Exceptional doctor and staff. Julian, an ophthalmic technician, put drops in my eyes the first time! Dr. Hartzell is so calm and reassuring and forthright. Turns out I need cataract surgery and couldn't feel more comfortable about it. The wait time was unusual but well worth it. Dr. Hartzell articulates well information about your condition and options. He did not hesitate once to answer any questions. Highly recommend this practice.

I've seen Dr. Dave for over 12-years now. He's always conscientious and spends the time necessary to go over your eye health. He performed Lasik surgery on me ten years ago (when I was in my early 50's). I had worn glasses most of my life, and the results were spectacular. The only downside is that my age requires me to wear reading glasses. But I figure I'm far ahead -- $20 readers from CVS rather than $300 prescription glasses!
