Dr Stein was great!
Wonderful from start to finish. Organized, calm and caring attention. Staff and office was great.
Dr Stein is friendly, professional and efficient. There is never a wait and I'm usually in and out quickly
She was lovely. She had a great demeanor and a warm presence. She made me feel like she cared about checking everything, rather than speeding through the exam. I will definitely go back.
Dr. Stein is really great. She's very prompt, makes you feel comfortable, laughs at your bad jokes... On top of her awesomeness the office is run very efficiently; I was seen right at my allocated time. Can't recommend EyeSee Ravenswood enough.
The staff was very friendly and welcoming. I was able to begin my appointment right away, everything was quick and easy, and no pressure to buy frames from them.
Dr. Stein and her staff are fantastic. The vibe is welcoming and relaxed. I am so glad to have found Eye See Ravenswood, and would absolutely recommend!
Very efficient annual eye exam. Glad that Dr. Stein is in the neighborhood - very friendly and a pleasure to see. The office also makes insurance processing very quick and painless.
Very professional and nice office
Everyone was nice and the place was comfortable. Would definitely recommend.
Dr Stein and Jasper are amazing people. I enjoy every visit.
My visit was great! There was a slight issue with my insurance company and they handled it all for me which was fantastic. The office is clean and beautiful, the staff is professional and knowledgable, and their exam technology is up to date!
I had a great experience at the office. Everything was explained carefully, I didn't have to wait, and there were appointments available on weekends and evenings. The office manager also took extra time to make sure I knew how to submit the rebate for my contacts -- significant savings!
Very quick and efficient. Thorough explanation of what they were doing and why, as well as what the results meant.
I will tell my friends to consider changing doctors.
She was to the point while still being friendly. I especially like that a copy of your prescription is emailed to you and there's no pressure to purchase eyeglasses there, even though their frames were really cute and stylish.
Very relaxed, very thorough, very informative. A+.
Very up to date technology, professional staff.
After resolving scheduling problems caused by only being able to schedule appointments trough ZocDoc because the office NEVER ANSWERS THEIR PHONE, everything went smoothly. This is my ONLY criticism of this business.
Going for my appointments with Andrea Stein is always a pleasant and super easy experience. She is the best!
Excellent visit as always!!
I did have a difficulty finding the clinic but otherwise the experience was good. I was very comfortable overall and was happy to know my eye sights were good.
I had zero wait time at the office. Office is beautiful and up-to-date. Dr. Stein was very friendly and helpful, as was the man who did the initial part of the exam and helped with frame selection. Frames in stock were stylish and plentiful, and they were offering a significant discount off frames and lenses. Excellent service and overall experience.
Dr. Stein was very professional yet a great conversationalist. She made me feel comfortable and got me right in and out. She also didn't try to sell me on anything I didn't need. Her staff is quirky and fun as well.
Very friendly staff and a prompt, thorough examination.
Great doctor. Very friendly and knowledgable.
This is a very well run office. Everyone was friendly, I was seen right on time and my exam was quick, easy and informative. Highly recommended.
I have been going to Andrea for years and she is great. Professional, efficient and covers everything we need. Highly recommend!
very friendly. nice high-tech equipment. they had my (weird) contact Rx in stock. I liked being able to make my appointment and fill out my paperwork online. No trouble with my insurance either.
Highly personable doctor, and front of store manager was incredibly welcoming as well. Store and exam rooms were a bit cluttered with papers and boxes and the wait time was not what I was expecting but neither of those issues will keep me from returning. Great neighborhood eye doc!
efficient, professional, friendly, and informative visit. highly recommed.
Great doctor and office.
Very quick, very personable, easy!
Best optical experience in my life.
Dr. Stein was very personable and helpful, and office staff was lovely.
Had a good experience with Dr. Andrea Stein. She answered my questions, was personable, and explained things well.
Dr Stein and Randy are always friendly and helpful
My visit was thorough and went very smoothly. I like the option of imaging the eye and avoiding pupil dilation. The fact that this was not covered by insurance was explained to me before I chose this option.
