The office was willing to bring me in earlier than the scheduled time after calling and asking about my condition. That was nice! Most of the appointment was by a very nice OD, Dr. Stephen Arnold. He was competent, compassionate and knowledgeable! Dr. Allison Rand, M.D. on the other hand, spent very little time with me, appeared rushed, talked very fast, and did not appear to have much time to listen to the patient. She seem competent in ophthalmology, so I will return for the follow-up appointment. I will use Rand Eye Institute again for my eye care but I might want to request a different ophthalmologist. I understand specialty physicians are very busy but Dr. Arnold did not make me feel like "just a number" while Dr. Allison Rand did!

As a physician myself I was very impressed with the office and the fact they are accredited by the Joint Commission. This means that they take quality and patient safety very seriously. Dr. Rand was very thorough and had an excellent bedside manner. My only complaint was the wait time - which unfortunately tends to the be the case with most doctors.

The whole visit is lengthy but worth it. You really do get a medical exam on your eyes and Dr. Rand is very knowledgeable and has a great bedside manner as well as all the other doctors in her practice.

Very professional and thorough team! My wait time was long as I came in before my scheduled appointment early for a 'stand-by' appointment (basically, when they could see me). Overall, great experience; very friendly staff!

Please let me explain the wait, during the wait you are taken back and an intense amount of test are done to your eyes, in between each test you are asked to wait. We have never had a check up like this one before. So from the time we got there at 2 (appointment time) to the time we were done it was actually 4 and a half hours, but I will be doing my dads surgery there and could not be happier with the professionalism and care they took to explain his condition.

Dr. Kassidy seemed too young so I was a little nervous, but he seemed very competent and had an excellent bedside manner. I would highly recommend him. Dr. Rand saw me after but for just a short time. Both doctors were great.

The visit surpassed all my expectations. I previously visited two other doctors for the same reason, but neither can even remotely approach the level of professionalism and courtesy one experiences at the Rand Eye Institute. Dr. Allison Rand is knowledgeable, confident, attentive, unhurried, compassionate, and, based on my talks with people on whom she already operated, is highly skilled. People were obviously happy with the results of their surgeries.

I thought all the staff were high level professionals. It was the most extensive eye exam I ever had. I was given several options concerning cataract surgery and each option was explained to me in length. I chose one and will be having that one in the coming weeks.

She was great, good diagnostician. However, by the time I saw her, I had waited 45 minutes in the waiting room, another 20 minutes in an exam room, then after the tests, sat in the waiting room for another 40 minutes, then when all the exams were over, had to wait 20 minutes just to check out and pay! I was patient but it was a bit much.
