Patient Comments (1)
in Nashville, TN |
Dr. Jerkins explains eye issues in a way that's completely scientific, but comes across as completely understandable to a layperson. I can't say enough how the entire staff at this office is very professional from sign in to check out. If you want top notch eye care in the Nashville area, do yourself a favor and make an appointment.
