From Our Patients

Been a patient for 5+ years. Amazing and efficient staff. Dr. Droter is very personable and professional. I have a child with Autism and she is very comfortable and relaxed around him and his staff. Highly recommend for anyone who may be looking for an optometrist.

From Our Patients

Office staff is very professional and friendly. My appointment time was the time at which I was seen. Dr. Droter has a great sense of humor and puts patients at ease; he is easy to talk with and doesn’t mind answering questions. He doesn’t push products but educates patients as to what their options are. The location is easy to get to; parking is not a problem. Appointments are easy to get with very little waiting.
