Dr. Peyton and the staff in this office were great! Dr. Peyton was very friendly and personable. I love how he interacted with the patient and got my daughter involved in the exam itself by having her describe things instead of just answer yes or no. From check in, to the technician who was great, to the amazing help with picking out glasses, this friendly staff went above and beyond to make sure our time with them was a pleasant experience.Arna W.
