Honest and thorough

I felt he focussed on me and my questions. He also put me at ease and made me laugh - a great thing in a doctor these days.

Most competent!

My daughters have seen Dr Estes since age 2, and we all love him! He is thorough, caring, and competent, and he did an excellent job on one daughter's amblyopia surgery 10 years ago. He has a dry sense of humor and never cracks a smile, so it may take a minute for one to know how to take him, but he cracks us up! We would hate to lose him. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend Dr. Estes. My son was misdiagnosed leaving me feeling very uneasy and upset over what I was told. I went to Dr. Estes for a second opinion and he reassured me that what I told was incorrect and explained why. We have been going to him every year since and I am very satisfied and son seems to be doing great also with his glasses.

Extremely good doctor

Dr. Estes is not exactly warm and fuzzy, and I don't mean that as criticism. He actually does make quite an effort to make my child comfortable. That's just not his greatest talent. He appears to be an intellectual, and his work is much more important to him, I think, than being everyone's "best buddy." Frankly, I don't mind that, but if you want a "hand-holder" you might be disappointed. BUT, he is an excellent doctor, and a very skilled surgeon. He came highly recommended and I can see why. And he'll tell you the truth without beating around the bush, which I really appreciate. In short, I am very happy he is my child's eye doctor and I highly recommend Dr. Estes.
