I had an excellent experience with Dr Chhitwal: He was thorough, engaged, listened and provided very thoughtful and helpful information. His technician, Nancy also was quite knowledgeable and provided excellent guidance in picking frames and lenses. It was a great overall experience.

They were perfectly nice, but missed the correct diagnosis and had me treating a viral eye problem with antibiotics. The problem cleared up after going to a different doctor.

Worst experience ever, will not be going back. Was charged an extra over-board amount, and didn't even let me know what it was for. When I asked, they said they have a new fee for contacts, but I didn't even purchasecontacts. I just came for a general exam covered by my insurance with only 10 copay. But they wouldn't listen and will not be going back. Not advised.

It had been about 7 years since my last eye exam and I could tell I might need some help seeing at a distance. Prior to that I had never worn glasses or contacts. Chhitwal, OD, was able to dial inmy vision quickly, and check my eyes for additional problems. Overall the staff was good, and I watched one of the chain managers deal with an elderly lady and she was amazing. Some side notes that confused me: He never really told me what my vision was even though I asked. When picking up my glasses from the front counter, the person handing me my glasses said I had an astigmatism. I was a little curious why this was not mentioned to me when I was being "diagnosed."

He is a great doctor, very professional, caring, considerate, and knowledgeable. The office was nice and comforting. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. My wait time was long but only due to being a new patient with new insurance,and I did not have all of my information squared away before I came. Even still the staff was patient with me and helpful. The only down side to my visit was that not much information about the health status of my eyes was volunteered to me, however I will return and ask more questions next time. Again, this was a really great visit overall, and I will return.

I was impressed by Dr. Chhitwal's knowledge of new developments in the field of optometry. I confess he sparked my interest and did some web searches when left his office to find out more. His evaluation was thorough, practiced and efficient, he answered my questions confidently and clearly.

I needed an eye exam and made an appt to see Dr. Chhitwal. I had gotten laser eye surgery 10 years ago and need to get my eyes checked yearly. Dr. Chhitwal is an amazing eye doctor. He also has oneof the best personalities I have met. He was kind, down to earth and very caring. I could tell he truly loves what he does! :) I would definitely recommend him to anyone I know and I plan to go to him yearly for my checkup! :)
