I have been going to this Dr. for a while now. I needed new glasses and had to wait for this young girl to stop talking to another woman about her last job. Then she tried to help me but had to stop and call in another lady to help me because she has no idea what she is doing. What ever happened to knowledgeable sales people. I have lost all faith in the eye glass department. I did not get my glasses there!
