"Transferred here because it was closer. was recommended to us. After his initial examination, Dr. began injections" of eyelea, a new treatment which is stronger and lasts longer than previous treatments. He was very competent.

"Dr K. Takes his time with each patient and enjoys a challenging diagnosis. He also will give you a detailed description of your condition. This is great but occasionally" makes for a little longer wait time. Well worth it though..

If you’re thinking of skipping your annual vision test, examine these reasons to have an eye check up, even when you see clearly.

If your optometrist has ever asked you, “Which is clearer, one or two?” you’ve had a refraction. Here’s how this vision test helps you see clearer.

Was scheduled for surgery after a 3 minute examination. Dr. was brusk and did not answer any questions. He seemed in a hurry to get to the next appointment and more interested in getting a surgery scheduled than with what the injury really was. He said the eye would be unusable for 3 to 6 weeks after surgery and there might ...More be lasting side-effects. Went to another specialist for 2nd. opinion who treated the injury without surgery. Recovered full vision in only four weeks. Now have complete recovery in that eye. I would not recommend Dr. as he seems more concerned with making money than the health of the patient.

The check in process was very easy. They got most of the needed information when i called to make the appointment. I also called in my insurance information as well so i didn't have to fill much out when i arrived and i was a new patient so that was nice.
the check in staff was very nice as were the assistants that got me prepped for the ...More exam.
The optometrist was very friendly, she did not act like she was in a rush to get tot he next patient. she made sure that i had all my questions answered and wrote out my prescription.
i will definitely return and use this office for my annual eye exams.

Made appointment three weeks in advance for routine eye exam with dilation. The latter element was a precaution to check for any complications from Type II diabetes. Initial exam was performed by a Nurse Practitioner (may have been a physician's assistant) who determined that a slight change in my prescription was needed. Dilation eyes drops ...More were administered and I returned to the waiting room for 20 minutes. Dr. then examined me, found no issues related to diabetes, and issued prescription. His time with me was less than 10 minutes no additional tests or devices were used. (Note: This was not an "initial exam" - I had seen this doctor previously.) I have no cause to complain about the routine examination. But I was astounded when when I found out what the charges were: $418.00! (The exam was $393.00 and the lens determination was an additional $25.00) My insurance company (a well-respected plan with a major carrier) informed me that the "usual and customary" fee for such services in the area is $160.00. This office charged me three times that amount! As a further clarification, Dr. is an Optometrist (general eye doctor) and not an Opthalmologist (specialist in surgical care of eye health problems.) Clearly I have no one to blame but myself - I should have asked what they charged in advance. But I won't make that same mistake a second time, nor visit this office again.

He has been my optometrist for the past 30 years. Never a disappoint with his professionalism. He not only has the best up-to-date equipment, but is always up to date on his profession and enjoys being at the cutting of his profession. within his professional eye-care organizations, he holds many top rank positions. His personality ...More is calm and caring. He and his staff belong to the Organization, whose volunteers provide free glasses to the people of the world. He will answer any question. You never feel hurried or cut off. You can't beat the best in professionalism coupled with great caring for you as a person.
