“ I was referred to Dr. Harf by friends who were very pleased with both his professional skill, the clear helpful information he provided, and his personal caring interaction with his patients. In addition, the entire staff was both pleasant and knowledgable about their work. Of special mention was Joyce, the contact lens specialist. I have worn contact lenses since I was 19 years old, well over 50 years now, she was one of the very best encountered in regard to her competence, attention to detail, and excellent results. ”
