Testimonials

Dr. Melzer was very friendly, professional and courteous. She was terrific and explained everything in detail. Highly recommended.

Nancy

Dr. Ammons is top notch! My family has been going to him for as long as I can remember and there’s no one I would trust more with my eyes. He also did my LASIK procedure and I’m so incredible happy with it! No more glasses or contacts! Couldn’t recommend him and his office (the staff are incredible) more!
