Patient Comments (1)

I have been treated previously by Dr. Forgey and decided to get glasses and contacts. I was very unsure of what I needed and had little understanding of what I needed to do to get glasses or contacts, Dr Forgey and his office were very pleasant and professional with a great knowledge, understanding and patients.
