“The staff at the desk were very friendly. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Sehy and Dr. Woods. They were both helpful to us during our appointment today. Dr. Sehy was very professional and answered all of our questions. We were there for an appointment to try contacts. Both Dr. Sehy and Dr. Woods went above and beyond in helping our family members learn how to insert and remove contact lenses. They were very patient, encouraging, and helpful - they tried multiple ways of instruction and invested a lot of time in our family member so that he would experience success. Excellent eye doctors!”
