Patient Comments (1)

Terrible and expensive. In fact I paid twice as much for this eye care at Lavato Eyecare than I did for my prior eye doctor in Durango. They just want your money. It's cheaper for me to drive all the way up to Dgo, get more than half the price from a true professional for exam, contacts, & glasses...more
