I was referred to by a friend who's sister was kicked in the head by a horse she suffered injuries to her cheek and had damage to her eye. After seeing her sisters relief, it was clear to me that she was the person I needed to see. I was treated at two other clinics both were failed attempts. I am diabetic and was legally blind due to bleeding in the back of my eye. After being in her care my eye sight has returned and I am at a 20 / 30 vision in this eye. I believe she is commitment to her patients , staff and to society as a whole . My first encounter lasted 3 hours she explained the procedures, the various approaches that could be taken and gave me what she felt was my best choices, direction and outcomes. I was referred to someone who showed me care, compassion, and real commitment.

The office called to set up another appt to discuss test results I declined to come in and asked to speak to the doctor. She came on the line and very rudely told me the results. Will not recommended this doctor and I won't return.
