I highly recommend this doctor and office. Everyone was very kind, professional and helpful. Dr. Zdenek answered all my questions and so was his assistant Abby. Wish I had found this office earlier.....very convenient.
I thought he was terrific. I have been to other eye docs and none wanted to give me contacts. I left Dr. Zdenek's office with a contact for distance and one for close up. I'm throwing away 10 pairs of reading glasses. I couldn't be happier. What a great experience. I will be recommending him to all my friends. Also the office staff was kind and friendly and efficient.
