What Our Patients Are Saying

Dr. (Heidi) Herring is very complete and takes time to explain well her diagnosis and suggested next steps. When I’ve had an issue that required a referral, she provided excellent recommendations and followed up well. I very much appreciate her expertise and terrific level of care. Highly recommended.

-K. Tyrell

Dr. (Heidi) Herring worked with me to find the right contacts for me. I’d been through about three other doctors who were more of the “deal with it” variety. With Dr. Herring, she facilitated me trying four different types of lenses over several months until I found the ones right for dryness and astigmatism. She wanted the very best for me and sees it as part of her job, not “extra.” Four years later, still wearing them and they are perfect!

-A. Duncan

Very friendly staff.  I trust what Dr. (Heidi) Herring tells me.  Have used her for several years and will continue.  Would recommend this practice to anyone who is looking for a new eye doctor.

-D. Sorah

Dr. (Ben) Herring and the staff are outstanding! I injured my eye on a Friday at 4 p.m.  All the Dr.s had gone for the weekend.   Dr. Herring returned to the office to see me and saved me a very expensive trip to the emergency room.   Thank you, Dr. Herring and staff. Your kindness in my time of need is greatly appreciated


Doctor (Ben) Herring is very professional, very personable, and very friendly. The entire Staff gets a 5 star rating as well.

-B. Bathon

Dr. Hunt and his staff are always friendly and efficient.  Very professional.  His office is obviously up to date and they regularly upgrade the specialized equipment needed to provide the best care.   Strongly recommended.

-D. Ferguson

Dr Hunt and the staff have been awesome. I’ve seen them for years now and appreciate how well they treat me.

-R. Gaddis

Doctor Wittke has always shown the utmost professionalism and compassion toward me and my wife Barbara.  Paul also dedicates many hours of caring for the poor. Paul and wife Sheila  are  outstanding examples of a Christian life well lived.
