Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

I have struggled with my vision my entire life. I have had glassed in every shape, size, and color. I have had hard and soft contacts. Due to insurance I had to change doctors last year. Things happen for a reason. Thankfully I found Dr. Mitchell. He is wonderful and goes above and beyond. I am so thankful I can see clearly on this beautiful day!
