I found Dr. Broadhead to be very welcoming and attentive to my concerns. He also checked for things my previous optometrists did not when I mentioned that I was having trouble wearing contacts. One of the most positive optometric experiences I've had in a long time, hands down!

I've been seeing eye doctors for over 20 years and haven't had a better experience than with Dr Chism. Very professional, polite, knowledgable, and he got me out in a timely matter (not to mention being available early on a Saturday). Also, my new contacts arrived for fitting less than a week after my first appointment. Very rare! The reception staff is also very welcoming and accommodating... Wouldn't recommend any other eye doctor!

I've been going with Dr. Broadhead since 2008 at Shopko to this day I can say he is the most patient, caring, nice, most helpful doctor ever! Last time I went to get my eyes check at his new office he was so understandable and he gave me all these options of contact lenses however I told him I would stick to the brand I use. I feel that he is the only doctor that I've been to that is very patient and helpful when it comes to eyecare. He is very understandable and answers all your questions.

From start to finish, my experience was wonderful!! I felt very taken care of and the steps taken to evaluate my vision were so detailed and thorough. And a gracious new customer gift was an unexpected surprise too! Dr. Broadhead was incredible and just so nice - wonderful and really caring. He took extended and thorough time to evaluate my needs further, educate me on the condition of my eyes, the expectations and also provide me with exactly what I needed. Amazing experience!
