Dr Bold was very personable and intelligent. He made my eye strain completely go away - it was magic. I spent so much money on pills and potions for my fatigue, but realized that it was my eyes that were theissue!! The wait was long, but it’s because dr Bold treats each patient very carefully and in depth. He is very passionate

Such amazing staff! Very helpful and very attentive. I did wait for about 15 to 20 minutes to be seen, but honestly I didn't mind. Considering the fact that Dr. Bold took the time to thoroughly explain to each one ofhis patients what is going on . Once I was seen it all happened so fast. He answered every question I had was very knowledgeable and very patient. Genuinely one of the best eye doctors I've been too!

Been wearing my new contacts on a bike ride andthen all night and they feel wonderful. I was way overdue for a checkup and left there feeling like I had a fresh new pair of eyes!
