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.

Dr. Major was great. I wasn’t too happy with how long I waited as i was the only person in the office the entire time. The process for choosing frames and lenses was also too long.

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.

Dr. Major was great however her front desk receptionist is very deceiving. When it came time to choose my frames, she was unable to assist me because she was unfamiliar with insurance. She asked me to leave my bank card informationwith her while Dr Major was away and assured me nothing would be charged to my card without first discussing it with me. Well low and behold the following weekend I received a statement in the mail. Upon calling the office I was assured the transaction would be cancelled and I would not be charged. However, once again I received false information because my card did get charged. I then left a voicemail requesting a call back which never happened. After speaking with my bank and the insurance company I finally called the office again and still continued to get mixed stories from the front office receptionist, therefore I requested Dr. Major to call me back herself... I am still waiting!
