I came here to get my eyes examined so that I can get a pair of glasses. The front desk girl was very informative and helped me through the process of scheduling for an appointment, seeing the doctor, and linking me up with sales men. The doctor did a great job examining my eyes. After my exam the sales men helped me choose the right pair of glasses, I absolutely love their wide selection. They were super helpful and helped me get a pair of glasses that were in my budget. I would highly recommend people to come here if they need glasses. Thank you!

If I could give negative stars, I would. This was the worst experience I've ever had at a doctor's office of any kind. My appointment was at 2pm and I wasn't seen until almost 3:45pm. I was given no reason for the wait. Then after I was given a glaucoma exam, I was sent back out to the waiting room for another 30 minutes. When I complained that I had been in the office for over 2 hours for a routine checkup, the doctor and her staff got defensive and rude with me, even though they offered no explanation for the wait. I left in a huff. On my way out of the building, one of the doctors staff got in my way and then threw his shoulder into me and then threatened to call the police on me for bumping into him. I tried this place because I live 2 blocks away. I wouldn't go back there if I was bleeding from my eyes.

I think this visit was slightly below average. My expectations were higher as far as timeliness and overall treatment as my examination was not fully completed.

Disorganized and cluttered office. Staff wasn't particularly friendly. Her exam was very quick and impersonal. It was clear she was just trying to get through it as quickly as possible. I wouldn't come back here for an exam or to pick out glasses.

Highly unprofessional practice. My scheduled appointment time was completely disregarded; I spent several hours in their office for a routine check-up. Doctor and staff used pushy sales tactics and operated in a very disorganized and unhygienic manner. One such example, I was given contact solution that had expired three years prior. The vision care products they sell are of sub-par quality and they do not stand behind them whatsoever. There are too many options in eye-care providers, I strongly advise my fellow patients to go elsewhere.

The wait to see the doctor was about 45 minutes, and employees could give no accurate time or reasons/apologies for my early morning appointment running so late. Eye doctor was knowledgeable, but not very communicative. While I talked to her to point out things I'd learned from past eye doctors, she hardly responded and just kept working (probably to get me out, since there were about 5 people already waiting in the waiting room). Picking out glasses in this location was a nightmare. After the eye visit, I was directly paired up with a glasses salesman who tried to sell me what he wanted me to have, rather than letting me browse and decide for myself. I was unable to look at anything without him trying to upsell me – on brands, services, etc. When I walked over to the "sale" case to view cheaper frames, he was not shy about telling me that I didn't want those. When I picked a pair from there, he was visually disappointed, then tried to upsell me again. This was NOT a pleasant experience. Please let me pick out glasses in peace!

The doctor is wonderful, but the front office staff is very disorganised. Also, I had to wait over an hour post my appointment time to be seen.

Angelika is excellent! She's very thorough with her examinations and there's a-lot of high tech toys in there. Very good with answering questions and giving feedback which is the most important thing. I felt very comfortable with her and she's hot! ;) The only downside is the wait which was a little longer then I anticipated since I was the only person in the waiting room. I'm assuming the only reason for the wait is probably her preparation before the exams. I would still highly recommend her.

The wait was long, I wasn't sure why as I was the only one in the waiting room. Aside from that, everyone was nice once I had my exam done. The doctor herself performed an eye exam and diagnosed me right away. They had me look at different types of glasses and were helpful in assisting me with the process. Of course they pushed for designers, and had some nice options to look at.

She is an opthalmologist (and not just an optometrist) and is equipped with all the state-of-art instruments to do a very thorough and careful eye exam.
