Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • I love Dr. Wallace he is through with his patients. I will send all my family and friends there. But today I wasn’t pleased with the staff I was quoted a amount and when I was getting ready to pay I was given another. I asked them in the beginning how much. Not only that the amount they quoted I sign for it. Saying it wasn’t covered by the insurance.

  • I have known Dr. Wallace for over twenty years. He has seen me and my family for that long. He is very professional, and takes time to answer all questions and concerns. He goes above and beyond to make sure you get the best quality of care. The office staff was very friendly and took time to answer all my questions about insurance coverage and copays. Will continue my eye care needs with Dr. Fred.!
