Brett-Ashley Palmer, O.D.
“Connecting with patients”
“I believe that patient interaction, empathy, and attention to detail are key aspects in eye care. One of the things I enjoy the most about this profession is getting to know each patient individually and being able to communicate important information to them; whether that be a new diagnosis or the best type of vision correction for their lifestyle. I truly enjoy coming into work every day and helping each patient I meet feel welcome and leave feeling taken care of”
