Very thorough, competent and caring!
Patient | June 30, 2018

Dr Kammer is great but I would be hesitant to refer friends/family to him knowing the painful waiting room time.
Patient | June 25, 2018

Wait time was excessive, dr. overbooked!
Patient | June 24, 2018

good , very good .
Patient | June 18, 2018

Only complaint I ever have in the eye clinic is the long waits. Today's appointment was at 7:50 am and I left there at 10 am. Did not get called back until after 9 and it could have been 9:30.
Patient | June 12, 2018

only issue with provider is wait time
Patient | May 30, 2018

Dr Kammer always listens and helps with any questions I have. he always takes the best care of me.
Patient | May 28, 2018

Although I had a rather long wait time, the doctor took his time with me and was very thorough and explained why he was not recommending surgery now and what needed to be done for my continued care.
Patient | May 22, 2018

Dr Kammer is one of the best physicians I've ever been around.
Patient | May 19, 2018

Dr. Kammer was excellent - there are no words to express my gratitude for his expertise, care, and his overall demeanor every time I see him.
Patient | May 8, 2018

All good.
Patient | May 4, 2018

Wait time can sometimes be long but the doctor and staff are the best around. We drive 2 hours for the appointment.
Patient | April 24, 2018

good experience The Doctor is an optomologist
Patient | April 23, 2018

We did not discuss a lot of the outcome of all the tests I had taken that day as Dr Kammer had ordered additional testing for the following Wednesday . He explained to me that when all the additional testing is completed then we can come up with a plan that will best suit my circumstances. This was fine with me as I feel confident that he is taking the time to evaluate all the options for my eyesight. Eyesight is precious.....
Patient | April 23, 2018

Dr. Kammer is an outstanding doctor and person!
Patient | April 16, 2018

I would not recommend this provider based on the time spent in the waiting room, not anything to do with his skills
Patient | April 10, 2018

The Doctor is excellent. He must have personal notes in his records because he is able to talk about things I told him the previous year.
Patient | April 9, 2018

Dr. Kammer & the technicians were excellent.
Patient | March 23, 2018

At the eye center on 20 February, the physician yelled down the hall for me when he was ready for me. Obviously he had gotten the word that I asked what was causing the delay.
Patient | February 26, 2018

My husband and son are under ophthalmologists care in Georgia now. Those doctors were all impressed with Doctor Kammer and stated such to both of them.
Patient | February 19, 2018

Dr Manner was somewhat abrupt, but I am willing to overlook that, ad he seems very competent.
Patient | February 14, 2018

I would have appreciated more information about cataracts and the likelihood of needing treatment for them.

Very confused about what medicine I needed. Not sure about the condition of my eyes. I was not given any written information on the condition of my eyes. I was told new glasses won't help.
Patient | October 25, 2017

I was told to get over the counter drops for my eye condition, but was not told how long it would take to clear up my vision or when I should come back in if it doesn't improve.
Patient | October 23, 2017

I have a great deal of confidence that Dr Kammer is providing excellent care.
Patient | October 23, 2017

Dr. Kammer is extremely informative and thorough in is providing information and his response to questions.
Patient | September 25, 2017

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.

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.
