Have already recommended doctor and Baptist to others.
The doctor took time to explain and demonstrate the care I should be taking to improve an eye condition.
I would highly recommend the care of my doctor and all involved with my treatment.
DR JOHN HAS BEEN VERY CONSIDERATE THOUGHOUT MY TIME OF TREATMENT.
Dr. John is an excellent provider who is very professional and willing to help you in any way.
All attentive and very good.

Good - I saw two nurses for eye exam before the doctor.
Good doc like him.
He is great.
Dr John is EXCELLENT. Very caring, patient & knowledgeable. I have already seen one provider at the eye center and while he also was good, Dr. John is tops. Now, I don't want to see anyone else.

DR John is an exceptional physician, caring, knowledgeable & personable, plus I can see now, thanks to Dr. John
Provider was terribly busy with post holiday crowd, but he did what was necessary.
*Dr. John's always showed much concern about the problems I was having with my eyes.
Very, very happy with Dr John and the staff!
I like *Dr. John, he is super nice! He is a very good doctor!
Dr. John was very patient focused. He took the time to listen to my medical history and past procedures. He confirmed Dr. Martin's earlier diagnosis and recommended that I proceed with a laser procedure. He indicated he would follow-up with Dr. Martin and that Dr. Martin's office would be in touch with me to establish a date/time for the procedure. Many thanks to all involved at Wake Forest. I received informed and valuable recommendations that made the decision process helpful at my end.
*Dr. John is a wonderful & "caring" doctor.
I have already told other about *Dr. John & *Dr. Slyman.
amazing experiencefelt extremly reassuredgreat physician
Dr. John always seems rushed. I think the appointment slots are over booked.
Just love *Dr. John - very thorough & competent compassionate & caring -
Dr. John is one of the best doctors have met.
Excellent surgeon - "brilliant".
for the first time, I felt rushed thru thus post op appointment.
*Dr. John allowed me to have a hometown Dr. measure eye pressure to check my response to steroid implant (instead of driving 4 hrs. to Winston Salem). He provided written directions of changes I should make in other meds based on the eye pressure results. He also responded the same day to a question input on MyWakeHealth. BRAVO!
Quick, accurate and gentle and a great sense of humor, too!
Dr. John has been excellent throughout the treatment for my retinal detachment. I came thru the ER originally at Baptist and he personally handled some of the paperwork with the admin staff as I had not been fully checked out of the ER before being transferred to the eye clinic. I was in the surgical waiting room and saw him sitting with the admin staff trying to get the errors corrected so he could get me into the operating room quicker. Excellent surgeon!
Excellent, thanks again.
Doctor seemed to be in a hurry, I think he was overloaded trying to see too many patients.
Dr. John is THE BEST! I would recommend him highly to anyone with retina problems!
If it were not for the confidence I have in Dr. John, I would obtain a different group of doctors. He has answered my questions about what went wrong and what I can expect in the future.
