My visit was great. Dr. Yelgar took the time to chat with me about what I do and to explain the results of all of my eye health scans. He was really pleasant and I'm glad I made the change to him as my eye doctor. The office is conveniently located off the ACE line and there were A LOT of frame options (if you're into glasses).

Dr. Shrishyla was amazing. He was nice, insightful and left me feeling fully taken care of. I highly recommend him. The wait was a bit long especially for how short the actual appointment was, but not a deal breaker.

This doctor is awesome. I was worried about why my eyes were feeling weird after my trip and Dr. Shri was very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. The staff was amazing, from the compassion and helpfulness at the front desk to the professional ladies that did my pretesting before I saw the doctor. Not only did I walk out of the office with the information about what was going on with my eye health but I had an action plan about what to do next. It is very hard to find a doctor like Dr. Shri and I hope many people read this review and come see this doctor you will not regret it.
