This was the most complete ophthalmological exam that I have ever received. In fact, this was the first time I felt that an ophthalmologist actually cared about treating me as a person. All my questions were answered. Dr. Mathias was so thorough, informative and patient with my many questions. I was totally impressed.

I was asking about eye health and what (if any) supplements I could take to be proactive in ensuring future eye health. The doctor explained what I could do and gave me details. Then she even got a specific pamphlet that had details about the study she referred to and wrote down the specifics on that for me to take home. That was very nice and showed that they really have a full service and information about everything available.
