“Cannot say thank you to Dr. Syverson enough! I’m from Chicago and was visiting Breckenridge for a wedding I was in, when I unfortunately scratched my cornea really bad. Dr. Syverson squeezed me in between appointments and went above and beyond to make sure I was going to be as comfortable as possible during the wedding. I’ve been wearing glasses for about 20 years and have never received such excellent care, especially from someone who’s not my normal eye doctor. After 3 days I’m finally feeling back to normal. Thank you so much!!!!”
“My son came down with multiple issues with his eye while on vacation. Within about an hour we were in to see the Dr. Syverson and he was unbelievable. He diagnosed the problem, gave the appropriate prescriptions and worked with our Optometrist back home to get my son seen as soon as we get home. He also talked through the problems with my son and I so that we both understood what was happening and what is needed to correct the situation. If we lived anywhere near here this would be our eye doctor WITHOUT QUESTION. SUPERB service. Also, he is going above and beyond (again) to see us tomorrow morning before we leave the area. Just totally outstanding. “
