worth the wait

I went to Dr. Kumar because my family doctor said he was the best eye doctor near my town. I did end up waiting a while because the office was full of patients. However, when I finally did see the doctor, he was very thorough and discussed everything really well. I ended up having surgery for cataract and now I am really happy. I should have gone to see him earlier. I would recommend him to anyone.
