Very happy about my care. Only downfall was that I reported to the wrong building. It was “no biggie”. Please recognize Dr. O’Keefe and his staff. Janet R. Mar 2021

My other eye will need surgery down the road and I wouldn’t hesitate to use your facility with Dr. O’Keefe as my surgeon. The surgical team was outstanding. Mar 2018
We met with Dr. O’Keefe at 7:30 on Saturday evening of Labor Day weekend and didn’t leave until almost 10 PM. He did surgery at 7:30 am on Sunday. This is almost unbelievable. He and his team went so far above and beyond our expectations. It is almost impossible to describe. Judy G. Sep 2017
Dr. O'Keefe is a uniquely talented and gifted doctor. Very kind and concerned with each appointment. He is extremely devoted and can get tasks completed without undue stress to his staff or appointments. I regard him as a very special person to have for a doctor. He is first-rate as well as having an unusually kind and gentle spirit. He treats everyone with the utmost respect no matter how long his day has been. Apr 2016
