Dr. Bert is absolutely wonderful! My daughter's eye exam was by far one of the best and thorough ones to date. Dr. Bert is a natural with patients of all ages and answers all questions in a kind and informative manner. The rest of the staff was just as friendly as Dr. Bert, too. We will definitely be switching our family over to her.
