I'm encouraged to have more options for improving my vision than the other specialists I visited. Friendly and efficient office. I've had eye disease that's required state of the art treatment my entire life and I rate this as excellent care and services.
Super friendly staff made a procedure that should have made me nervous (PRK) into something quick, easy, and painless. I couldn't believe how quickly I was in and out of there. And so far at the start of day 2, no pain and I can see everything!!!
We have been going to Acacia for almost 5 years and we couldn't be happier. My husband hadn't been in for a check-up in years due to some dental related trauma in his teens. They were very patient and gentle with him and he doesn't mind going now. They treat you like family and are very up-to-date with technology and more efficient than any other dentist I've ever been to. I HIGHLY reccomend them :)
