My son is disabled since birth. Everyone from the receptionist >Nursing Staff > Doctor were very gentle and sensitive to my Son's need and very patient to our needs.

August 04, 2017

Dr. Drexler is first of all extremely knowledgeable and meticulous in his care. As a patient, I leave thinking that I have experienced the best available care, he is very well informed about the condition of my eyes.

August 04, 2017

The care is excellent. My only concern was that my entire visit was for nearly 2 hours (for an eye exam and new prescription). I thought I had to wait too long before seeing the physician after completing the first phase of the visit with the assistant who completed the initial evaluation.

Dr. Drexler was very kind, informative, respectful, and a great listener.

I think Dr. Drexler, Amanda and the receptionist (don't know her name) are top notch!
