So caring and patient and thorough. Office staff is welcoming and caring. Very honest. Would highly recommend. Everyone seems in a rush anymore but Dr McGahen takes his time to listen to you. Refreshing

When I called to make my appointment, I mentioned that we don't have eyeglass insurance and would need a prescription and PD measurements and we would shop around for glasses. I was told that would not be a problem. I just finished my eye appointment, but was refused to be given my PD. I know not all eye doctors provide the PD, which is why I asked when I made the appointment. Would strongly recommend looking elsewhere for service.
