He was friendly, attentive, and answered all questions. I appreciated his willingness to get to know me as a first time patient. I'd recommend this doctor. It's worth noting that this practice bills medical, not vision therefore your insurancemay not cover certain costs. This is disclosed at the start of your visit.

He did everything right to ensure that I felt safe to ask any questions on my mind, which is something that I rarely experience with most others. Super friendly, enjoyable to talk to, and clear passion for the line of work.He's transparent about the entire process and has taught me so much about my eyes that I've been left in the dark about for years. Motivated to take better care of my eyes because of his specificity and ability to translate everything to be fully comprehensible.
