Dr. Kocher was incredibly helpful and made me feel like my medical concerns were valid. Going to a MD was worth it. The wait was short, their glasses selection was large, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Would recommend, and I am definitely going back. His online prescence is smaller because he is a locally owned and operated small business, but don't let that deter you from his business.
