Dr. Jarrett is absolutely the best Ophthalmologist I have ever visited. He is thorough, professional, friendly, and informative. The only "negative" I would put forward is that you will need to budget 90-120 minutes for your visit; he's notslow, just very thorough. He has a lot of patients, and he takes time to talk to and listen to each one.

He does not discuss the results with the patient at all. He does not answer the patient queries or explain them in detail what they have and what they should do. I would never go to him again. Now I amgoing to another ophthalmologist to find out in detail what is going in with me.

The wait time was too long, despite having (I think) the first appointment of the day. My appointment was at 9 am, arrived at 8:50 am, and I left the office at around noon for a routine check up. The nursewas very professional but I wish she had been a bit more empathetic; in a doctor's office this is really important. Dr Jarrett as usual was very professional and explained his diagnostic. I am debating in my head looking for a different practitioner only because I can't afford half day out of work for a routine appointment.

He has great medical expertise but he is not a nice person. Sometimes he hesitates understanding your condition.

This is my first time writing a review. Stay away from this Doc. If u can. He doesn't even give you a chance to understand what's wrong. Its like a business for him more than a concerneced Doc.

He is very thorough and competent and me quite comfortable. I think the long wait was because it's so close to the end of the year. However, I'm pleased that they chose to fit me in rather than having me wait weeks or months for an appointment.

I usually do not write reviews but this doctor was rude, barely greeted me and my husband and did not explain well what was going on even when questions where asked. We did not get any better advice than what thedoctor at the urgent care was able to give us. The medical problem which causes my husband severe pain is still not solved . I am very disappointed. I chose Dr. Jarrett because he was available on short notice. If you have any other option, avoid going to his office. The office staff was friendly and parking was free.

Doctor wasn't able to diagnose my problem and told to stop the prescription from other Doctor. He wasn't able to detect the Corneal scar and it ended up in the vision loss.

Excellent - however as I arrived there seem to have been a misunderstanding of the time which I had made from ZocDoc at 0930, but they had received from Zocdoc 10:30 - which would have been an issue but Dr. Jarrad kindly accommodated me.
