Great Doctor!

Dr Boles is great! I thought I had Glaucoma, but when I went to see him he told me how there was a big difference if you have pre-glaucoma. Totally pr ...

Wonderful

Dr Boles went above and beyond for me. I was being seen by an eye doctor near my home who placed me on drops that burned my eyes very badly for "Glaucoma". I went to see Dr Boles for a second opinion and he told me that I do not in fact have Glaucoma, that I simply have early symptoms that I may develop Glaucoma. There is a BIG difference. I do not have to take any drops, and he is going to monitor my vision and work with me to protect my eyes. I really like how he took the time to explain everything to me and to show me my test results. He is a wonderful man with a very nurturing staff. If you're looking for a more personal experience with your doctor, and you want to be treated as an individual and not as a means to a paycheck, Dr Boles is the way to go. Thank you Dr Boles for take such good care of me!

One Star

Without question, the strangest office I've ever been to. The tech who did my eye testing snapped her gum while reeking of cigarette smoke. Since there are NO SINKS in the entire office (except the employee bathroom), there is no way for anyone to be sanitary before procedures. I should have walked out- go somewhere else- anywhere else- but this office.
