in West Hartford, CT |
All of Dr. Ratchford's staff is highly trained and dedicated. If you ask them a question about your care they will explain in detail. They do not talk down to you. Their printed literature on eye diseases is excellent.
Farmington, CT |
Dr. Ratchford was warm and welcoming, as was the rest of her staff. I had an issue with my vision that was detrimental to my quality of life, and Dr. Ratchford identified the problem and helped me. I trust that she will make the right decisions and I trust my health and vision are safe in her hands.
