Expert & Compassionate Comprehensive Eye Exams

“I found my new optometrist! Went in for an eye exam and Dr. Pati was very thorough and patient. He was also very knowledgeable and was happy to answer any questions I had. I learned a lot about how my eyes worked and how to keep them healthy, and I will definitely be coming back. Highly recommend!”

Went above and beyond to do some extra testing as well to ensure everything was healthy with my eyes. Receptionists are friendly as well.