Saw me immediately, was totally accommodating regarding my hearing loss.
Dr. Stein was super helpful and e-mailed me to let me know about issues with my insurance before I even showed up for my appointment. I enjoyed my experience.
Dr. Stein was thoughtful in her communication, informative in her approach and had a very pleasant demeanor.
The staff was nice but she gets agitated quickly with how i wasn't able to figure out the machine that takes pictures of my eye. Plus i was charged for things I didn't approve for and had to call them and ask for my contacts prescription that I was supposed to be given right away and paid for. They are not very good at returning calls at all.
Quick visit, very patient and informative. Got some trial lenses to try out for a week with a follow up!
I arrived early and they were able to see me right away. I think I left when my appointment was supposed to begin.
Dr. Stein was really nice and polite and did my routine eye checkup very well. Her assistant was also very helpful at picking my new glasses. Definitely recommend her, especially if you are living in Ravenswood.
Very personable and professional! Great selection of eye ware too!
Pleasant. Personable. Shared some laughter (important to me). Timely. Respectful.
Dr. Stein and her staff are so great with kids. I can't imagine going anywhere else for my son.
Dr. Stein is friendly and personable, seems interested in the patient generally, not just my eyes. The process of the exam was painless and quick, and the instruments they use allowed me to see pictures of my eyes, which she explained well. Randy is helpful at the desk and has been helpful in frame selection and adjustment of frames in the past. He also did my pre-exam and was very clear and direct, which I liked.
The staff and doctor were great. They took the time to explain all the tests and answer questions. I'd definitely recommend them.
Dr. Stein was a pleasure to visit. She was very thorough, patient, and communicated results well. I would absolutely recommend her!
She is great!
Pleasant, relaxed visit. Doctor is friendly and easy to communicate with, and the appointment went smoothly. Highly recommended!
I appreciate Dr. Stein's thoroughness and offering of options as part of the exam. The selection of frames is very good and I appreciate the honest and helpful assistance of the office staff (a straight-shooting guy whose name esacapes me at the moment) in frame selection.
Very professional and thorough. Highly recommend!
I love Eye See Ravenswood and Dr Stein. I have been going to her for years for regular check ups and random eye issues - she is great for both. I would recommend her and her practice to anyone and am so glad to have them in my neighborhood.
I love Dr. Stein! Highly recommend.
Andrea was very friendly and personable. It was probably the quickest I've been seen in any eye appointment.
could you please send me the bill.
I've been to Dr. Stein a couple of times and her and Randy (?) are fantastic.
Great. Seems like Dr. Stein has all of the most modern technology in her office, and she's very nice and knowledgeable.
She saw me right away. She was empathic and provided care without passing judgment. Hours are also fantastic.
She's professional, has great hours and definitely listens to personal preferences on lenses and eyewear. I'll keep going back as long as I'm in the neighborhood!
OD was very thorough in her examination. She took the time to hone in on my astigmatism and dilated for a perfect look into the deepest part of my eyes. Looking forward to receiving contacts next Friday.
I really liked my visit to Eye See. They were friendly and professional. They explained everything that they were doing. Great Service!
She was a very good doctor and pleasant, however she's a little pricy for what I'm used to!
True professional - explains all the steps as she performs them; very informative! Clean office; very friendly staff!
Great service and efficient appointment, highly recommended!
Very nice and professional!
Dr. Stein is very pleasant and accommodating. Will be back for any future vision needs and plan on recommending friends!
My appointment was fantastic. Everything at the visit was totally fine, and I would definelty recommend this doctor to others. However, the email exchanges prior to the visit were confusing, as they seemed to have a different time and couldn't originally access my forms. Additionally, it is a small thing, but the grammar error (wrong form of there/their) did not instill confidence prior to the visit.
The overall experience was great. I will definitely return!
I was very pleased with my first visit to Dr. Stein's office. Everyone was very nice and the appt was efficient.
Good- but wasn't allowed to apply my insurance to buy the glasses that were on sale. I didn't know that Doctors were allowed to limit how you use your insurance benefits.
