Dr. Degler is the best optometrist that I've ever been to hands down. Her and her staff are amazing and so attentive to the needs of their patients/customers. Being in the military I've been seen by dozens of optometrists all around the world. The experience at this office is definitely the best I've had and is top notch. Highly recommend for individuals as well as families!
