I can't remember when I've had a better experience at a doctor's office.
From check-in to discharge, it was great. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give.them a 15.
Gave 3 stars because I didn’t know what to rate this experience.
And it was an experience! Took 2 different people there. The results were great and have no complaints about that area. But the waiting time is horrendous. People are herded in out of room to room only to wait for some more time. Most of these folks are elderly. Both people I took are diabetic and it was awful for them both to go that long without eating. It was an all day affair starting early in the morning till almost closing time all 4 visits. The staff and drs were great and I don’t want to diminish them, but the wait time is so inconsiderate for anyone much less a high percentage of geriatric people. I really felt for them having to sit stationary for that length of time.
This was a point in my life where i have never been so scared.
Not knowing what to expect, or how my vision would be. Dr. Fakadej was absolutely amazing. The entire staff was professional, personable, and answered any and all questions to put my mind at ease. I highly recommend this facility. You will be glad you did!!
Dr. White has performed two eyelid surgeries for me.
The outcome for both has been great. He is a caring surgeon - reassuring and supportive. During the two surgeries Carolina Eye and the surgical center have both shown top-notch professionalism and care in providing the supporting services required during the surgical processes. I will definitely go to Carolina Eye for any future eye issues.
My husband and I both had cataract surgery a few months ago.
We were both very pleased with the services and outcomes. Dr. John French and his staff were knowledgeable and caring. Concerns and questions were readily explained. We were called the day after each surgery for followup. Calls made after surgery were quickly returned. Dr. French made us feel comfortable and at ease. We highly recommend Dr. French for his expertise and ability to relate to his patients.