Always a pleasant visit :)
She was very rude and talked down to her staff. The whole process seemed unorganized. Would not go back.
Dr. Stein is always on time, professional and really kind. She always takes her time to make sure she finds the best option for you whether that is for contacts, glasses or another concern. I highly recommend her wonderful office!
Very thorough exam and friendly.
She was great! Answered all my questions and was very through. I will definitely go back.
It was good - no complaints
I love this doctor - her front desk person is new, though, so that made things a little confusing for check in. She is nice!
Wonderful experience. Easy! Thank you!!
Thorough examination and good explanation of findings. Feel like they will provide good care for my eyes over the years.
Great overall. Nice office, professional and friendly.
Dr Stein was very thorough with my past history and was easy to talk to about my issues. Also, Randy was awesome with helping me choose frames! He found the perfect ones on the first try.
My visit went perfectly. Very inviting from the moment I walked in.
Very friendly and professional
Everyone in the office was very friendly and thorough.
Dr. Stein was fabulous. She listened to what I had to say, actually read the form I filled out with my issues and took time to explain things to me. I've been to a lot of eye doctors and Dr. Stein is in the top 5. I can't say enough good things about her and her staff.
Dr. Colona was very good and informative.
Very thorough and effective, would recommend. Happily answered all of my questions.
Dr. Stein is thorough and personable. Her staff is professional and extremely helpful in all aspects of my visit. They look out for their patients.

Great experience overall. She seems like an excellent doctor.
I think she is a very attentive and thorough doctor. She and her staff were very friendly.
It was a very thorough eye exam and I was very pleased with the customer service I received.
Everyone was so nice from the exam to seeing the Dr & having help on picking the right frames for me. So happy I found them.
She was really nice, and the music was awesome.
Very friendly & personable, didn't rush, explained different exams
She's great. I felt comfy and well taken care of.
My son saw Dr. Colonna at Dr. Stein's office. She was great with my son, they were prompt and very kind.
Dr Stein was nice, but the staff and the owner of Eye See Ravenswood were shockingly awful. I was so offended by the attitude of the owner and the gentleman that worked there that I would never, ever consider returning. I was desperate to leave halfway through my visit. I had to return the following day and brought my partner with me, she was as stunned as I was by the rudeness of the owner and the male assistant. I would 100% discourage anyone who is considering booking an appointment with this store from doing so. I've never had an experience as poor as this.
Dr. Stein took her time and did a thorough examination. It's a nice office and she seems to have pretty modern equipment. This is my second time seeing Dr. Stein and will continue to go back.
Great Experience, will go back and will refer others...
Dr Stein is very efficient and through. She kept up a pleasant conversation throughout my appointment.
This was my second visit to Dr. Stein at Eye See Ravenswood, and once again, an excellent experience! Very pleasant & helpful staff, and a great selection of frames.
Dr. Stein is awesome. She's friendly, honest and in general a pleasure to see. I've recommended her to numerous friends, all of whom have had great luck with her as well.
Very thorough exam and treatment.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They called ahead to get my insurance info and were informed on my plans benefits and actually informed me on what was available.
Great visit. I felt like she really listened to my concerns and came up with some options for me.
Dr. Stein was very thorough as I was wearing the wrong contacts prior to seeing her. She took the time to figure out why and I never felt rushed. She was very nice and personable during the entirety of the eye exam. Her receptionist was very friendly and competent as well. I highly recommend this office.
I always have a pleasant time with Dr. Stein. She is nice and efficient.
Very thorough and informative. I was given more information about the health of my eyes than I ever have been
Very good in terms of eye care. She never actually introduced herself, which was a bit odd, but she dove into the appointment passionately. I'll be back.
Dr. Stein was great! My daughter was a little nervous about getting her eyes examined, but Dr. Stein and her assistant really helped put her at ease.
On time and thorough. Social with a great demeanor. Highly recommended.
I think she is very professional with a nice personal touch. It's nice to have a great eye doctor right in the neighborhood!
