awesome doctor, awesome person!

Dr. Sheffield has been my eye doctor since I was a kid. Now, my husband, his family, and our children are her patients. She treats us like family, my kids actually get excited to see her! She makes their eye exams fun while being very thorough and technical. She is always keeping up with the newest technologies and enjoys explaining things as she is working so we understand everything she is looking at! Her staff is friendly, efficient, and helpful. A+ on all fronts!

I absolutely love Dr Sheffield! She has been my optometrist for many years now. I have glaucoma and ocular hypertension. She is always very thorough and I trust her immensely. I have moved out of state and still continue to see her. Would definitely recommend her.

Great experience from start to finish. Scheduling the appt was quick and easy; staff member was very knowledgeable about insurance requirements. Testing before the exam was very thorough. I never feel that Dr. Sheffield is rushing through my appt. She takes the time to answer all questions and addresses my concerns. Even in this busy office the, whichever staff member I'm working with always makes me feel like I am their only patient.

I have been a patient of Dr. Sheffield's for 8yrs, before coming to see Dr. Sheffield I had never had such a through eye exam. I found her staff very helpful especially when picking out frames...(.I always get compliments on my glasses:).

Dr. Pamela Sheffield quite literally saved my life. During a routine eye exam she saw evidence of a major problem and STRONGLY advised the tests I needed. It was cancer, previously undetected and it was already stage 3. Without her exam, I would not be here today.

Great optometrist!! Most thorough eye exam I have ever received. Dr Sheffield is very caring and her staff have always gone out of their way to help me with my insurance and with answering any questions that I had. The selection of eyeglass frames was great and the prices were very reasonable with price ranges for every budget. I highly recommend her.

Find another optometrist! Do not recommend going there, especially military. This place will overcharge for appointments and glasses. I received a letter in the mail 03 months after the initial appointment stating I owed over $100. I confirmed with my insurance well before the initial appointment that insurance covers 100%. Called Pam Sheffield's office and told them this.Three days later I received a harassing phone call from the one staff member and Pamela Sheffield stating to pay the bill.
My caring staff worked very hard with the insurance company to get this claim paid. It was resolved and paid in full by the insurance company 2 weeks later.
