Optometry reviews in Tega Cay

  • I've been seeing Dr. Burt for annual eye exams for several years.  He is very thorough, always takes his time and never makes me feel rushed as we're going through the exam.  He asks questions to be sure he identifies any existing issues I may have, and always addresses them to my satisfaction.  His staff is welcoming and friendly. I highly recommend this provider.

  • Our first appointment which was supposed to be for 1 hour
    ended up being 3 hours and a charge of $995.00 for an evaluation.
    We scheduled an appointment for consultation to discuss the vision
    therapy my so would need.  The plan that
    Dr. Haleo came up with was for 9 months of therapy (72 Visits) at a charge of
    $14,475.00 which he wanted paid in full before services were rendered. Dr.
    Haleo also asked that when we filed the insurance that we should bring our Explanation
    of Benefits in for him to see (if he was charging enough) this sent up a red
    flag because if you want to see the EOB you should file the insurance for me.
    Of course we started looking for a second opinion because after
    all who pays for a service in advance.
     
    Dr. Haleo?s office contacted me via email stating?
     ?It?s now been a couple of weeks
    since you met with Dr. Haleo to discuss your son?s diagnosis and treatment
    options. Since we have not heard back from you we can only presume that the
    costs for care were outside your means at this time.

    Therefore,
    we would like to offer you the opportunity to consider a shorter program of
    only 4 months of care and address one or two major components of your son?s
    diagnosis at this time. Additionally, we can help you make low monthly payments
    extended for up to 60 months.

    With a
    small down payment, your payments would amount to approximately $178/mo.*
    Or we can
    offer you Zero percent Interest payments for up to 1 year.* ?  

    I responded by telling them that we were seeking a second
    opinion. And their response was?
    ?I understand.
    There are no contradictions to the
    diagnosis, just a more complete list in addition to your son?s ?Ocular Ataxia? (Nystagmus) since this evaluation was more extensive of the
    binocular function of your son?s visual system.
    For a second opinion of a doctor
    with Dr. Haleo?s qualifications, you should seek a Board Certified Fellow from
    the College of Optometrists in Vision Development rather than from a Pediatric
    Eye Surgeon or Regular Eye Doctor. 
    Otherwise you will be getting an opinion from an eye doctor who does not
    do the special testing to uncover ?all of the diagnoses? and who does not offer
    treatment in this area of expertise.
     
    You may find a Board Certified
    Doctor in Vision Development from the national certifying body at
    www.COVD.org 
    Let me know how else I may help you
    in the future.?

    I responded?.Please do not make assumptions about where I?m
    seeking a second opinion. I am well aware of what I need to do; I?m not new at
    seeking second opinions. I?m offended that you think that I am not capable of
    finding a qualified professional to do an evaluation or give me a second
    opinion. I?m also offended at the comment you previously made ?Since we have
    not heard back from you we can only presume that the costs for care were
    outside your means at this time?. However I do know that when seeking a second
    opinion that it?s not common practice to take advice from the person?s opinion
    I?m seeking a second opinion of.
     
    Please note that my son has  XXXXXXX and not ?XXXXXXX?. (My son?s
    conditions were incorrect in the above email from Dr. Haleo?s office after she
    stated that there were no contradictions). I'm pretty sure that I know my son's condition better than someone who saw him once and I would know if his diagnosis contradicted what we already know.
    However we found a Vision Therapist in Charlotte and we are quite happy with their service which is considerably cheaper than Dr. Haleo and they do not expect payment up front.  
     
    Dr. Haleo?s office responds?
     
    ??.Didn?t mean for you to be
    offended. That was not my intention.
     
    I used a standard draft and only
    trying to get you in the right direction of ?eye care professionals? as many
    patients are not knowledgeable about the differences for the different
    specialties.  
     
    Have a blessed day,? 

     
    I cannot believe that Dr. Haleo would say those things to
    any potential patient and expect to get their business. What kind of business
    has a ?standard draft? that insults people? I would not go to him no matter
    what kind of education/experience he has.

  • They're great. They're very professional and very much up to date on their equipment. The physicians are very professional and the entire organization seems to be in tune on how things should work. They're very thorough and very prompt.
    - Charles B.
  • The doctor there, Dr. Washington, found glaucoma in my eyes, when another eye doctor told me to just use eye drops. I was really impressed with Dr. Washington. She was really good. They do extensive testing. They did a ton of testing and they found the glaucoma. They saved my sight. I was very impressed with it. The staff were all very nice. They were very kind and helpful. She's excellent. The office environment was great.
    - Carolyn T.
  • Doctor and staff were very professional. They explained what they were doing. Just had an eye exam, so can't rate their products. Their honesty is admirable; they told me I didn't need a new prescription for glasses! Would use them again, and plan to do so next year. Would recommend Palmetto Eye to anyone, based on my totally positive experience.
    - John F.
  • While I would rate the doctor highly, and the staff member who helped me select the glasses, I really can't recommend the practice. The office environment is a real turnoff. It's located in a house that smells bad, very musty. Old carpet and curtains. It just felt kind of sad.
    I drive by this office frequently on my way to work. They have a sign out by the road advertising the practice, that used to be a very nice sign. However it got damaged several months ago (maybe during a storm?) and is in pieces by the road. I wondered why they hadn't fixed it, but now that I've been to the office I guess they don't really value those things.
    As a patient it makes me wonder about the quality of my care if they don't take care of the office itself.

  • Good & friendly Optometrist.
    Easy to get & change an appointment.
    My only complaint is that some of the admin staff are a little difficult to deal with & one in particular is not well trained and seems to make mistakes regularly.
    - Vitali P.
  • The desk staff was perfectly nice. It is a very small office and located inside of WallMart, which wasn't my favorite. The optometrist was not a good communicator, however, and it made me feel like I would not like to bring my family in to him again. He is probably very competent, just not able to communicate well - which to me is important.
    - Derik M.
  • Doctor did a very thorough job, and took the time to discuss any concerns I had, to really discuss my medical history regarding my eyes, and also to make suggestions. Didn't feel like she was in a hurry to push me through, felt like she really cared about resolving any problems I was having with eyes, and matching me up with contacts that would work well for me.
    - Amy S.
  • I had gone to 4 other eye care facilities. There was never a satisfactory solution to my sight problems. The contact lenses did not fit my needs or I had to use reading glasses in addition to the contacts, etc. Many times the particular office was not open when I needed them. Then I went to Dr. Bansal at Carolina Family Eye Care. Their hours are patient-friendly. Dr. Bansal has a wonderful chair-side manner. He is thorough, patient, listens very well to the patient's concerns/needs. I have complete confidence in him. It took a few times, but he was able to find a solution to my eye care needs. I am very happy w/the contacts he suggested, as well as my new eye-glass prescription. I am grateful that I could go back to him and say, can we try something else? He was always so willing to help me. I would recommend his services to anyone!!
    The only fly in the ointment here is his staff. There are only two people among them whom I would trust to get my information correct and to be friendly and helpful. I especially say this in regard to Stacey. She is wonderful. She is always professional and totally knows her job. She understands that the patient comes first. She knew exactly how to adjust my progressive glasses so that I was looking through them at the right spot. There were some serious errors with my prescription on a few occasions; however, Stacey and Dr. Bansal took care of the situation with no extra cost to me. I trust both of them.
    I don't know why his staff, as a whole, do not meet the high standards which he sets himself (as well as Stacey). This is the only area with which I have complaint. Do not let the recording you may get when you call there put you off. Do go to Dr. Bansal - and ask for Stacey if you need assistance!
