"Great doctor! I have a rare blood disease that most people have never heard of. She knew what it was and even talked to me about how it can affect the eyes. Her knowledge, calm personality and expertise will keep me coming back!"
Cataract surgery, one eye after the other. Dr. Armour is an EXCELLENT surgeon, and her surgical staff were SUPERB at making me comfortable. Pre-op, Dr. Armour explained everything very clearly, and ensured that I understood the procedure. She also clearly explained the lens options available. Operations were brief, no discomfort, and very successful. Dr. Armour and her team gave me my life back. Thank You.
The visit with my grandma was really great and amazing work by all who work there major thanks to all and especially Rebecca L. Armour thank you
