          I have been going here for many years. Recently brought my elderly mother in. Dr. Cropper gave her good advice and spoke to the optician about an unusual change in her glasses. All staff us knowledgeable and courteous. I highly recommend

          Dr King takes time to know and understand his patients. I feel immense trust and comfort knowing my family amd I have the best care. He is diligent and thoughtful in his approach - something missing unfortunately in health care today.

          Went in for an eye appointment and everyone was extremely nice and helpful and made the whole process very easy! I was a bit anxious to go as the last time I went to an eye doctor (at another location) the doctor I worked with was rude, and made me feel uncomfortable but this was a 10/10 experience! Will continue to go there for my check ins and eye needs moving forward.

          Dr. King is very proficient. He takes his time and let's you ask questions without being rushed out the door.

          After having a good experience with Dr. King myself, I decided to bring my 11 year old son to see Dr. King as well. It was a great visit for him-little waiting. All the staff was very friendly with him. Dr. King did a wonderful job with him, as he is very curious (likes to see what things do and has lots of questions). Dr. King also tried a few different testing techniques with my son to be sure he got an accurate assessment. My son has been to a few eye doctors and he said Dr. King was "definitely the best."
