I am so happy with this Optometrist!! He was patient, and explained everything clearly. I usually get a massive headache after an eye exam and I didn't this time!! I honestly feel this was the overall best experience that I've ever had! I am really excited to pick up my new glasses and see!! The staff is friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend Dr. McLaughlin!!
