I love Dr. Major. I get frustrated with the wait time and what feels like distractions on the part of thestaff. When I came in, there were no other patients. I think I waited a good 20 mins before being taken in for vision tests. Dr. Major was on a phone call and it took a while before she came in the exam room. Next time I will remember to ask how long I needed to wait for eyes to dilate because that was a good 20 mins until I asked for doctor just as the tech was returning to do final test. And then it felt like a long time that I was waiting for Dr. Major to come back for final look at images. All nice people, but it feels like you are there for a long time when you don't have to be. Allow two hours for the annual check-up, not including time if you are getting glasses. In fact, I would recommend going elsewhere for lenses. I had serious challenges with Rx and lab last year.

Dr. Major was great. She was very informative. However my issue is that each time I go for a ROUTINE EYE exam, my insurance is always billed for a Diagnostic exam. I never come in to complain about a problem, just simply for a routine eye exam. My insurance covers routine eye exams at 100% of the contracted allowance, but my health insurance is charged one fee, then Davis vision gets charged a fee as well. I understand this is a business, but this does seem a little unethical.

Overall visit was a lot longer than with other eye doctors I’ve been to (2 hours).There was nothing done besides a routine eye exam so not sure why everything was moving so slowly. The office didn’t appear to be crowded either.

Dr. Major and her staff were great. I didn't wait very long, but had a chance to look over new glasses options while I waited. Her tech staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The office was very nice and clean with lovely decor. This was the first office that I had been to that actually instead of using a physical way to check your retina, used a photo, which I think is much more reliable and very easy! I also like to be able to see what is actually going on myself. The optometry staff was great as well and I ended up not only getting prescription sunglasses, but a new set of regular glasses as well. I recommend her and her staff.

My first visit there was very pleasant. The exterior was well done and well maintained. As well as the interior of her office complex. Very professional, the staff were very helpful, and all had a great attitude and well mannered, and professional. There work ethics was explicit. Dr. Archima Major is a sweetie, treated me with so much respect, she is well groomed in her profession, and trustworthy, I will recommend her to my family and friends. Her main concern was not only my vision problems, but she is taking care of my whole well being and health concerns. She is the real deal, oh and did I say kind, yes, very kind and knowledgeable. I just love her, she is remarkable.

Dr. Archima is phenomenal, and I appreciated her professionalism, and expertise. Unfortunately my contention is with my inability to receive me glasses. When I went to retrieve them I was told that they were left at another location and would be sent to me. I have called the office numerous times to receive an update because I am still receiving messages to come and get them in-person. Unfortunately, I have not gotten in touch with anyone in the office, nor have I received a call back.

Dr. Major is awesome. She did a thorough exam and got to the bottom of some issues I’ve been having and even took it a step further and explained to me how some other things were being effected that I didn’t even realize were related. She didn’t just check my eyes she really educated me on some other health issues in our short time together I really appreciated the information so that I can make the changes for a healthier lifestyle!

Dr. Major is very knowledgeable and good at her job, but her service with children isn’t the greatest. She need to have props/toys to get a child’s attention. Then she needs to talk more gentle to the kids and explain fully to them what’s she’s doing and what she needs them to do. One of her staff members had a bit of an attitude when your trying to explain to her about how your medical benefits works (that convo went south). So after I got what we needed I left. My husband was very unhappy with the service as I was a little disappointed myself. Unsure if we’ll go back even tho the doctor is knowledgeable about her job.

This visit was absolutely mind blowing.It felt like a hands on experience with my eyeballs. I was able to see pictures of the different layers of tissues surrounding under my eye and get a very detailed explanation of the problems that occurred in the past and will occur in the future if I don’t tighten up on my diabetic conditions. I even received a treatment plan to refresh my insides by clean all of the backed up waste that is causing my cells not to function properly and can’t wait to see and feel the results of being close to toxic free.

She got my eye prescription wrong, the technician was rude, and her contact lenses she gave me were uncomfortable - they were suppose to order a different kind and call me when they came in, so I could stop by to pick them up and try them out; however, I never heard back from her office, so I decided to take the financial hit and go to another optometrist, who has been fantastic.
