My 95 year old mother suffered through 2 failed surgeries at Duke Eye Center. I brought her to Carolina Eye Associates to find out if Dr. John French could repair the damage done. This was not a routine case or an easy patient. Dr. French very carefully considered this case and crafted a surgical response that worked for her! This was a success where others tried and failed. Dr. Chiu deserves mention because he and Dr. French provided a tailored anesthesia response suitable for this patient. Also, Dr.Sitterson made herself available to fill an unexpected scheduling need.The team of nurses and other staffers we met along the way there were fantastic. All in all--an outstanding, pleasant, and successful venture. So very glad to know my mom's sight returning...I recommend Carolina Eye Associates generally to anyone and Dr. French and Drs. Chiu and Sitterson in particular. Directions? Drive past Duke Eye Center, hang a left on 15-501 and keep going until you reach Carolina Eye Associates on Midland Rd. in Pinehurst.
As expected, the wait to see the doctor was long since I had a late afternoon appointment, but the excellent doctors and staff make it worth it. Also, the waiting room is comfortable and spacious.Everyone I have dealt with at Carolina Eye over the last 14(?) years has been knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.
Dr. Mincey: Caring, concerned, unhurried. Had a rapid change in my eye with floaters and blurriness. They gave an appointment as soon as possible. Turned out to be nothing of major concern and appreciated Dr. Mincey's thoroughness and patient explaining of every detail.
The staff were friendly and understood what needed to be done. The doctor was very knowledgeable about the cataracts on my mom eyes and were able to remove both of them. I definitely recommend this office.
