Dr. Vesselle has been a favorite physician since I first saw her several years ago. She is patient, caring and very knowledgeable about treatments for dry eyes. She goes to extra lengths to discuss visual problems and suggest possible treatments. I feel like she "really cares" about me. I have recommended her to at least five friends. .
