What do clients have to say about you?

"Dr. Halfpenny has taken care of the eye health of my husband and myself for the past 8 years. She is thorough, compassionate and a skilled surgeon. She and her entire office team have always treated us like family. I would recommend her and her office to anyone!" MK

"Dr. Halfpenny was able to treat a recurrent eye infection that I suffered from for over 3 years. I really felt that she listened to my symptoms and explained my condition in ways that I could understand. I cannot thank her enough for helping me feel better and, most importantly, for restoring my vision." LS

"I had an amazing experience undergoing cataract surgery under Dr. Halfpenny's care. The staff at both her office and surgery center were kind and knowledgeable, and made what could be a scary process very easy. My vision is the best it has been in my entire life thanks to them!" CK
