Reviews for Dr. Courtney
“If you need eye surgery, especially laser treatment don't hesitate to go here, or ask your optometrist to refer you. This practice is a class act all the way. I came in today as a first-time patient and was in and out in 2 hours including having laser treatment for lattice degeneration I.e. a hole on my retina. Dr. Courtney and the staff are the best! Thank you so much everyone for making me feel safe.”— Kara
