Both doctors were great with my kids, but they tend to take forever. I think they see other patients while they wait for your eyes to dialate. Not sure, but kids have zero patience and started singing willing songs at thetop of their lungs in the office today. My suggestion is to bring stuff to do for them :)

I think it was fine, but there was thing that bother me. I have been wearing glasses for a long time. I considered it to be one of my charms, and somehow I felt that the Doctor gave me the vibethat something was wrong with me. I later figured that I lot of his business come from laser eye surgery, and that he wanted me to have one.
