Personal Statment

Primary eye care isn’t boring; I knew I wanted to help people see from a young age. And I love it, still. It’s my goal to make every patient feel at ease. Making them feel comfortable helps me get to know them and understand what kind of care they need.

    Dr Crutchfield always explains, and asks questions. She never acts rushed even though I'm sure she is pressed for time on many occasions. She is the reason I have continued to return to UK year after year.

      My only complaint is that my eyes dilate VERY EASILY and stay dilated for hours after the visit. There has got to be a better option for someone like me. From my 8am appointment, I had the lights off in my office until almost 2pm!

      Several issues related to my health had changes since my last checkup which resulted in several tests being required during my visit that the team didn't expect. I could tell they had a busy clinic that day, and I'm sure the unexpected tests added complexity to their management of the schedule, but Dr Crutchfield and the tech adjusted and ensured I received the tests and made it seem seem less to me. I appreciated how professionally they handled my situation on such a busy day. I felt valued as a patient as a result of their actions.

      Dr. Barbara Crutchfield is very thorough, empathetic and congenial. You never feel foolish for asking her a question. Her answers are straight forward and she is reassuring (when warranted). That latter part is important because sometimes doctors can come across as dismissive of their patient's concerns.
