Dr. Bryar is one of the kindest most competent doctors I've ever met. He's very patient never rushing our visit. He allows me time to ask any questions I have. I'm grateful my vision is taken care of by such an outstanding doctor.

Medical staff is very competent and confidence-inspiring, and took time to explain the procedures to me and to make sure I did as well as possible in my test. I was not rushed at all, despite the fact that they were running late. I have always been struck by the kindness and compassion shown by this department.

My visit was helpful and important in the sense that it ruled out various possibilities for the root cause. They took the complaint seriously and ran extra tests on the same day - which I appreciated. The results were shared and discussed with me.
