    How was your appointment with Dr. Colvard?

    Aug 10, 2021
    My mother just had cataract surgery with Dr. Colvard. Everyone in our family is thrilled by how well my mom sees now. The surgery has changed her life, but even beyond that quiet miracle, we are all so impressed by Dr. Colvard and his staff. The kindness and heart-felt caring that they demonstrated during every step of the process was so touching. From the first visit to Dr. Colvard’s office when he spent so much time with my mom, meticulously going over every aspect of her care, to the day she walked out of his office able to see well again for the first time in years, we felt their love for others and their dedication to the wonderful work they do.
