"First time visit to TICHO Eye Associates. Very nice office including its own optical center. I was greeted by the very friendly and helpful receptionist and then asked to wait for a few moments to be taken back. Alyna was my technician. She was very professional, organized and pleasant. She did all my testing and then I followed up with Dr. Sanders. Meeting a new healthcare provider can be intimidating and scary. Dr. Sanders was kind, gentle, thorough and patient. She answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. I would definitely recommend TICHO for any optometry needs. Thank you TICHO!Debra Pogwizd-Schroedle"
