Very professional. Excellent.
Very helpful with understanding the medical terminology. Efficient and kind staff.
Was frustrated that they did not check my insurance before the appointment. I ended up giving them my main insurance card instead of my supplemental vision and had to pay out of pocket for the appointment. Not their fault, but still a frustrating experience that I feel could have been avoided.
