Dr Saavedra was extremely pleasant and professional! We were in for my three year old daughter's very first checkup. Dr Saavedra was very cheerful and confident working with such a young patient- my daughter was so comfortable throughout thevisit and is already eager for her next checkup! I would gladly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a phenomenal optometrist!
