Front staff is very rude in this office!!! Their main goal is to collect money; need some customer service training ASAP.. I feel sorry for the doctors for allowing those people to represent their business. Don't make the mistake I made by going to this place. Not recommended!!!

I had a very rewarding experience today at Dr. Burcham's Eyecare Center. The staff were friendly and polite and very efficient. They really took care of me. Dr. Burcham was thorough in my eye exam and answered all of my questions. I recommend him and his staff very highly.
