The wait time was too long once in the exam room. when the doctor came in she, abruptly left out to and was gone for several more minutes. She informed I would only be able to identify three things to address, after having me waiting for so long. This was my first visit and last.

I received a diabetic eye test and every step along the way was explained very clearly. She asked if I had any questions or concerns and made me feel very comfortable and at ease. I could not have asked for a better experience.
