"Always pleasant. Takes time to explain information in lay terms."
"He was wonderful with my daughter. The first time she saw him, at age 7, she was "faking" to get glasses (but we didn't know it) and he took his time with her dealt with the situation patiently. The second time she went (age 10--she didn't need glasses!) he was still wonderful. Patient and knowledgable. Good manner with kids."
