My experiences so far with Berks Eye Physicians & Surgeons have been outstanding. I was able to book my first appointment much sooner than I anticipated, and my examination with Dr. Pierson was extremely thorough. He identified my problem and booked my follow-up with Br. Bronner for that very same day. Subsequently, Dr. Bronner was every bit as thorough and professional as Dr. Pierson and my issue was confirmed and treated immediately. I was able to immediately develop a rapport with both doctors and I could not be more pleased. — James K.

Doctors Calder and Bronner are my heroes! I never expected my vision to be so good!
