I had never seen Dr. Thanos before. I had not had an eye exam, since [date removed], and had a bit of a panic attack, when I started seeing floaters and lightening flashes. Devers called me back the same day. I told the scheduler what was going on, and had an appointment the next day. Each and every single person at Devers, from reception, to Doctor Thanos was phenomenal from the second I walked in. I didn't even wait 5 minutes to see the technicians.

There were more people in the waiting room than normal. The techs were managing it well. Dr Thanos seemed hurried. Not usual for him. He spent adequate time with me. This Dr. Is always gracious & educational. Today he was possibly overbooked. He is so well informed & qualified that todays experience was an anomaly.
