"I rarely write reviews but this doc is a rock. Every visit is with such confidence. He says you're going to do well and my job is to make sure you see well for the rest of your life. Your job is to just show up. Why can't all doctor's be like this. Love Dr. Wallshein"



"Very clean, professional, beautiful office. The lady doctor was very friendly and professional. Will come back soon to see dr Wallshein."



"Always willing to wait for an experienced professional such as Dr Wallshein. Office staff is attentive, prompt, and genuinely friendly. A welcoming front desk sets the tone, and a smiling exit leaves you feeling appreciated as a patient. The doctor is top notch. "



"Very courteous greetings. the spevialist that tested my vision were nice and professional. Dr. Wallshein treated me politely and professional. The Dr. discussed with me the results of my test and gave me recommendations. The office is very nice and super clean."



"Dr Wallshein has always explained very thoroughly any examination. He walked me through a melanoma removal procedure 10 years ago, performed the plastic surgery after the extraction of a temple melanoma by an excellent surgeon he recommended, discovered a mole on my optic nerve and has done cataract surgery on my husband. I would go to no one else. During my last visit the assistant that worked with me said he was the best doctor she has ever worked for. If you find him a bit distant, or have to wait a long time, just remember he sees a lot of patients and he is 100% worth your time and your eyes! He and the office staff are there for you."
