Dr G and her staff are SIMPLY THE BEST! In 2022, I went there for a routine eye exam and found out that I had Angle Closure Glaucoma. I was asymptomatic and my previous visit to Visionworks didn’t find this condition. I had never heard of this condition before. After doing my own research, I found out that Dr. G was honest, caring and correct about the urgency of getting laser surgery. I could have went blind. Dr. G. and her staff are caring, good listeners, patient oriented, very short wait time, highly professional, clean office, etc. I was so nervous and they calmed me down. The laser surgery Dr. G performed was successful no side effects. My 2023, follow up visit was successful. THANK YOU!

I was able to get an appointment the very next day when i called. Although there were many people waiting everything went smoothly. Staff was very nice and the facility was very clean and sanitized. Would recommend anyone to come here for their eye care needs.
