Dr Vilinsky and his staff are very friendly and welcoming. They also validated my parking. The only downside to coming to this office was the wait. I was 30 minutes early for an appointment, waited for over an hour and wasout the door AFTER being called within 30 minutes or so. Overall I spent a little over 2 hours at this office which was packed upon arrival. I would definitely come back to this location maybe just schedule an appointment if needed in an earlier timeframe

Overall I had a good experience during my appointment. The staff was extremely pleasant, the doctor was very thorough and I felt very comfortable. The whole experience was very smooth. The wait time was a little more than what I wouldhave liked but wasn’t unpleasant. Overall I recommend and will return for my next check up.

Dr Vilinsky was very professional and informative. I went in to the appointment with some concerns but after the Dr explaining what was happening to my vision was normal and apart of the aging process. Thorough exam of my eyes werenegative for disease just needed glasses. First glasses in my life but atleast I will look cute in them and nothing serious to worry about. I recommend him to everyone. Very educated and kind Dr who has great bedside manner ?

He was very knowledgeable and professional. He answered all of my questions. He also made sure I picked the right frames for my prescription because I use bifocal glasses. My prescription is very high which thickens the lenses. I am sohappy with the service that I received here. Thank you so much.

Dr. Vilinsky was very friendly and approachable. He is very accomplished and skilled in his profession. You can tell by his demeanor that he cares about the experience of his patients. Although his staff was very friendly, there was a slightmix up with my appointment, which caused me to be seen a bit later. However, that was no major issue whatsoever. I recommend this office to anyone without hesitation.

Doctor V and all the girls were so nice! I had never worn contacts before but they were able to answer all my questions thoroughly. They also let me practice putting my contacts in which was great for a newbie likeme. If you have any doubts about seeing Doctor V just forget them, this office is the absolute best.

I walked in after booking online for a contact lenses fitting. When I walked in the woman was extremely rude and told me contacts were not covered by my insurance. I asked why they would allow me to book for themand she replied with "I don't know." Looks like they need to update their system and let people know Contact fittings are NOT covered.
