He is great but after finally getting an appointment and completing initial exam with the nurse, I was told he does not write RX for glasses or contacts. When I made the appointment they did not ask me if I needed that. So even though I really liked him on the last visit I was their for spots on my eyes, do not make an appointment with him if you need a prescription. Very odd that he doesn't but it's true.
