I have been a patient of Dr Bachman's since she first started practicing in Puyallup. It has been so many years and now I'm Retired and still seeing her. I would never consider seeing anyone else for a checkup. She's a wonderful, thoughtful person that I'm glad to have had the good fortune of meeting and having her help guide me in regards to my Eyecare.I would highly recommend her, trust her and respect her. What more can be said if you're looking for an Eyecare Specialist..................
