Very personable. Felt like she took the extra time to listen and explain things to me. Felt she was very thoroughwith my appointment and explained results and what things meant as we went along. She even took the time to help me pick out frames! Will definitely use her from now on and will recommend her to everyone I know!

She was very knowledgeable and very personable. I would only recommend to make sure that you are being charged correctly.There was a little confusion at checkout to the tune of about a $80 difference in what they said my contribution should be and what it actually was, which in the end was only $10. Just don't be afraid to nicely ask that the person double check you insurance benefits if you are being charged more than what you were expecting your copayment to be. They were quick to make the correction in my bill. Overall great experience! :-D
