Dr. Olswing is the most thorough optometrist I've ever dealt with. Her demeanor and attention to detail is more than I could ask for. She has taken such good care of my eyes. It's a credit to the clinic to have someone of her ability working for McFarland Clinic.

Dr. Lesley Olswing might be the best medical professional I have ever been seen by in my life. I admire her technical expertise and professionalism, and how she is able to integrate that into the exceptionally personable manner she has with people. I work in a different technical field that involves working with people in similar ways; and while I think I do a fine job, I quite honestly I leave my appointments with Dr. Oslwing thinking about ways in which I can be more like her in the work I do. That might sound like an odd compliment, but please accept this feedback as authentic admiration and appreciation for Dr. Olswing.
