Great experience. Woke up with concern for my eyes with shingles near them. Before noon my questions were answered, concerns gone.

Dr. Smalley is EXCEPTIONALLY patient, respectful and nice. He never rushes you! I always ask for him again when scheduling a routine eye exam. The rest of the staff there are i.e. (average) competent, no complaints but Dr. Smalley is WAY above average. He is the best eye dr. I have been to!
