Skilled and caring

I have been seeing dr Umlas for more than ten years. I can always count on a thorough examination and careful diagnosis. Yes there is a wait at times but that is due solely to his caring bedside manner combined with his desire to treat each patient as respectfully as possible. It's great to have a highly skilled md follow you over the years as your vision changes and in my case spot small items before they become more serious
