Verified Patient Reviews
It all felt rushed when I was with Dr. Jefferies after waiting for nearly 2 hours.
Dr. Jefferies is friendly, and explains everything he's doing and looking for during the eye exam. During the eye test, he's thorough and tries to help you find the clearest options. His staff are friendly and professional as well. As long as I'm living in the Marietta/Smyrna area, I'll be going back to Dr. Jefferies for any future eye-related concerns.
I did not have to wait. I arrived a little early and was seen right away. Dr. Jeffries was very professional and provided adequate information about the process. The receptionist was very good. V.M.
Bryan did a great job! His receptionist was very kind and I was helped on time. I enjoy the details and Bryan was kind enough to give me a detailed explanation of what he was looking for and how it was related to my eye. Highly recommended!
The best part was the lovely lady at the front desk, who was polite, and prompt and very nice in general.
Efficient, and thoughtful! After some tests, referred me to a great retina specialist, who was able to schedule an appointment for a few days later.
Great experience. Very thorough exam. Decent glasses selection. Would highly recommend.
The office did not open on time, there was a bit of a wait, but the staff were friendly and very open. I felt comfortable and would I feel as though Dr. Jeffereies gave me full attention and did a thorough eye examination.
I would absolutely recommend Dr. Jefferies. He has a very relaxed and calm demeanor, conducts a comprehensive exam, and is prompt.
Dr. Jefferies, was a very personal, and easy to talk to. He is very knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend him. Thanks
I had an amazing experience! Dr. Jefferies was very thorough!
My wait time was actually less than 15 minutes. Doctor Jefferies has a professional, but friendly disposition. He is very willing to answer questions and educate, yet easily understood. This is an ideal doctor's office.
Dr. Jefferies works very well with the patients who have special needs. He was patient and understanding, he did not mind repeating himself or the extra time it took to calm the anxieties of the patient!
Dr. Jeffries has a very efficient office. Got me in on time, answered all my questions and did a thorough exam. No hidden charges, no hassles. No extra paperwork to fill out if you do it online. I would recommend him to all my friends.
Dr. Jefferies is very professional and made me feel comfortable.
He was knowledgible and competent with no 'bedside' manner whatsoever. It is upon the patient to establish report and communication. He seems to not comprehend that some of the procedures toward diagnosis are quite painful to the patient. He explained that the sooner I could cooperate with the pain the sooner it would be over. :( I felt that my suffering was an inconvenience to him and his schedule.
He's great at what he does.
An hour had pasted when I finally was called back. The doctor comes to the waiting room and gets you, because he does not have an assistant or any help. He is doing the job of several people which is why everyone has to wait so long past their appt. He has the bookkeeper measuring people for their eyewear and the receptionist dealing with the lenses.(which should be done by an optician) Neither person new what they were doing.
Very good visit staff is very polite and professional.
The staff was nice and courteous and he was very professional.
The reception staff is very nice and helpful. Susan helped me clarify some questions of insurance coverage. I wasn't seen by Dr. Jefferies until 30 minutes after my appointment time, but it may have been because of the delay in figuring out my insurance. I think he started seeing a couple other patients during that time. The rest of the appointment went smoothly. Dr. Jefferies is pleasant, and he was careful to explain what he was doing and why.
He didn't talk much. His demeanor was not pleasant, and he didn't seem to appreciate my business. I had my daughter with me and he didn't seem to like her. He just seemed to have a sour attitude and was not sociable at all. He did perform his job well, so no complaints there. The 2 clerk's up front was very kind and very helpful in helping me choose my glasses and additional add ons. They are the ones who changed my experience for the good, not Dr.Jefferies
I was misled into thinking I was paying for a 6 month supply of contact lenses when I only received 3. I also have contacts that irritate my eye and one won't stay in my eye.
