As I mentioned I have no problems with staff or Dr. Estes. He is wonderful.
Patient | August 30, 2016

He speaks very fast and sometimes too many medical terms for explanations. Sometimes feel rushed & my questionnaire 'silly.' I have no doubt in his abilities, he's cared for her for 8 yrs.

I really like Dr. Estes. He seemed to genuinely care about my child's eyes.
Patient | August 4, 2016

I feel Dr. Estes could have been a little friendlier and empathetic in his bedside manner. He came across as rushed and a bit annoyed.
