Dr. Kita is great

I've been going to Dr. Kita since I was a kid, and he is hands down the best optometrist I've been to. Due to insurance changes, I've visited a few other optometrists and always left disappointed. Dr. Kita and his team are exceptional. The exams are thorough and the selection of frames is quite good, with a variety of price ranges. Dr. Kita and his optician are both very friendly and helpful, and I plan to continue going to them for the forseeable future.
