Dr Johnson was thuroug. Answered all my questions eagerly. Not trying to rush through the appointment. I purchased two pair of Glases from the location as well. $1,800 worth! Stephanie queen was the sales associate. Even though she was new. She made sure she answer all of my questions with kindness and prompt delight. We spent a lot of time going looking at glasses. She wrote down the specs. And quoted a price. I shopped around but chose Clemson eye based on her customer service.

Dr Johnson is really attentive to his patients. He could tell I was nervous at my cataract surgery even though I was trying to be brave and hide it. He put me at ease and the procedure went very well.
