Edna L.
Been a patient at SW eye care for many many years and yesterday I met Dr. Adams and was extremely impressed by him. Warm, professional and very well informed. He took his time, listened to me, reviewed the tests his assistant gave me. When we finished our meeting I left the office with a feeling of well being and the comfort of knowing I was in good hands.

My wife and I have both been seeing Dr. Paul Sanchez for several years, and he did cataract surgery on both of us. Dr. Sanchez and his entire crew have done an excellent job in taking care of us. Obvious expertise in care along with a uniformly congenial staff, all in an efficiently organized and well-run office. Our thanks to everyone in the office.

I was referred to Dr. Thomas Gillette, MD because he specializes in treating dry eyes. I was favorably impressed after my initial appointment. After Dr. Gillette examined my eyes, he prescribed a treatment plan which includes two prescription medications. I’m scheduled for a follow-up appointment in several weeks. I’m hopeful that this treatment will resolve my dry eye issues.

Very pleased with Dr. Maria Valenzuela, MD. She explained about the issue I have been having for years with my eyes. No other doctor has ever explained the problem nor have they given me options for treating the problem. She is compassionate and knowledgeable.
