    The doctor was amazing. My daughter had previously gone 4 years with no eye care because providers refused to see her. This doctor was beyond knowledgeable and so patient with my daughter

      Other than the wait times and the initial nurse/check in person, the dr was very knowledgeable and friendly.

      Dr. Van Norman's interactions with my child were respectful and she made the visit more fun. She too was able to easily develop a rapport with my daughter and my daughter responded with cheerfulness and cooperation.

      Dr. Van Norman is excellent at explaining and understanding the nature of children. If it weren't for her, we would be going elsewhere for our care!

      Dr. Van Norman is wonderful. Not only with my son but me as well. She included him in all explanations, told him step by step what she was doing before she did it, and was very positive in her responses to him

      Dr Van Norman is WONDERFUL! She explains things very well, she listens to our concerns, she didn't make us feel rushed when having difficulty getting my 7 year old to cooperate with his new contact lens and even offered us a solution to take a break, leave and grab some lunch and come back the same day to try again which was EXACTLY what we needed. I can't express enough how much this means to my husband and I to know these people truly care about our son and his eye sight!

      Ellen Van Norman is great! She explains things in a manner that is easy to understand. She is cautious, which is appreciated, and she is kid friendly. Had it not been for how great Erica Sanders is, we would have sought care elsewhere.
