What Our Patients Are Saying

    5 star review  Medical office was clean, techs followed protocols, nurses were kind and skilled, eye doctor was helpful and insisted on extracting all my questions which led me to ask one whose answer was useful and reassuring. Can’t ask for more effort or better service.

    5 star review  Before Dr. Karlin retired, he told me that my new optometrist would Dr. Brown and that I would be very impressed with the care I would receive from him. Dr. Karlin was right. Dr. Brown is exceedingly knowledgeable, professional and thorough. Just what I have grown to expect from Nittany Eye Associates.
