    in Foster, WV |
    Dr. Hix is very caring and thorough. I feel that I get great eye care and advice from this office.
    in Summersville, WV |
    I came to see Dr. Hix after having a problem with my eye. I knew the problem was more neurological, but my local ER was no help. Dr. Hix went above and beyond to figure out what was wrong. She referred me to specialists and even called me on her personal cell phone after hours to check on me. She kept all the doctors informed and wanted to be put on my medical release list. She kept my family up to date and went above and beyond her role as an eye doctor.
