Dr Smith is amazing! He was so patient and made the appointment fun for my 5 year old. He took the time to explain things to me in terms easy to understand.

Excellent care. It was an emergency appointment so I was squeezed in within an hour of my call. However, I was not treated as if I was an inconvenience or that I was taking time from someone or something else. Myquestions were answered and explained, thoroughly. He was very calm in helping me become relaxed and shedding my worries. All staff and his other associate, Dr. Cynthia Bjorseth are wonderful.

I’ve always appreciated Allan Smith’s knowledge and professionalism. I first met him years ago after going to a discount vision chain that just could not get my prescription right. He got it right the first time and also fitted me withmulti-focal contacts so i could still Scuba dive even though i needed bi-focals in order to see the dive computer. The staff is amazing and even my wife gave up on the discount chain in favor of Dr. Smith.

Dr. Smith is simply AWESOME. He is very, very knowledgeable and knows how to solve problems and interact well with his patients. He also remembers his patients (ran into him in the hallway on my way to his office for triallenses and he remembered me and my name!). Also, his assistant, Kim gets kudos for being so charismatic and lovable (yes, lovable). All over another great experience for my yearly exam.

In 50 years of having examinations this was the most pleasant experience I have encountered in the optometry field. Dr Smith was informative, interactive and pleasant. I would return there anytime I need services of this nature. Every stepwas explained in sufficient detail without extraneous information or discussion, one of the more impressive was his immediate documentation back to my family doctor on the status of my retinal exam. I would highly recommend this practice to my co-workers, family and friends. Based on his professionalism I plan on ordering my glasses there although I live more than two hours away. I chose this practice due to their advertisment on the web of providing diabetic eye care.

Optometrist was pleasant and good natured. The technician was also very nice. We did not wait at all. The optician on the other hand was unpleasant and condescending - ultimately provided incorrect information about benefits. Showed us a limitedframe selection covered by insurance but i noticed other frames that would have also been covered. Seating at the opticians desk was not ideal

My appointment was great! My only complaint is that one of the assistants in the lobby was chewing gum very obnoxiously and I found it unprofessional and left as quickly as possible so I wouldn't have to listen to it anymore.

Dr. Smith is great! I started seeing him in 2015 and after only going there for an exam once I scratched my cornea. I called him late at night and was connected directly to him and he had me come firstthing the next morning. He also came in on the following day on his day off to check up on me and make sure everything was healing. The staff is amazing and super friendly! I strongly recommend him!!
