    I just moved from New York and was in need of a new eye doctor. Dr. Saavedra and the office staff are all excellent! Best eye care experience I've had. The office is clean and nice. Staff is polite and cheerful. He was very informative and knowledgeable. I'm glad I found my new eye doctor in Houston.
