I have had eye problems since the age of 35 and I'm now in my sixties. I have been a patient of Dr. Tharp since he opened his practice in Evansville. He and his staff provide the best care and always make me feel like whatever I'm going through is really important to them. I am prompted to write this review today because I am having a serious problem with my eyes right now and ran into an insurance issue. I went to talk to the office and Dr. Tharp came out himself to talk to me. This office works as a team and that is obviously to the patients. Thank you Dr. Tharp and staff for your continued good care of me and your other patients.

Dr. Tharp performed Lasik on my eyes in 2000. I was and remain very pleased with the results. He is an excellent opthomologist who is kind and considerate to his patients, and he is a wonderful human being.
