Dr Shirk never makes me feel rushed. She is personable, open and honest. The office is clean and comfortable. I have finally found the right eye doctor!
Coatesville, PA |
Patient, friendly, and up to date on the latest in not only eye care, but also with women's fashion frame trends. Also knowledgeable about migraine relief, and the difficulty of getting the vision correction just right! Clean contemporary office, friendly staff, countryside location.

Personal service with respect! Everyone remembers that one great medical professional person...like the first doctor or dentist you ever visited. Having someone who cares for your vision is no different. Dr. Shirk is one who not only cares for your eyes, she cares for you as a person. A true professional.

in East Nantmeal, PA |
Dr. Shirk gives a very thorough, detailed exam. She takes her time and explains each test and what the results indicate. When choosing frames she and her staff gave me their pros and cons and helped me make the right decision. Overall it was great fun.
