Dr. Joel and the entire staff are so professional as well as very thorough, they took the time to ask of family history, and Dr. Joel was very down to earth and made sure to examine my eye with such professionalism that made me feel very reassured that my eye would be ok after my corneal abrasion....more

I was SO IMPRESSED! First the staff (especially Phyllis) and then Dr. Brown. They really put me at ease as I was worried about an issue I was having with my eye. You could really tell there were good vibes there. I'm so happy I found a good place to go and rely on!
