I have been seeing Dr. Witherington for several years now. During one of my visits he indicated that I had a form of glaucoma that needed immediate treatment. I went to the specialist he recommended and it was confirmed and was laser treated right away. If Dr. Witherington had not caught this condition, I had a good chance of going blind. I am very grateful to Dr. Witherington for his expertise.

Thanks to Dr. Witherington, I am seeing a specialist for glaucoma. Had he not informed me and scheduled me to see a specialist in glaucoma, I might not have discovered this in time to preserve my sight. He was kind and courteous and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend him and am grateful that he set me up with a doctor who specializes in this condition.
