I've been seeing Dr. Budge since 2005 for refraction and new eyeglasses prescriptions.

I hope he doesn't plan to retire any time soon!!

04/27/2017

Dr Budge sent us to the ER for an urgent MRI because he thought he saw swelling of optic nerve, which could be from a brain tumor. After spending 9 hours in ER, the MRI showed 100% normal with no issues. Why would a doctor send you for an urgent MRI if there wasn't a pretty definitive diagnosis. We will not be rescheduling with Dr. Budge!

06/17/2016

He explained everything I had questions about. He also called and left a message on my phone regarding the best eye allergy med to buy. He certainly went above and beyond the call of duty. I was very happy getting my eyes checked by him.

06/18/2016

Unless Dr. Budge was having an "off" day the day of my appointment, his bedside manner was lacking, and he spoke in low tones and was hard to hear. It was disappointing to say the least since he was recommended by Dr. Liu.

07/18/2016

Always helpful and answers all my questions

06/08/2016

I have seen Dr. Budge for years and have always been very happy with his service. He is always professional and courteous but what I really appreciate is his warm, friendly demeanor.