He was very matter of fact and nonchalant in his explanation of a simple glaucoma procedure, he may be very familiar and see it as no big deal, but i am not and info is a vital bit of info regarding laser holes in my eye. Lacked consideration and concern, i felt like patient #540 even though the office was empty.
I wasn't seen until 35 minutes past my appointment time, which seemed strange considering there were only two other people sitting in the waiting room who were waiting for their eye dilation to complete.
I love Dr. J's manner. His office is relaxing and he's consummately professional yet quickly personable.
Second visit to Dr Jefferies' office and have been very satisfied both times. Quick, courteous, and professional.
Not fit for children. I took my 9 yr old for his first ever eye doctor visit because he had some redness in eyes. The doctor checked his vision too and found he needed prescription glasses. He then put the drop that stings the eye (the one they put for further testing and dilation). My son wasn't prepared and started crying. This doctor instead of understanding this child's situation started saying things like this is not normal for a child of his age, he is behaving like a 2 yr old. My son was so scared with the sting (it was something he never got done before) & the doc didn't prep him enough. I walked out of the clinic - more because of the doc's attitude. 2 weeks later I took him to another child specialist and guess what the same drop was used but the doc handled him so well - my son didn't cry and cooperated like a man! So no this doc is not meant to treat children- it was my mistake that I took him.
Nice, friendly, and intelligent.
Dr. Jefferies is very knowledgeable. He is the fourth Opthalmologist I have seen since my retina surgery in 2009, and I like him the most out of the four. He is well trained in his field, and I learn something new each time I meet with him.
I liked that this was a small, quiet practice. I felt like I received extra attention without being rushed. The doctor himself came to the waiting room to call me for my appointment and was also interested in which frames I chose.
Very good doctor very quick and professional
Very nice cozy little office space!
Very thorough, patient, seems interested in patients and answers questions. He doesn't really smile and he speaks with a whisper but I would recommend him. Susan at the front is awesome, friendly, knowledgeable and patient.
Explained things very well
I liked Dr. Jefferies. He was quite personable and seemed competent. He took the time to explain things well. The only criticism I have was that I had to wait 40 minutes after my appointment time to be seen. If that was a fluke and my next appointment goes smoothly then I'd consider this a five-star experience.
He precisely checked my eyes.
Dr Jefferies is a very knowledgeable opthamologist who is all business and thorough. I highly recommend him.
Just did not feel good about the entire experience from the look of the office to the diagnosis and treatment plan that was only verbalized at end of visit! Never left a doc's office without discharge papers before! Glad I went for a second opinion!
Good visit. Very intelligent and personable Physician. Highly recommended.
Dr .Jefferies is an excellent doctor
Mom loved him!
This appt was for my daughter with soecial needs and he was very kind. He aleays explain to her what was he doing, he was very nice.
Dr. Jefferies provided an excellent exam and explained my results very well with ample patience. Dr. Jefferies' receptionist was very pleasant and helpful and had my completed ZocDoc registration ready on a clipboard when I walked in, she could have been a bit better at informing me of scheduling delays though.
Dr. Jeffries is very attentive and professional. Highly recommend him.
I have an appointment with Dr. Bryan at 3:30pm, and I went early to his office like around 3:15pm, and It didn't take long to see him. He was nice, and he explains everything before doing it.
He's the best, I highly recommende him, his office is very clean, he answered all my questions, and the lady at the front desk is amazing, and very polite. I will definitely go back whenever I have eyes issues again.
Got an appt the morning I signed up. Doc was quick, efficient, and helpful.
Laid back environment
Very helpful. Told me exactly what I needed
Dr. Jefferies was awesome, he is very professional. His staff (Susan) was very personable and kind. Smiles throughout :-) My appointment was very thorough and he has great bedside manner. He is a doctor that loves what he does, truely cares about his patients, and it definitely shows. I will recommend anyone to pay a visit.
