“My husband was so concerned about passing the vision test to keep his driver’s license. Dr. Sehy was a compassionate, caring doctor. He took his time with him and provided the best exam he’s ever had. He is finally getting the help he needs and we are full of hope and thankfulness. We highly recommend this caring facility for vision care. The staff was kind, the doctor was kind and the service was impeccable.”
