I have been a patient of Dr. Soltys's since I moved to Austin 11 years ago. Back then, he had one office in a small space attached to Barton Creek Square Mall. He has since built a successful optometry practice that spans four separate locations. Although his practice has grown, the service I receive remains excellent. I would recommend him to anyone.
