Diabetes is a systemic disease that currently affects nearly 3.3 million Canadians.

This was an initial visit. My wife wanted a second opinion since she was having some problems. The staff were friendly and efficient. The Dr. was thorough and great to deal with. Answered all of her questions and treated her completely differently than the optometrist that we have been going to for years. Amazing what an efficiently run business with pleasant people can do for your faith in service providers! There are still a few out there believe me! Thanks!
What a great friendly environment, with 1st class service and cutting edge technology. If “eyes” are important, and they are, then this is THE PLACE!!
I have been going here since their last location (20+ years). Have always been treated very well. Doctors are very knowledgeable and will help you. Excellent service and willing to go the extra mile.
