“Dr. Phillips is wonderful. He is easy to communicate with and put my daughter and I at ease. He is fantastic with kids and adults alike. Roxy in optical is equally wonderful. She helped me figure out exactly what I wanted when I had no idea where to start. Tons of bonus points for their COVID safety, it was a busy office with common sense health and safety protocols that made me feel safe bringing in my child.”
