Very Thorough

I felt that this was the most comprehensive eye checkup I have gotten ever. The wait time was typical for most doctor offices but well worth it.

Five Stars

Since it was the weekend, the office was very busy which I completely understand and was worth the wait. He answered all the questions I had and took his time evaluating my eyes with no rush. He made sure I understood the Laser Eye Surgery and what type of equipment he uses. Great doctor.
