Escogí este lugar por las opiniones anteriores, y no escogí mal, el ambiente desde q ingresas es agradable y limpio, atención buena, el examen que me realizo el Dr. Me gusto explicó correctamente lo que tenían mis vistas y lo que a futuro me podría pasar, ya después escogí mis lentes y en 2 semanas me llamaron y fuy por ellos, lo recomiendo, volveré en un año para control.

Extremely helpful and professional. My prescription was way better than I had previously had and they offered me time to consider getting contacts or not.

Went here because the reviews were so good and I was not let down! Nicest doctor and staff. There was even an issue with my lenses after picking them up and the doc had them redone for free. Best optometrists in town!
