The provider was very professional and appeared to be extremely knowledgeable. I have worn corrective lens for all of my adult life and 1/2 my childhood and I have seen many many eye professionals thru the years. I am very much aware of my eye conditions and the fact I had RK surgery 40 years ago. I was just looking for an eye exam and review and a new prescription for eye glasses.

Alyce was wonderful. Her demeanor was very calming and helped reduce my anxiety about my eyes. She is an attentive listener and very reassuring. She took her time to answer all my questions and is very relatable. I have already told a couple of people about her that are in need of an eye doctor to switch over to her. She is great and no doubt has a bright future ahead of her. BSWH is blessed to have her.
