Appointment

Our office is open from 8:30 A.M. to 5:30 P.M. Monday through Friday. If you have an emergency and need to be seen immediately, please contact our office and you will be given an appointment without delay.

Knowing that your time is important, we try our best to stay on schedule. However, on occasion emergency work-ins do occur. Your patience is appreciated in these situations.

Please note that you should allow 2-3 hours for an initial consultation. Should you find that you will be delayed for your appointment, please call ahead to alert us. In most cases, you should anticipate that both eyes will be dilated in order to complete a thorough exam. It is usually best to have a driver especially if a procedure is anticipated.
