"Friendly, professional staff, on time, clean office. Dr. Wenz was very thorough, explained his findings and treatment method, and answered all my questions. Did not feel rushed, all in all, a very positive first visit."

"My wife and I have had detached retinas. We absolutely love Dr. Gersman, he’s the best you can get. His mannerisms are outstanding, he explains things very well, and he always gives us time to ask questions. We have all of the confidence in the world for what he does. All of the staff are very efficient, kind, helpful, and make you feel comfortable. When you call into the office for a concern, they’re very good about guiding you through what you need to do."
