Medical Privileges


"Went to Dr. MAverick in 2011.  Was having problems with my eyes and we only had one corneal specialist who didn't know what I had.  Went to another corneal specialist in San Antonio who didn't tell me what I had just said I needed a transplant.  Dr. Maverick did lots of tests and explained what I had which was called Fuchs.  He was patient didn't try and hurry me out and showed me what my Corneas looked like. I had both eyes done and was extremely happy with my results."
