    Dr Whillen was great but the wait time was not acceptable. This has happened to us almost every visit.

    Dr. Silken has always been exceptional and I am thankful for her wonderful care of my son throughout the years he has seen her. I will always recommend her to anyone I know needing these services.

      *Dr. Willen is an excellent physician and the only reason why we continue care here and not go back to Cincinnati Children's. It should not be that hard to contact someone prior to changing an appt date or time. It also should not take weeks to months to obtain contact lenses.
