Great Experience! Very knowledgeable and willing to tell you what you may not want to hear.
It was a great visit. They give you an option to have a retinal image taken instead of dilating your eyes which was extremely helpful and made the whole experience better to not have to feel incapacitated for the rest of the day. The image is super clear and turned up something that could potentially save my vision. I was very impressed with the staff and the whole office.
Great doctor and excellent facility!

Great facility, nice staff! I forgot what a pain dialation was, but oh well. I hate paying extra for additional testing services out of principal - first eye dr I find that offers that test is my goto. But, everything went great.
