Well I am horrible at getting on and doing these, but if it weren’t for reviews I would never have come here. So now I will pay it forward so to speak. Dr. T and his staff are awesome. The atmosphere they foster, truly genuine care, and conversation are a delight. I mean a Dr. who can quote “Emperor’s New Groove” is a hands down win. My kids love coming even though one has no glasses yet. I value a Dr. whom I can ask questions and doesn’t think me dumb for asking and I have yet to feel like I am over concerned or ignorant. Also they are efficient, I am not stuck there forever, they move you through effortlessly and courteously, I think we had one long wait but it was hardly a pain because of who they are and how they operate. For those who don’t know what do for an Eye Doctor choose Family Focus Eye Care – R.M.S.

Wonderful experience each year I visit. Dr Taylor, Beth, Kristen, Brittany and Tracy are great to deal with, and always answer all my questions with a smile. I’ve now gotten my wife to switch over to Dr Taylor’s care. Highly recommend. – Joel

We have been patients of Dr. Taylor and his staff for five years. We have lived in many different cities so we’ve had lots of eye doctors; none were as good as Family Focus Eye Care. They are consistently excellent in all aspects: the eye care itself, state-of-the art equipment, the inventory and purchase of eyewear, friendliness and professionalism of the staff, appointment management — everything. When we first moved to Salem we used a provider closer to our home, but soon found Family Focus well worth the extra drive time from our home. -LesLee

I have been going to Family Focus Eye Care for over 20 years.  When Dr. Taylor took over the practice, the transition was seamless.  I appreciate the upgrades he has made and the care he takes when I visit.  Besides that, he’s funny.  But my very favorite is Ms. Barbara.  She is friendly and generous and extremely good at her job.  I never have to worry about what insurance will cover because she has it all figured out.  I also never have to worry about choosing the right frames because she is quite good at knowing what fits me – physically, style-wise, and personality-wise.  Barbara is absolutely the best!! Wanda

What a great office! What a great team! Doctor T sets the tone of cheerful, helpful, caring, competent, and his staff joins in. I have never before had so much fun getting an eye exam and new glasses.  – Marjorie

I’ve never enjoyed or looked forward to getting my eyes checked, until now!! Most friendly and welcoming environment and staff. They’re all so caring & fun! – Hannah

I was a patient of Family Focus for many years before Dr. Taylor assumed the practice. I have to say I am even more happy since the transition. He and his staff are more than wonderful. Dr. Taylor has always taken the time necessary to explain my eye diagnoses to me in a way that I fully understand. He has the latest in technology which makes things much faster and much more accurate. I had an emergency this last Friday and they got me in same day. I didn’t think it was that big of a deal and almost cancelled but they encourage me to keep the appointment especially before going into the weekend if for nothing else than to make sure I was ok. It was a good thing I did. I had a large abrasion on my eye and something was actually embedded that had to be removed. I was nervous and Dr Taylor was not only wonderfully calming but very confident. I didn’t feel a thing and he also came in on Sunday to follow-up with me to make sure my healing was on track! People, you really don’t need to look any further…just save yourself some search engine work on your computer and just go to Family Focus. Dr Taylor and his staff are phenomenal! If there were more than 5 starts to give, I would! – Laura

I have been a patient for a couple of years and would definitely recommend Family Focus to anyone looking for an eye care physician. They have the latest technology which makes the appointments quick and accurate. I love not having to have my eyes dilated! Dr. Taylor and the staff are all friendly and helpful. I have been seen on time for all of my appointments. – Megan
