★★★★★ When it comes to getting glasses, I can be quite a difficult patient. I get nervous (white coat syndrome) and talk too much, which is irritating to many health care practitioners. I've been wearing glasses since the fourth grade, but now that I am almost 70 the prospect of cataracts has arisen. I am trying to heal my eyes using nutrition and exercise, but in the meantime I need new glasses. Recently, I visited Dr. MICHAEL HOYT of ARTISAN EYEWEAR in Ashland, where I received the most thorough exam I've ever had from an eye doctor. He has all the newest (amazing) equipment, and I felt totally taken care with regard to my eyesight. Dr. Hoyt is highly competent and qualified, patient, compassionate, and FUN, and I recommend him to the Ashland Community wholeheartedly.