Customer Service was great from the front desk to the doctor. I think it all stems from the top. I get the sense that that they enjoy their jobs, which makes a big difference as far as customer service is concerned. The doctor also had great bedside mannerisms and was easy and pleasant to deal with. They put my son at ease and made us feel welcome. Dr. Jeffries is super nice and has a professional crew. My family will definitely go back there again.
Very knowledgeable and efficient. Will be going back.
Dr. Jeffries is friendly and very thorough in exam, diagnosis, treatment and follow up
Very professional and efficient
The staff were outstanding, courteous and professional. Dr Jefferies was very courteous and professional also, he was able to take care of the eye exam and another issue I had with an eyelid chalazion the same day, and very quickly. Highly recommended if you need an Ophthalmologist.
Great doctor! Thorough examination and he was very patient with me during my contact lens examination.
His office was very comforting. The lighting and the staff made my son feel very comfortable. We liked his demeanor. It was positive and he answered all questions. His staff was very informative as well.
Very pleasant office staff. I was late for my appointment AND left my glasses at home. I called the office to explain and was told that it would be okay for me to return home to retrieve my glasses. When I arrived nearly 30 minutes late for my scheduled appointment, I was still seen right away. Susan was very professional and helpful. I also loved her shoes (not relevant). She was concerned about my concerns and helped me find the best option given my circumstance and specifications.
He has a fascinating passion for eyes.
Absolutely horrible, I will never go here again. Maybe I'm just used to going to a professional office where you get treated well, but everything about this place was bad. The receptionist had no idea how to use my insurance and I ended up having to go back to get a refund. Next year I won't be back
Awesome! Very personable and great professionalism on behalf if the doctor. Well dressed. Entire staff was cordial, friendly, helpful and nice to deal with. The office was also clean which was one of things I noticed right away upon my arrival. Highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for eye care.
Staff is very pleasant and pretty quick!
He was very efficient, informative and straight-forward, He was willing to listen, was responsive and explained procedure thoroughly. Overall, I had a very positive experience.
Not a pediatric opthalmologist
Very helpful receptionist called after I made the appointment to help me with directions. I had to wait 22 minutes past my appointment time, despite arriving ten minutes early to complete paperwork. Dr. Jeffries was very through and explained several possibilities, plus asked if I had any more questions.
Wonderful experience. Comfortable atmosphere. Great staff. Very nice people. Would recommend to anyone.
Dr. Jefferies was very professional and informative. I will definitely go back.
Highly recommend Dr. Jefferies.
He knew there was no treatment available for my eye issue, yet insisted on doing a full eye exam, including dilation, in order to be able to treat it. I repeatedly told him I just wanted to be seen about the eye issue, which turned out to be nothing - and he charged for a full exam! With no treatment or remedy. Total scam.
Dr. Jefferies is very professional and did an excellent job.
Extremely thorough exam. Highly recommend.
I appreciate that Dr. Jefferies spoke in terms I could understand and follow. He explained what each test was looking for, and how to evaluate the results. He took his time, and I never felt like he was rushing to get done, even with a late afternoon appointment. He was personable, and professional....that's a refreshing tandem when it comes to MDs.
My visit with Bryan Jefferies was great. I would recommended him to anyone who needs to see an eye doctor.
Eye exam was quick and easy! Not a bad visit to the eye doc by any means. Everyone was curious and professional. And despite scheduling the appointment the day off we were confirmed to visit!
My visit with Dr. Jefferies office was quite pleasant and informative. Jefferies and his staff were very happy to answer all my questions and concerns and assured me they could assist with any further questions or concerns I should have when ordering my new contact lens.
Good doctor. More waiting time.
It was less than I hoped. I went in with a problem with reading, he checked my distance; told me to come back for medical on Monday and didn't check the near vision. Will not go back!
