Dr. Bruce explained that my blurred vision was caused by cataracts that I forgot I had been diagnosed with. All was fine until he toldme that until I could not read the top line of the eye chart with my glasses on, I would not be a candidate for cataract surgery. I knew that could not be true and have confirmed that. I\'m not sure why he would do that except that he thought I was wasting his time or having an alarmed response to a normal condition. I teach at Texas A&M andall my work is computer based. The blurred vision was pretty bad at times throughout the week, and I know I cannot do my work with blurred vision. My wife immediately researched the standard and found Dr. Brice misrepresented it and was almost dismissive of my concerns. He was not appropriately supportive and likely unaware of my medical history that includes a TIA. I am casting my vote with my feet and have already made an appointment with another physician outside Scott and White.

Dr. Brice is straightforward and frank. I am 75 and know my sight will gradually deteriorate due to cataracts, that of course nowadays can be treated. Currently, the deterioration has been so slow as to be almost unnoticeable. Dr. Brice told me this is good but that there is nevertheless a slow deterioration that is occurring. This is the the honesty I appreciate.
