From a Grateful Patient

“Dr. Farris performed a surgery to correct my double vision and I couldn't be more pleased with the whole experience! He took the time to make sure I was completely comfortable with the first surgery I've ever had and addressed all my questions and concerns. He and his whole staff were wonderful and on top of all that, my double vision is gone! Thank you Dr. Farris!” - Charity C.
