He is exactly what you want for a children's eye doctor! He is careful, fun, took plenty of time with us, and solved the infection my child had. (Is it wrong to add that he's really handsome too!!)

Having been to numerous doctors, this MD is wonderful. We were able to make an appt for my 8 week old in no time and the experience was wonderful. His office staff is very nice and courteous and Dr. Underahl is as good as they get when it comes to doctors. He spent time with us, answered our questions, was very knowledgeable about his eye condition, and is an overall great person. We are from out of town but will be coming back.
