 minutes. I was processed quickly. The nurse told methat the doctor would be right with me. I expected to wait 20-30 minutes alone in the room, like many other doctors do, but I didn't have to wait at all. The doctor walked in and introduced himself. He took his time to examine me and diagnose what I had. He was very patient even though I was asking many questions. He explained everything thoroughly. I highly recommend Doctor Latter. - SONIA J.
