Dr. Huggett was wonderful. In addition to being very thorough and helpful in explaining everything, he was also caring, compassionate, and very engaging. The office staff was also really great! I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to Dr. Huggett's office!
I've been going to him for years but this was my first time going back since he moved to the building he's now in with all new people. They were all amazing. I ended up getting help from all of them in different ways & they're genuinely nice people. I also asked them to be completely honest with how different frames looked that I tried on & they were & ended up with frames I love.
