Dr.Grant saved my vision in 2009. He is a miracle worker. He always makes me feel as though I am his only patient of the day, even though the waiting room always has 25 patients waiting for him. He is extremely intelligent,has great bedside manner and is always willing to explain what needs to be done, why, and how it will improve vision. I can't say enough good things about Dr.Grant.
Dr. Grant is an excellent diagnostician with a warm and compassionate bedside manner. I have visited his office three times and waited on average an hour each time to see him. On one visit, the waiting room was SRO(standing room only). The actual time spent with him is somewhat rushed due to the crowd waiting in the hallway.
