My sons pediatrician alerted to a potentially serious eye condition for my son, who was 4 at the time. The recommendation we received to Gustafson eye care was priceless. Doctor Tom took immediate action and was able to preserve my son's eyesight! He and is staff have gone above and beyond for myself and my son. Friendly, timely, patient, fun and up to date with all the new technology in eye care. I could not ask for more and would never consider going anywhere else!
