Ms. Yurashak’s took great care of patience in assisting me in selecting a frame that would be the best for my situation. She is warm and caring person who really does go the extra mile to help people.

My overall experience was excellent. I liked how I could have my pre-ops in Tucson, since there is only one Surgery Center. Joe in Tucson was wonderful. He called me back promptly and alleviated my concerns about the surgery. Overall, a great experience.
