I joined this practice because of the talented surgeons and the reviews my patients gave after visiting this team for surgical care. Patients always raved about how kind the staff were to them and how they felt listened to. I wanted to work for a company whose number one focus was patient care and one who worked well with local O.D.s. Working for this group has been such a great pleasure and has allowed me to grow even more as an OD. The team we have is top notch and I always feel heard and appreciated by the leadership team. I just wish I had found this opportunity team sooner!” - Optometrist on staff.
