Patient Reviews
Mar 30, 2019
Dr. Nipper recently performed my cataract surgeries. Throughout all of the pre-op, surgery, and post-op visits, she has been wonderful. She explains everything, answers all questions in an understandable way, and in general made a very scary process quite bearable - a major feat with a patient who flinches for mere eye drops!

What’s a board certification and why is it important that my provider has one?

A board certification represents a provider’s dedication to ongoing training in one or more specialties, including the completion of intensive exams.
