I can't say enough about Dr. Hatch - he saved my eyesight and the eyesight of many others. I had gotten a piece of metal inside my eye and Dr. Hatch operated on the eye in a procedure that had not been done before, I believe. Previously, the "globe" would have had to be removed. This was 31 years ago. He is a wonderful physician and a wonderful man. I only wish I still lived nearby to be able to go to him. FYI - the wait is WELL worth it and was actually short considering his expertise. I remember every patient walking out of the office happy.
