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, andprofessional. 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. 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’teven 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 fullyto 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 thatoccurred 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 topick 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.

I enjoyed the doctor's demonstrated intelligence and helpful explanations; she made the experience a lot less frightening and painful than I was expecting after avoiding the eye doctor as I have. All staff was exceptionally friendly and experienced;receptionist is especially genteel and polite. Framer/assistant was very patient and helpful in frame selection. Office is beautiful and well-kept. I am happy to have found this treasure of an eye doctor so close to home! I will be revisiting.

At first I was happy to meet her and to give her business; her being a fellow black woman. The problem there was that she and her receptionist were so unprofessional and abrasive over the phone and in person. She reallykept me from a job opportunity that had a deadline. She refused to give me my own medical records and questioned me about everything from why I needed the records to who was I giving them to. It took over two weeks for my glasses to finally be ready. I've never been put through so many hoops as she has put me through. When I finally came to get my records and speak with her about what I needed, she refused to come out of her office and speak with me. Her receptionists said she was on a call, since I was an unexpected visit. She was supposedly on the phone for over 30 minutes. I even heard her assistant knock on her door and she didn't answer. Overall, I would never reccommend her or go to her again. I still haven't been given my own records that I've been requesting for over a week. I plan to further report her. She will regret being difficult and unprofessional.

I truly respect Doctors like Dr. major! Aside from her being very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. She took her time to explain some eye complications with their causes/symptoms. She cares about her patients’ health and alwaysprioritizes their well being. I wish other doctors took this responsibility seriously like she does.

I took my 6 year old daughter and my 5 year old twin boys to see Dr. Major, and as usual it was an exceptional experience. Just to summarize, Dr. Major is one of those you would call a rare gem.Her professionalism, her knowledgeability, and and her hospitality are all impeccable and extraordinary. The kids loved it there too with all the fun books and coloring. Thanks for being different, and for your dedicated service. We need more doctors like you.

Initially I had no problem with her for about 2 years. Why she acted as she did, I'll never know. During an annual appointment (Spring 2017) I was made to wait for more than four hours, twice. Though the insurance wasnot the problem, my employer's insurance carrier had been changed. Though I was still covered, they tried to get me to come out of pocket knowing this. Each year I was entitled to and received two pairs of reading only, glasses. Long story short, but including all important details, Dr. Achima Major charged contact lenses (for someone else) to my new carrier, knowing I don't wear them and when I tried to get glasses the carrier said I had no more credit for the year. It had been used up. The office person, Irene, blamed it on the doctor who refused to come to the phone for at least a couple of months. She absolutely refused and we were able to trick her to come to the phone during a conference call with me and the insurance carrier, who made her remove the contact lenses. The whole scenario went on about three months. I still don't understand what that was about. I went to her for at least two years. I do have proof of what I am saying also. She also was charging my Medicare for tests she had not performed or at least not let me know about and would not give me any type of report of what tests were supposed to have been performed or their results. I pleaded for quite some time but needless to say... we're through. Go figure.
