Dr. Bristol is fantastic. Professional and friendly. Takes time to explain things. Never feels rushed. I've been a patient for about 10 years now, and always a good experience. The staff is super friendly, and the huge selection of frames is great.

Our family of six have been patients and fans of Dr. Bristol’s for 15+ years. I’ve been a CRT user for 14 of those years and love the freedom (without surgery.) My wife’s vision has been a moving target for the last ten years but Dan has patiently kept up. Kids are all happy with the service. Most of all we love Dan’s holistic approach screening for a number of potential health issues that can reveal themselves in the health of your eyes.

Always friendly and professional. The front staff and back staff are equally fantastic! They are extremely helpful and very efficient at getting you in and out in a timely fashion. I have found them to be outstanding with follow up care (i.e. frame adjustments, etc.) as well. Overall, a great choice!

Great facility, staff and service. Dr Bristol and team are fast, friendly and knowledgeable. In my experience they are prepared with the upfront insurance plan info so that you understand your covered options throughout the process (no financial surprises ) which I appreciate . The office also has a good selection of frames on hand to roils out the process.
