“I had an amazing experience with Dr.Brisco, she is not only a great doctor but also a wonderful human being. She is incredibly experienced and intelligent but also very empatheric and full of humanity. I had tried contacts before but couldn’t tolerate them. She not only found a design that worked for me but answered my questions and concerns in a way that other optometrists hadn’t been able to. I am so glad that I found her, it really changes your experience of the world and of life in general to be able to see clearly on a daily basis.”
