Dr. Sweeney is an incredibly thoughtful, thorough and kind doctor. She takes as much time as necessary to examine you and answer any questions, and she is one of the few doctors around who really seems to care about her patients.I recommend her without reservation! I do wish that the administrative person at the front desk had a nicer manner.

It was a wonderful experience! I've worn glasses since a small child & Dr. Sweeney was able to work with me right away - I'm usually told my case is very complicated - the office sorted me out quickly, put meat ease & the staff was delightful! This is a gem. I left so excited - which rarely happens when going to the doctor - excited to find such a great doctor and staff to add to my team. Just wonderful!

Dr. Sweeney herself was great! She was very kind and I felt listened to and not at all rushed when meeting with her. I have no hesitation in returning to her for follow-ups. The wait time was a little longer thanI expected, and the first assistant who called me seemed to be having an off day--she originally had the wrong patient with a similar last name (and sent her back to the waiting room to send me in instead of coming herself, even though this was my first visit), and repeated some of the things she told me. The second medical assistant I saw, who performed a test, was great though.

The Dr.'s assistant, Candy, was very nice and thorough, conducting all of the vision tests before I saw the doctor. Dr Sweeney was extremely helpful and spent a lot of time discussing different contact lens options with me, in addition tochecking my eyes for any problems. I would definitely recommend this doctor and her entire staff!
