Best eye doctor I ever met!

I had an unusual 1st appointment, but it was worth the wait. He had an emergency this day and it took a long time to get in. When I did, he meticulously performed the most thorough exam of my life, identifying, and enabling me to understand why my sight was getting worse. I most recently had gone to nothing but big box, national chains, that were recommended by my insurance company, that didn't even pay them. These big box chains never even noticed that I was suffering from Macular Degeneration, and the kept trying to push high priced Progressive type Bi-vocals on me. When Dr. Austin finished my exam, he told me I didn't need these glasses. Dr. Austin is a down yo earth, friendly Dr. that gets right to the point, with no beating around the bush. I am a retired nuclear power plant Superintendent, and I don't like to have Drs feed me a line, and Dr Austin will not mis-direct you. I am so glad I took the time to find this great Eye Doctor. I promise that you won't be disappointed with Dr. Austin
