Summary: Exceptional
March 20th, 2018
Dr. Poland has been my ophthalmologist for 25 yrs. He is so knowledgeable and makes you feel confident that you are getting the best care available. He did cataract surgery on my right eye in August 2017 and it was handled with such skill that the entire experience went smoothly, thanks in part to Beth, the person designated to scheduling and many other duties. She made sure I had all the information needed and reviewed the post op eye drops with me. I can't say enough good things about her competence. I honestly never even felt that I had surgery. Very satisfied with the outcome! Thanks to the wonderful staff at Gwinnett Medical Center also. They are fantastic!
