I love Dr.Bouvier (awesome personality and very caring about your well-being). I would recommend him to anyone, as he helped find why my left eye kept flaring up with infection (injury from 30 years ago). That was in 2005 and have had no problems since. You may wait longer for him, but it is only because he puts the care into his patients and should be worth it (its your eyes)!!!!
My wife is a nurse practitioner in the Springfield, MA area and knows a number of ophthalmologists; she told me that I was very fortunate to be referred to Dr. Bouvier. Following my visit, I understand why she made that statement. I also have a background in healthcare and I was extremely impressed with Dr. Bouvier. He is a compassionate, highly competent physician with a great bedside manner. I recommend him without reservation to any patient looking for an outstanding ophthalmologist.
