“Amazing services performed by friendly staff. I had no idea what to expect walking in, and left feeling like I’d been a patient there since as long as I could remember. The nurses were kind and willing to go above and beyond for even the simplest things, and Dr. Jarvis explained his exam and findings in a way anyone could easily understand. I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to recommend a business as much as I have this one.”

“Everyone at Jarvis Vision Center was absolutely FABULOUS! They were not only clean with proper safety precautions in place, but also so kind and patient. Alicia walked my daughter through her kindergarten exam and made it fun and exciting. She explained everything to my daughter and to me, as a parent, at each step. Dr. Jarvis took great care with my daughter and with me. He did not rush through any part of either exam. He also explained everything about our eyes and took the time to answer all of our questions. I would 100% recommend Dr. Jarvis and his staff to anyone of any age! Thank you for great experiences!”

“Everyone makes you feel comfortable and someone is always asking if they can help you. They give great advice as to whether a pair of frames looks good on you or not. Very knowledgeable staff. Our last appointment they taught my 11 yo son to put in and take out contacts. My son has been a patient since he was 2 yo. My son had surgery at Vanderbilt University on his eyes when he was 1 yo and it took me lots of tears and many not so great experiences to finally find a team I trusted with his eye health and that is Dr. Jarvis and Dr. Williams! You have a great staff! I recommend people all the time to Jarvis Vision. I wouldn’t take my son anywhere else.Thank you for always taking great care of my son when he comes in for appointments!”
