Personal Statment

Primary eye care isn’t boring; I knew I wanted to help people see from a young age. And I love it, still. It’s my goal to make every patient feel at ease. Making them feel comfortable helps me get to know them and understand what kind of care they need.

    Both Dr. Crutchfield and Madonna were very kind and professional - they listened to my concerns and explained their processes and exams and the reasons for each one.

    The doctor made the appointment fun. I felt like I knew what was happening each time an instrument was used and that they explained how my eyes worked and what actions I could take to ensure that I had good eye health.

      The appointment started behind schedule and at the end of exam only my distant vision had been tested. My near vision was not which is why I wear readers. Did they just forget? I asked and said if I'm wearing store bought readers my near was ok. I still would want to know numbers so I can gauge declines from year to year.

      Dr. Crutchfield is amazing! She really cares about her patients. She even took the time to discuss potential career options with my son. We had no idea that his interest in photography could lead to a job taking photographs of the eye.

      Dr Crutchfield always explains, and asks questions. She never acts rushed even though I'm sure she is pressed for time on many occasions. She is the reason I have continued to return to UK year after year.

      My only complaint is that my eyes dilate VERY EASILY and stay dilated for hours after the visit. There has got to be a better option for someone like me. From my 8am appointment, I had the lights off in my office until almost 2pm!
