Great experience! The office staff themselves were all very quick and explained/clarified when needed. The doctor was also very professional but also caring. She answered all questions I had in easy to understand terms, and expanded when I asked as well.

Great Job All-Around, More clinical that I am used to and that is a good thing. There was a lot of emphasis put on eye health, not just the fitting which I was there for as well as a general exam. The atmosphere was cordial but relaxed as the staff joked with patients but it didn't seem to be a waste of time, either. I also liked the selection of frames and was helped by a staff member to choose one quickly. 10/10 overall. Thanks to Kristie & everyone that helped me today!
