After my eyes were dilated, Dr. Levitt came in to do the exam. He was really excited that Coach was there and told me about his two yellow labs. He even showed me a photo of them. It was very cute. At one point in the exam, Coach went to sleep with his head on Dr. Levitt's foot. At the end of the exam, I took Coach's coat off and let him and the nurse pet Coach. Coach had been a very good boy (as opposed to the dentist's office!).

He was disappointed.

All in all, I would highly recommend that everyone get their eyes checked at Newsom Eye Center (I went to the one on Swann, formerly Guggino Eye Center, 3115 W. Swann Ave. 813.879.7711) and I highly recommend Dr. Michael Levitt. After all, I found out the doctors who pass the opthalmology boards face the same sort of percentages of passing that our guide dog puppies do: 37-38%. And Dr. Levitt passed! He knows all about tough programs and has an appreciation for what our puppies will be going through and he loves labs. And he's a good doctor. Pretty much the whole staffed loved Coach. What's not to like?
