My visit was just fine as usual. All the girls are very friendly and helpful with whatever questions you may have. Dr Buxton is a Gentleman. Easy to talk to, will answer any questions and address any issues you may have and does not rush you. I started seeing his dad Dr Jorge Buxton a little over 30 years ago, who by the way was also a great doctor and a fine Gentleman.

Dr. Buxton is very professional. His demeanor can be a bit brusque, and he is a bit quick to get you in and out, but I appreciate that since I'm often in a hurry when I visit. He always answers any questions I may have and does a thorough examination.

I came in for contact lenses, glasses, and a general eye exam. Dr. Buxton had a warm bedside manner, was thorough, and was clearly extremely knowledgable. He talked me through what he was seeing, and gave me great advice for how to best care for my eyes (including nutrition tips). Thrilled with the visit.
