We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff upon entering the office. We were seen in a timely manner. Dr Ellen Mitchell was super friendly and knowledgeable. She interacted with my child extremely well. I appreciated her calm and quiet manner. I would definitely recommend this doctor and her staff 100 percent!

Because of the name of the dr. a neuro-opthmalogist I thought there would have been more talk about what was going on with the nerves of my eyes and more discussion about the test that I had before my visit. The dr. was very nice and I pretty much got the same test as going to my regular eye dr.
