The appointment was for my son. The doctor was very friendly, courteous, treated him with respect by explaining everything so my 11year old could understand. We were in and out. We're not pushed to get glasses there., they even adjusted the ones he had. We will definitely recommend this office.

He's always friendly. You don't feel like you're at a medical appointment. His staff is always more than happy to help adjust my glasses and/or sunglasses, whether or not they're from their office. Plus who wouldn't love a place that DOESN'T dilate your eyes?

Even though I had only seen him once before almost 2 years ago, Dr. Smith greeted me like I was an old friend. His support staff was extremely friendly and had even prepared all of the paperwork and insurance information theday before. The entire visit was seamless and enjoyable from start to finish. Not only my vision, but also my day was enhanced by Dr. Smith and his team. If you have eyes, you need to pay them a visit.

I underestimated Boulder-Denver traffic in unexpected snow and showed up late. Dr. Smith's staff was extremely understanding when I called ahead and Dr. Smith went out of his way to stay late and give me a thorough exam despite my tardiness.Street parking was a breeze and I got a prescription and ordered frames before the night was out. Thanks to everyone for coming together to make it happen!

My visit to Dr. Smith's office was great. There was little to no wait time and the office staff were fun but professional. I've just switched insurance and they went through each option I had for glasses and contacts with mynew plan which was incredibly helpful. Dr. Smith answered all my questions in an informative but understandable way. I'll definitely be returning and would recommend them to friends and family!

This is the BEST optometrist office I've ever been to. Friendly, fast, and efficient. They use the latest technology, which means no puffs of air and NO dilation. You can also make appointments and complete your paperwork online at your leisurerather than spending an extra 15-20 minutes in the waiting room in the middle of your busy day. I would highly recommend Dr. Smith!
