It's so nice to have a front desk person who's been there so long & knows every customer & is truly helpful.  That would be Kim.  Love her.  Dr. Vanray has taken care of my eyes for years.  He's thorough & patient & explains everything.  I trust him, & that's important, because eyes are critically important.  I'm so happy he is in Summit County.  I refer him to my friends & will continue to do so.
