Dr Goshe is an exceptional doctor with a great bed side manner. Always helpful and concerned. The only problem Is what seems to be an over scheduling on the part of CC. It is AlLWAYS extremely busy every visitwith at least an hour+wait. When going to each testing station at cole eye clinic, the wait becomes excruciating between each. Therefore, an OV involves at the very least a couple of hours.
