“Very friendly, efficient staff; very competent doctor. I drive from Birmingham to continue seeing Dr. Payne because I trust him and know he provides excellent care.”

Deidre

“The staff was very friendly. The doctor was kind and explained everything clearly. The facility was very clean. They are to up-to-date with their technology; I used a tablet to fill out the registration forms. It was so much better than having to write out everything, and definitely was a plus!!”

Arielle

“Amazing staff! They are great with kids! They gave my son the time to talk and ask questions and then answered them.”

Ethen

“Dr. Holler is great – very attentive and shows true caring.”

Robert

“The whole experience was great! I was very impressed and am so happy my son sees Dr. Gertsch now; he explained to me how my son’s eyes were working so I could better understand!”

Connor

“From front desk to check-out, each person I had contact with was friendly and professional. I did not have to wait a long time to be seen by the technicians or doctor. The summary of my appointment, which was printed for me at check out, was very helpful in that I didn’t have to remember everything that was done; this is great for your personal medical records. This was not my first time at North Georgia Eye and it won’t be my last.”
