I took my mother to Dr. Whitacre because she was developing problems with her eyes. The goal for my mom was that she wanted to retain her vision because her and my father wanted to stay in their home. Dr. Whitacre was able to help her and three years later they are still in their home at the age of 90. He continues to see her every three months to assure that there is not anymore bleeding in her eyes. He is very patient with seniors and my parents are treated wonderfully with excellent medical care.
