“I was very impressed with the care and service that I received at The Optometry Group during my visit on Saturday. Everyone I met was kind, professional, and efficient. The young lady who administered the initial exams on the various machines was very patient and explained each step of the process. As always, Dr. Nance was kind and pleasant, and I never felt that I was being rushed through the exam. That was also the case when I went to choose frames, as I was allowed plenty of time to make just the right choice.” -T. J.
