Patient Testimonials

"Dr. Erb was extremely responsive, helpful, took my concerns seriously, and updated treatment to address a combination of symptoms, all via a telehealth apt! Glad I called."  
"I am grateful to Dr. Casey for her thorough, professional, perhaps vision saving exam. She discovered swelling of the optic nerves and spent nearly 2 hours testing my vision. Dr. Casey stayed well beyond closing time to complete the exam and called the neurologist immediately the following morning. This resulted in prompt attention to this condition which might have been missed without Dr. Casey's pursuit."  
  "The people at Optical Studio are great. Even though they see people all day, they treat me as if my eye exam is important to get right. In fact, they do get it right. I have been going there for ten year. Also, the air quality in the office is great. The office does not smell like perfume, scented candles, etc., and the people don't smell like dryer sheets. That stuff gives me migraine headaches"  
"I would highly recommend the Optical Studio! Everyone from the doctor to the front desk staff was welcoming and friendly. I have never felt so comfortable getting my eyes examined and they helped me find the perfect glasses!"
