Dr. Carl is a wonderful Doctor. I have been his patient since February20, 2014. Dr. Carl saved me from losing the sight in my left eye. Dr. Carl and his staff alway show me how much they are concerned about me. They never make me wait and he always gets me in when my eye becomes bad. I recommend him highly. I feel he is one of the best Doctors that I ever had and I was very lucky to get him.

Dr. Carl provided me with excellent care before, after and during my office visits. He put me at ease each time I had an appointment. Every test, procedure and medication usage was made crystal clear to me. I have recommended Dr. Carl to anyone who inquires about who did my cataract surgery. I had no problem after the surgery but felt confident that if something came up, I could contact him with ease. If I have any issues in the future, I will certainly ask that Dr. Carl do the procedure.

I have been going to DR. Carl for many years and would not trust my eyes to any one else. He is down to earth and makes me feel comfortable during my visits. I had cataract surgery with him and my vision is great. His nurse Debra is caring and was helpful to me throughout the years i have been going there. It's nice that they both work together so well.
