“My appointment with Dr. Hulse was the best eye appointment I've ever had. He is easy going, punctual and professional. He explained everything he was doing and why he did it as well as making sure to answer any questions that I had. He was not condescending or impatient. I would give him 5 star bedside manner. His staff was very friendly and helpful. They make a fabulous team.”
