Kathy M

kathyWhile a local girl, Kathy spent  sometime in the California sunshine and lucky for us, she landed in our practice.  While a very capable Optician, she spends a great deal of time making certain that proper procedures are followed for the fabrication of all your eyeglass prescriptions.

This is a daunting task considering the dozens of insurance companies and their respective labs.  Somehow she handles it with a smile and an infectious laugh. Thanks Kathy!

Ruth H

ruthWhen you call the office, there is a good chance you will get Ruth.

After years of working dispatch for a trucking company, she finds our patient encounters quite gracious.

It is nice to have a kind soul to speak with when you call and need help navigating the difficulties that can arise in making appointments or even understanding your insurance coverage, fees, contact lenses, eyeglass warranties………..

It is wonderful to have it handled so well.
