I give this "company" credit for having the move-the-patient-through-the-process down pat, although the wait time to get the process started is long. The time with Dr. Rudick is abrupt; I tried twice (mostly due to the fact that the locationis convenient). A few fast clicks, a prescription, then off to the next patient. No discussion, no explanation. This does not seem like a thorough exam. I got the impression it is all about getting as many patients through as possible each day, regardless of whether or not they ever come back. I will try elsewhere.

I've been a patient of Dr. Ruddick's since he took over this practice. He did a phenomenal job performing a Lasik on my eyes, that gave me 20/20 (or better) vision for over 10 years. He's patient and thorough during regular eye exams.

I've been going to Dr. Ruddick for several years now and have always appreciated the quickness, thoroughness and pleasant manner of everyone in the office, and of course, the doctor himself! It definitely helps that they are only2 blocks awayfrom my office. I would (and do) refer my friends and co-workers to him.

Dr. Rudnick and his staff, from the front desk to the technicians, are very friendly and efficient. You are moved from one room/test to another with such ease. Each test is explained in detail and any questions patiently answered. When Iregistered upon my arrival and handed over my insurance and ID, the woman at the front desk, I believe her name was Mary, was so helpful in explaining my insurance situation, saving me a potential issue down the road.

It was an hour before I was called, and another hour before I saw the doctor himself. When the doctor did arrive, he spent fewer than 10 minutes with me and provided a diagnosis in direct opposition to the one hisassistant had been discussing with me. Though the office was clean and the staff were very nice, it was a confusing appointment and felt very rushed. I wish I had not wasted more than two hours of my day there.

He’s an amazing ophthalmologist who’s very experienced and always treated me with respect. I’ve been going to his office for years now and each time they’ve provided great service and answered all of my questions. It’s also nice having an optometristoffering glasses in the same office location. Very knowledgeable staff.

This was my first visit. I very much appreciated Dr. Rudick and his staff. I had a new Vision Plan and was nervous about being charged extra fees on my Medical Plan. So I called his office and the staff wasvery patient and understanding. The assistant put me at ease by double checking and confirming that my Vision Plan would indeed cover my annual vision visit. When I got to the office, the staff made it very clear to me if what types of procedures would be charged under the medical plan. I appreciate the staff's clarity and high level of customer service. Will definitely come back.

They did so many exams without asking me and charged me for them even though I have insurance! My insurance covers all the exams and prescription glasses check up fees but it seems like they didn't apply the insurance. What aninept front desk! The doctor was professional with good bedside manner and I'd recommend him. Talk to the front desk about all the services and fees before hand unless you want to get huge bills later in the mail.

I have been going to Dr. Rudick for just about a year and I am not being overly dramatic when I say he changed my life. I have excessively dry eyes and Dr. Rudick recommended getting plugs inserted quarterly to producenatural tears. It is nothing short of amazing! My eyes feel well lubricated at all times. I can wear make-up without fear of it running down my face. In addition to all of that, Dr. Rudick and the entire staff at his office are very pleasant and I never have to wait for more than a couple of minutes. I cannot more highly recommend.

Dr. Rudick was fine if you are just looking for a routine check up. But if you have complicated eye conditions and a very strong prescription, find someone else. I have a very bad astigmatism in both eyes, as well asa prism in my lenses. I have ocular hypertension (a precursor to glaucoma), and while I was given all the routine tests, Dr. Rudick himself only spent about 5 minutes with me, and rushed me through my questions as if I was overthinking everything. I know what my issues are and I was hoping to have a discussion about them. It just felt so rushed I couldn't even think. I am not going to return, but if you just need a very quick yearly ocular check up, I would recommend their efficiency and good equipment.
