Dr Boles and his staff are always very pleasant and professional. Dr Boles has made me feel very comfortable at every exam and always takes the time to explain all the details of my tests.

I have seen Dr Boles for 15 years. He has saved my sight. I have glaucoma and had cataract surgery- vision excellent.

Doctor Boles demonstrated to me that he was much more interested in his patient than the dollar. His was a second opinion, after another office wanted to operate, he told me to come back in two years for another examination! His office staff was great.
