Dr. Schermer was fantastic. He addressed my concerns and followed up with me after I left the office by suggesting a product to address one of my concerns. I'm returning to his office next month to have another exam.

Dr. Schermer is awesome...well informed, professional and approachable. His exams are very thorough. He explains what he is doing in detail and is open to questions. The same goes for the staff. I have been a customer since 2008.

Doctor's exam was thorough and included thoughtful discussion of the practicality of one type of glasses vs another type for work and daily living situations. I saw him twice before in the past 6 years, and both other times he was equally thorough and with an equally good bedside manner.

Very thorough eye exam with good explanations of what is going on. I did not buy glasses there as my fashion consultant (wife) was not with me. I may yet. It depends on price. (I am assuming the new prescriptionis accurate as I have not seen any glasses yet.)
