Summary: The Best
June 27th, 2014
Dr. P is the best Dr. I have ever visited. I have been under his care for more than 5 years now and I can not imagine seeing anyone else. His staff is very caring and they understand my special needs. I have recommended Dr. P and his staff to many of my friends and family. I can not thank Clay Eye enough for having him on their staff.....Thank you Dr. P and your staff for everything you do.....Ken B
