He is very knowledgeable and is not only just concerned with my eyesight, but my overall health and how it might affect my current and future vision health. He enthusiastically takes care to continually educate himself on new products, innovations, and health information related to eye care and is happy to share with me what he learns that I may be interested in as well. The office staff is very friendly and efficient. Wait times are almost always very minimal. I highly recommend this practice."
