My eye doctor who I had for 20+ years retired and I was in need of a new doctor to get my annual eye exam. I called the office and let them know that I was looking to get an appointment fairly quick. The friendly receptionist was able to get me an appointment the next day. When I arrived the paperwork I filled out was simple and easy to understand. The nice thing about this office is that they like to try and keep all of their files electronically which is great for patients. The staff also communicates with the doctor by using tablets to send messages throughout the day for quick answers and to make the process for the clients run a lot smoother. My initial visit was a little lengthy at first, but it was because Dr. James Kintner was very thorough and took his time to go over everything with me during my exam. The staff is very knowledgeable, helpful and everyone in the office genuinely cares about their patients! 10/10 Rating!!!
