Always nice when one of our former members comes to see us and even better when they are the program. Dr. William Poncho, B.Sc. is an eye doctor. His one office is in Woodbridge and the main one is in the Bestgate Professional Centre, 40 Finchgate Blvd. (corner of Queen and Finchgate) 905-790-EYES (3937)

He brought us up to date on his wife and 2 daughters, (Disappointed no pictures) and a little about himself and his practice, but mostly just answered questions on eye care and the causes and cures of various things that happen to the eyes as we age. Good Program.
