It was the worst office experience ever, the doctor was very u friendly, spoke condescendingly. I had a total on maybe 20min (being generous) actually treatment time and 2.5hrs or waiting around. The doctor knows her stuff but it was not a pleasant experience.

My first visit went well. All of the staff were friendly and personable. In fact, I had a meeting run over and they found a time to fit me in. For that, I am truly grateful. Testing consisted of high techand low tech techniques. Dr. Silver man was very warm and friendly and helpful. I didnt feel rushed at all and she answered all of my questions. One note, the office is sandwiched between the diner and pharmacy so may be hard to find if you are not looking. Also, it is located on the second floor.

Despite the long wait, which was due to several patients being seen, my experience was positive. The office is very clean and their equipment seems updated. All personal were polite and accommodating. The doctor apologized for the wait and was detailed in her description of my pathology.

Dr. Silverman and her staff are wonderful! I was treated with kindness and compassionate from the minute I entered the office until the moment that I left. It was my first eye exam in this office so I expected to bein the office for at least 2 hours (like other places I have been to in the past) but I was only there for a little over an hour. I read other reviews on here and I was a little skeptical that the atmosphere would be similar to that of a factory but I was pleasantly surprised and did not feel that was the case at all. I do not think I ever had such a thorough eye exam from start to finish in my 50 years. I will be recommending to all of my family and friends!

I made my appt for 11:45, but got a call that they can't see me then and had to switch to 11:15. I couldn't do that early but said I could do 11:30 and would try to get there earlier. Ishowed up at 11:20, and I wasn't taken to a room until after noon. There was apparently only one person ahead of me. The first person to see me was really short with me, rude, and really put me on edge. She seemed very unhappy, in a hurry, etc. When the doctor finally came in I found her to also be very intense. She was nicer than the person before but also very short with me. Overall a bad experience. Not nice people, poorly run office and a lot of additional charges your insurance won't cover that they feel like charging you.

I would not recommend her. I loved Tina who works with the glasses. She helped me to pick out a nice frame but I did not like the doctor also there was an extra charge for an eye exam so myinsurance didn't cover it according to them but they claimed to accept my insurance so I felt like it was false advertisement.
