I don't agree with the first posters canned assessment - sounds suspiciously like a brochure.

I went to GES on Aug 28th, 2006 to have a piece of sawdust removed from my upper eyelid. Here's how it went down:
I got to the office - very convenient location
after about 20 minutes on a friday afternoon - a very reasonable amount of time to wait, they brought me back.
Without explaining what it was until after she put it in, the tech put a local anesthetic in my eye. - Unfortunate since from then on I could not feel the splinter and confirm if it was removed.
Dr. Benedict comes in after a short wait and looks at the problem. He adds another anesthetic drop, flips my eyelid and removes a piece of wood from my eye. I look at it and can immediately tell it's not big enough, but I cannot feel anything to back my case up. You needed a 10x to clearly make out this thing on the end of the q-tip he was holding. It wasn't the problem, I was certain of it.
He explains that the pain associated with an obstruction often feels excessive relative to the size and it will still feel like it's there for a few days. He did not double check my eye for more debris. Then after I left the room, I got the news - $260. Wow, for an incomplete qtip swabbing and some preliminary checks I didn't ask for, including my left eye (which there was nothing wrong with, save a little myopia).

7 days later & $260 later it's still there, I have had minimal sleep because the pain wakes me up at night when my eyes start moving (that means no REM). I want back in and they want to charge me another $80 at the minimum.

Save your money. The front desk is full of nice people, Dr. Benedict is pleasant enough, but they will charge you without successfully performing the service you requested.

Even an auto shop will finish work they charged you for but didn't complete.

PROS: Nice staff, well managed schedule
CONS: incomplete work means more charges if you go back.

Dr Chopra and Dr Benedict are both excellent opthalmologists. They are backed up by a friendly and knowledgeable staff. My family started using Georgia Eye Specialists on the recommendation of friends who were highly satisfied with their services. I like knowing that Dr Chopra and Dr Benedict are keeping up with the latest advances in their fields. And I appreciate their ability to communicate clearly and sympathetically with their patients, even when the patient can be a bit of a curmudgeon.

PROS: Knowledgeable, friendly, great dealing with patients
CONS: Traffic can make it hard to get out of the parking lot at times.
