I had an eye care emergency and All the Ophthalmologists I called were filled up with appointments and refused to see me. Then I called Dr. Char's office who gave me an appointment within the hour and who saw me immediately when I arrived. His demeanor was professional, deeply concerned, courteous, caring, great bedside manner and gave me the most complete eye examination I've EVER had from an Eye Doctor. He was gentle (was hurting real bad), answered all my questions and took the time to explain my condition. I never felt like he was rushing to push me out the door as so many physicians often do. I highly recommend Dr. Char if you need ANY eye care. P.S. I'm NEITHER a FRIEND OR RELATIVE just a patient who was suffering and desperately needed to see a doctor right away.
