Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Jarrett was very thorough and explained everything in detail. He and his staff were very professional and courteous.
Dr. Jarrett was phenomenal, I was seen quickly and felt that my eyes were thoroughly checked out. Highly recommend!
Dr. Jarrett and staff are great!
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 not slow, just very thorough. He has a lot of patients, and he takes time to talk to and listen to each one.
Very professional staff and doctor!
He was pleasant and provided quality service timely. The Office Staff was AWESOME!!!
Very thorough. Good doctor. Staff very professional
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 am going to another ophthalmologist to find out in detail what is going in with me.
He is efficient and to the point. Excellent!
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 nurse was 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.
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.
Very thorough, professional, and attentive. Staff is great. They answered questions, explained procedures, and made appointments to work with our schedule.
Very thorough in his exams and explained everything to me very well. I'd definitely recommend he and his staff.
Excellent. I had something in my eye and he got it out. Just what I needed.
Dr Jarrett was wonderful
Dr. Jarrett is very professional, thorough and efficient, as well as his staff. I feel well taken care of when i go there. Highly recommend him :-)
Dr. Jarrett was so thorough, efficient, professional and nice....and so was his staff. I really liked him and definitely recommend him.
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.
Efficient, professional and friendly.
He has great medical expertise but he is not a nice person. Sometimes he hesitates understanding your condition.
He is a fantastic doctor
Takes excellent care of his patients. Does all the right tests. Pleasant place and courteous and efficient Dr. and staff.
Very good; appointment was approx. 10 minutes behind but the Dr. saw me quickly and thoroughly. I was pleased with the service and the effort.
The office staff and his assistant were friendly and efficient. Dr Jarrett was the professional I expected him to be. The appointment was flawless.
Only waited 3 or 4 minutes to be called, and I was a new patient.
I liked doctor Alan very much, the staff was very helpful and the office is quiet which was great since i had my baby with me and could sleep through the waiting time which was short also. Definitely will be going back
Wonderful doctor - gets to the point but has an excellent "bedside" manner.
Very efficient, good medical care
Excellent. Couldn't have been better.
Dr. Jarrett is very nice doctor, i like him and will come back and recomment to my freinds. Office services are preferrsional and kindly. just the waiting time is too long for my Mom aged 91. We came 9:30am, left at 12:30pm.
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 the doctor 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.
Although I am not a new patient of Dr. Jarrett's, he is an Excellent Ophthalmologist that is very caring & considerate of his patients. I saw him the first time in 2004 for glasses. My wife sees Dr. Jarrett also.
He was very personable and the wait was not bad at all.
I have the opinion that he is the best focusing on the issues. Staight to the work ....and incredibly knowledgable.
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.
Didn't explain injury, seemed unconcerned
I was very pleased with his professionalism and expertise.
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.
Very concerned and great explanation to what I had
Most awful experience. Gave us a prescription, we came back a month later with the wrong prescription and he made us pay for the glasses for the second prescription. Will never return.
Long wait but good staff and proficient and efficient physician.
Dr.Jarret verry nice guy. Thank you
He was very thorough.
Professional. The office is clean. I didn't have to wait long.
unsatisfactory and very expensive
The staff did not identify themselves nor were they particularly friendly. The procedures were not explained. I felt like I was imposing on them and was not comfortable with the whole experience. The doctor seemed very thorough but rough in his exam.
I couldn't have gone to a better Doctor!! Thanks Dr. Jarrett.
