Entire staff were polite, courteous, pleasant, and thorough. Dr. Gooch encouraged all questions that I had and answered them in detail and encouraged any additional questions. It was the most satisfying and pleasant eye exam and consult I have ever had. The follow up visit was the same. You need more stars in your ratings.

I have had 3 appointments with Dr. Gooch and all three have been 5 star. He is very through in his examination. He is willing to take the time to answer any questions that I had with understandable explanations. He has a very relaxed and conformable demeanor. He is very professional with a patient friendly attitude.
