A+.

8/23/2016

*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!

8/20/2016

Quick, accurate and gentle and a great sense of humor, too!

8/8/2016

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!

7/29/2016

Excellent, thanks again.

7/21/2016

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!

6/2/2016

Top notch!

5/24/2016

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.

5/11/2016

So glad the Eye Clinic is back to normal. People talked to patients, I didn't feel like a number like I did 2 yrs. ago!

4/12/2016

This was my first visit with this doctor since my specialist left NCBH so it was a "get to know you" type of meeting and exam. He was helpful and very thorough.

Dr. John exudes confidence without arrogance . That is a great fit for all patients.
