I only have good things to say about Excel Eye Center. The doctors that I have seen are so thorough and answer all my (many) questions. Going to the doctor's office is stressful by nature, but I know I'm in good hands when I go there.

Friendly, knowledgeable and he took time to explain what he had found about my eyes. Really efficient assistant.
in Provo, UT |
I saw Dr. Parsons about 1 year ago for a routine eye exam since it is covered by my eye insurance. Dr. Parsons and his staff were so friendly and efficient. I got my first glasses Rx from him and I love them. I also got a great deal on quality glasses from their optical. I frequently recommend Excel to family and friends and will continue to use them for years.
