I needed to book an eye appt for my daughters ages 6 and 3. I found Dr.P and decided to give her a try. I was a bit nervous that they wouldn't be able to determine how bad or good my daughters eyes were. When she first walked into the room she made conversation with my daughters and myself making us all feel comfortable. She tested my oldest daughter first 6 yrs and made it fun to where she didn't even realize she was at eye doctors appt. She was also very playful with my youngest one due to her young age she tested her using common pictures that kids her age could recognize. I would Def recommend Dr. P to anyone who has young children. She was awesome!
