Great place. Clean and professional office. Dr. Jordan is a fantastic doctor. I got cataract surgery on both eyes and it changed my life 100%. Great staff. Highly recommend this practice.
I suffered from a corneal abrasion suddenly while I was in town for business. The group was very responsive in getting back to me and squeezing me in on the same day. They recently incorporated a new computer system and I can see the benefits to that implementation. It made the check-in process very easy and quick. Dr. Fox was attentive and compassionate to my problem. She prescribed my prescription and laid out a clear path for me to take as soon as I flew home. Thank you to the team!
I had cataract surgery and it went fantastic! All the staff were very professional and helpful. Dr Jordan made me feel very comfortable. I can see so much better. I am even driving at nite, which was a big issue. Highly recommend them!
Great job by intake person for Dr William Jordan today. I was not able to get her name I just had surgery on my knee a few days prior to the visit and was in a great amount of discomfort She was kind and accommodating to me in every way and was very patient with me and helpful
