Called to make an appt specifically with Dr Bowers and was told I could just see the optometrist they were the same thing except one could do surgery. When I said that was not who I wanted to see and I might just have to get another doctor I was told ok go ahead. I really like Dr. Bowers but I am not very impressed with his staff
