Super Eye Doctor
Patient | September 9, 2017

Dr. Kammer did not tell me how "bad" this procedure was but if he had I would have done anyway. The amount of pain after procedure is as severe as any I've ever experienced including gangrene & arterial clot in foot however, the pain was so long & persistent I would have been Lortab addict by now. Wish there was something for pain.
Patient | August 25, 2017

I have never had a problem with Dr. Kammer's care.
Patient | August 24, 2017

I have been always treated with the best care, the only problem I have is the long wait.
Patient | August 21, 2017

Jeff Kammer has a world renowned reputation. I am fortunate to see him
Patient | August 8, 2017

Dr. Kammer is particularly clear and effective in explaining the medical problem and its solution. He was vey attentive to my questions and provided direct and exact answers.
Patient | July 24, 2017

Like Dr. Kammer. Issues are wait times - feel like over booking is the issue - not enough time being allocated for various tests.
Patient | July 18, 2017

Excellent experience; Even called me on a Holiday Weekend to address a concern I had.
Patient | July 11, 2017

very good
Patient | July 10, 2017

I sell insurance and have recommended Dr. Kammer and the entire Hospital to many of my customers.
Patient | June 27, 2017

excellent surgery result. He was very rushed this day. Family was with me and he tried to explain to me what I needed to do. My daughter helped explain more later.
Patient | June 26, 2017

I waited 2.5 hours for 5 munities of seeing a Dr. My appointment was at 3.30 with Dr. which I saw him at 5.05 and out of his office at 5.10.
Patient | June 26, 2017

He seemed a bit rushed because too many others were waiting for care
Patient | June 26, 2017

A very good experience.
Patient | June 26, 2017

It is my own fault, but after the hustle and bustle of the exam, I forget to ask about my concerns and what happens to the treatment regimen in the months ahead. It would help me remember if the provider would solicit questions.
Patient | June 20, 2017

Dr Kammer is a very good doctor. He spends as much time as I need to understand any questions or concerns.
Patient | June 19, 2017

Always good with Dr Kammer
Patient | June 17, 2017

My husband and son have been referred to Doctor Kammer in years past. My husband continues to see him. My son needed a different type of ophthalmic specialist.
Patient | June 12, 2017

very good experience
Patient | June 6, 2017

Doctor Kammer and his staff are excellent. I use the .com site for question as well always get an answer in less than 24 hours.
Patient | June 5, 2017

Doctor listened and understood that I was overwhelmed with information for that particular office visit -- I was able to contact office by phone and got direct clarifications on medications within a reasonable time.
Patient | April 24, 2017

Dr. Kammer is a credit to his profession!
Patient | April 19, 2017

Superlative! I come from a family of fine doctors and Dr. Kammer was professional, courteous and caring in every instance.
Patient | April 17, 2017

My care provider initially gave me instruction to use medication that were different than what was given to pharmacist. The 90-day prescription did not accommodate the usage of medication in both eyes. However, the provider did instruct pharmacist to refill additional medication at no cost to me. I appreciate Dr. Kammer care and concern for my medical needs in correcting that issue.
Patient | April 16, 2017

I would recommend the provider, but I cannot recommend the eye clinic since they do not show ANY care for the patient's time.
Patient | April 10, 2017

I have found Dr. Kammer to be willing to answer any question. I have been to other glaucoma specialists, Dr. Kammer is one I WOULD RECOMMEND.
Patient | April 7, 2017

I totally trust Dr. Kammer. His care is always excellent.
Patient | April 5, 2017

It was a follow up visit the day after cataract surgery. The doctor said everything looked good and told me to schedule an appointment to come back in two weeks. I did not have any questions.
Patient | March 27, 2017

Dr. Kammer referred me to a specialist but I would definitely recommend him to my family.

Patient | February 7, 2017

Patient | February 4, 2017

Have been very impressed with Dr. Kammer during my care at Vanderbilt Eye Clinic but waits seem to be increasingly longer. Again this was longest time in the clinic of any visit.
Patient | February 4, 2017

He reviews his records well and asks me about topics we discussed on previous visits. He is very careful and complete.
Patient | January 25, 2017

Patient | January 15, 2017

Very pleased with results of cataract surgery and aftercare.
Patient | January 9, 2017

Again, the provider is very busy so, although he took plenty of time with me, I always feel a little breathless when I get out.
Patient | January 3, 2017

He is a very good provider, I believe he is very knowledgable , but I could have used a slower explanation on what was going on with me
Patient | December 24, 2016

He was a very good provider.
Patient | December 16, 2016

I continue to trust my vision to Dr. Kammer.
Patient | December 14, 2016

Recommendations would be more likely if not for appointment wait times but this is a major concern and have heard many patients complaining about this while waiting.
Patient | December 12, 2016

All my family members are being treated by Doctor Kammer and his staff.
Patient | December 12, 2016

Dr. Kammer is always nice and spends whatever amount of time is needed with me he is never rushed.
Patient | December 1, 2016

Would recommend to other family members & friends.
Patient | November 18, 2016

now take into account Dr. Kammer can explain all day but the lingo is new to me also have never had laser surgery so he probably explained it wonderfully I just don't get it.
Patient | October 31, 2016

I have been going to see Dr. Kammer for about ten years now. He is my favorite doctor and is always attentive to my needs. I recently moved to Knoxville, but I drive back to Nashville to see him.
Patient | October 24, 2016

Waited over 1.5 hrs to see the doctor for approximately 5 minutes.
Patient | October 17, 2016

The time spent waiting is discouraging, enervating, and unnecessary.
Patient | October 17, 2016

kammer is fantastic. knowledgeable guy, friendly. i have strong confidence in his abilities.
Patient | October 10, 2016

Jeff even called me Friday early evening to give the results of tests ... he goes above and beyond and only wish he had enough machines and help
Patient | October 10, 2016

A great doctor"
Patient | October 10, 2016

Information he gave me on cost of the one procedure I decided on turned out to be different once I got down to the office to make the appointment. He should update on the current cost before he quotes a price.
Patient | September 22, 2016
