  • "I had my first appointment at Sandia Vision Clinic this past Thursday. I was impressed with the quality of service: I was checked in quickly and the staff was very polite and professional. The offices and waiting room were very clean, well organized and well lit. Every one seemed to be in a very pleasant mood and willing to assist me as if I were the only person there. I am very happy to have found such a nice and reliable eye care facility that I can trust. My eye doctor was gentle and very informative explaining everything she was doing during the eye examination. Now days this type of medical service is seldom available and I would like to thank the staff for making me feel well care for. Thank you!"
