I was able to fill out all paperwork online ahead of time, then got in for my appointment as soon as I arrived. All staff were very friendly from the time I arrived until I left. From check-in, to the initialscreening, through Dr. Smith's exam, and then when it was time to pick out my new glasses. All were very helpful.

Takes the time to make a full assessment. My son has been to many eye doctors and has had multiple prescriptions that have not worked for him from ages 5-7, unfortunately he would always have headaches and feel dizzy. We finallycame across Dr. Smith and my son has not had anymore problems for the last two years now.

Dr. Smith runs a world class operation at Central Denver Eyecare. He is thorough and explains everything he is looking at to his patients. The office is very efficient in every capacity. They also don't push any products at their patients, they only sell you what you ask them for.

Very friendly and helpful staff. I wasn't kept waiting long at all, the eye exam and contact lense were done quickly and I love the new contacts they recommended. They went over my vision benefits for new glasses and helped meunderstand what was covered and how much it would be with co-pays, etc.
