I had a wonderful experience!

I had a wonderful experience! The person who dilated my eyes, I think her name is Ashley (I am sorry, I am not sure), and did the first preliminary tests was so caring and friendly and started the appointment out with a very pleasant and trusting vibe. She is great!! The doctor, Saidivya Komma, OD, was also wonderful. She was personable and competent. She did a very thorough exam and took the time to explain everything. Even though there are many places closer to my home, I will continue going to Guilford Eye Center because of the treatment I receive. I highly recommend this practice if you are looking for great place to take care of your eyes.
