Eye Care Associates has been providing vision care in Wichita for over 60 years. The practice was founded by Dr. Lewis Smith, and later Dr. Phillip Ernzen joined him. Dr. Smith retired in 1996 and Dr. Ernzen in 2008. Dr. Hawk also retired in 2015 after 24 years of practice. Comprehensive vision care is now provided by Dr. Thomas McCarthy, Dr. Jason Eubank, Dr. Bret Wise and Dr. Dustin Martin.
The central location of our practice (north of Kellogg, on Hillside) allows convenient access from east and west Wichita and surrounding areas. We are dedicated to serving our patients with the highest quality of vision care. We stay on the forefront of eye care technology with the latest instrumentation and continuing education for our doctors and staff.
Pleasant office and most importantly pleasant, positive, and professional people and service. I have been receiving my eye care here continuously since the 1970’s. Dr McCarthy is professional, patient, and easy to talk to. He explains things well.
I have been a patient at Eye Care Associates for thirty-plus years. I am greeted when I come on the door, given an estimate of waiting time if more than a few minutes, and then the patient care flows smoothly.
Being at Planet Hair was really good! I'm glad I went with the choice I made out of all the other hair salons in Wichita. It was a cool and chil environment and my hair stylist made me feel quite comfortable.
I was shocked at the amount of time Dr. Baba spent with me at my first visit. He made sure that my husband and I understood every phase of my treatment. He is not only an excellent doctor, but also an excellent teacher. I was diagnosed with TMJ in 1984. In all those years I have never learned so much about TMJ as I did now in one visit. I had a hopeless feeling when I came to Dr. Baba. I thought I would never be able to open my mouth normally or be free of the severe pain I was experiencing. After the first visit I once again had hope. I knew beyond any doubt that I was in the best of hands. I have finished every phase of my treatment and I would recommend Dr. Baba to anyone with TMJ. Yes, it has been a long journey. When I thought I couldn’t make it through, Dr. Baba and his staff were ready with the encouragement to keep me going. It’s like going to see family.
