Dr. DeBeer states, “My top priority and that of my staff is giving you one-on-one care for your vision, the most precious of all your senses — the kind of care that is hard to find elsewhere. I’ll treat you like a patient, a friend, a member of my own family, and not simply as a client.” He goes on to say, “When I think about the success I’ve enjoyed in my career and family life, I realize I’ve been given a great deal. I won’t believe I’ve done enough in return so long as it’s possible I have something more to contribute.”
