Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I saw Dr. Wallace today for an issue that I had seen an ophthalmologist before in the past. I never got any answers until I visited Dr. Wallace today and brought up that issue. Not only did he figure out my problem, but he gave me an easy solution. As if that wasn’t enough already to make my visit worthwhile, I also was impressed with how friendly and helpful EVERYBODY is in that office. So glad that I go there 😀."
