All the people (nurse-Doctor) have been very helpful and caring
May 28, 2021
Dr. Gudena wrote out key points, drew, & handed me the info to take home. He was very clear and organized, had clearly read my case info, & answered any questions clearly. He also provided related info about studies. He provided information to consider, and a date after surgery to further discuss treatment based on the outcome of the surgery. I could not have asked for a better consultation.

Dr. G is always very friendly and puts you at ease. He sits down and listens to your concerns and questions. On this particular visit, I asked him about whether one of my prescriptions could be causing high eye pressure, and he took the time to go research this while I was there. In addition, I had to come back the next day for bloodwork, and he called me that afternoon with part of my results. It was nice that he took the time to get back to me so quickly, thus easing my worries.
