    Dr Boyer is the first professional we’ve seen who seemed concerned about my dad’s quality of life. He talked with my dad, the patient, rather than just to me. Most important, he was kind to both of us.For the first time, I left an appointment feeling like my dad might get some help.And, he seemed quite dedicated to preparing the next generation of professionals. His interactions with the young resident who joined us were equally kind, thoughtful and thorough.

  • Aug 04, 2019

    Yeah, Dr. Boyer was absolutely first rate. It was an hour appointment. He got all the information necessary from me. He had most of the past visits, or all of the past visits on his computer. He was very thorough, he told me about the anatomy of the eye, what my problems had been. He was just terrific, I mean, I just have nothing but praise for him.

  • Aug 01, 2019

    He was very attentive to the needs of my eyes. He asked many questions that were related to what I need my eyesight corrected for. And he seemed to be extremely helpful, patient, and caring. Everything he did was clearly written down in the after notes. I'm very happy that he will be my provider.

  • Apr 04, 2019

    Dr. Boyer is not only one of the kindest people I've ever met, after decades of giving up on glasses because they made my sight worse, Dr. Boyer gave me a prescription that made things better... a lot better! And, he was so kind as to take the time to fill out the attending physicians statement for me, right there on the spot! And... he found a great solution for my increasing photophobia. Really, I owe him so much more than the cost of this visit, and I'd recommend him to anyone!
