What Our Patients Have to Say....
My husband and I wholeheartedly recommend this office. We have seen Dr Dragon and Dr Batac for both routine as well as emergency eye exams, and we found them and their staff friendly, efficient, and professional. They never seem rushed yet appointment times are kept. Our prescriptions were possibly the best we have ever had, and the eye glass consultants were so cheerful, patient, and helpful. I also now have contacts thanks to their tireless perseverance and patience. The office has a true “family oriented” atmosphere - where we feel like we are known and cared about. The equipment and procedures are up to date /top notch, and patient care seems chief priority.
