Concern shown by Dr Wells was outstanding.
Doctor told me that he had asked staff to reschedule me for a direct procedure. This did not happen. He was not happy, and neither was I since I had a commute in morning traffic that wanted his time and mine.
I couldn't be more pleased with the results of my surgery by Dr. Wells. I struggled for many years with eye issues and, since my surgery, all of them seem now to be resolved. It has improved my quality of life. Thank you Dr. Wells! I am very grateful!