He is very professional and kind
My daughter went to this doc office about a year ago. He is not very child friendly. Not much convo. Straight to the point. I scheduled another appointment a year later. I scheduled the appointment on Tuesday for the upcoming Friday. I called Thursday before the appointment to confirm my child's appointment. I left work early and took my daughter out of school early for this appontment. We got there and waited about 15 minutes before being told the doctor no longer accepts my insurance! I wish they would have told me when I first scheduled the appointment or called to confirm.. Also he kept referring to my child being a 7 years old. My daughter is 9! Read her file!
Great Dr. He explained everything to me and I left very happy
The only thing I didn't like was the wait. I was the only one in the waiting room and still waited 40 mins before I was seen.
I found Dr. Jefferies very professional and thorough in my exam. His staff was very cordial and helpful.
It was a great experience for me and my child. I loved that I was able to complete my paperwork online.
The guy loves what he does and that's very important in any career let alone a medical profession. Probably one of the most knowledgeable doctors in respect to his field that I have met. He gave me plenty of time once I made it in and was very apologetic about my long wait, and providing an acceptable explanation. My eyes are very important to me and I would trust him with their care. I'll continue to see this Doctor.
Dr Jeffereies was personable, professional, and knowledgeable. He explained all tests/procedures before they were done, and his office assistant fully explained the differences in lenses and cost options.
HE IS A SERIOUS PERSON, VERY, VERY PROFESSIONAL. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Excellent reception. Dr. Jefferies was very nice and professional. I will visit him again if I need.
All was good as expected.
Excellent service; very professional; would highly recommend him!
Old lab equipment, did not diagnose a quite obvious case of blepharitis-- simply told me to eat flax seeds for my dry eyes
exceeded my expectations,
It was great and I learned some new things!
Extremely Thorough! Very impressed with reception. All questions were answered. Felt confident I was in good hands with this doctor.
It's always pleasant...
He was kind of rude!!!! Not kid friendly
The lady in the front was awesome. The doctor was nice and professional.
Very knowledgeable, personable, and thorough. This was my first time using him, as I had to locate a new Ophthalmalogist for in network insurance reasons. I was very skeptical that I could find another Dr that would match up with my previous doctor, someone knowledgeable, thorough, and personable that would take the time to complete the examinations and tests that was a necessary requirement for me from my previous doctor. I told him what was going on and I'm proud to say " I feel very lucky right now"!! Y Evans
I thoroughly enjoyed my office visit with DR. JEFFERIES today. He's very personable, informative and patient. He is obviously very well educated and well thought of amongst his peers. I made a follow up appointment with him for next month. Thanks again ZocDoc for helping me find another very ethical and professional doctor. Jill Elliott, Attorney, Atlanta, Georgia.
Dr. Jefferies is very thorough and conscientious in his treatments and explanations.
Did all the required test. Excellent doc
Visit was great. I'm just waiting for them to email me my itemized receipt so that I can submit my expenses for flexible spending.
He was awesome and very knowledgeable. He made me feel comfortable and explained everything to me.
Very professional doctor.Very thorough...So he does not do small talk but who cares?i would see him again.
Dr. Jeffries was very patient and I was impressed with his thoroughness and the time he spent with my daughter..His optician is extremely sweet and helpful...I would highly recommend their services.
Doctor knew his stuff but personality needs work. Not greeting, not really explaining what was going on. Didn't answer our questions. Bragged about his education and knowledge. He seemed like he was mentally somewhere else. I will not be going back to this doctor. There was a reason was his office was so empty. Very bad choice. He needs to be a people person and not just a doctor.
Very smart man. I took my 8 year old boy with Autism to have his eyes checked. I could tell he wasn't to keen on children, but he was patient, and did a good job and was extremely careful in diagnosis. Will see him again in the future. His dry attitude is more than worth dealing with because he has such a clear knowledge of the eye!
Very efficient. The doctor was friendly, professional and explained the entire process.
He was very thorough and very knowledgeable! I enjoyed my visit.
I thought it was great! Very accommodating. Very clean office and everyone was friendly. I will be back whenever I need.
Not kid friendly at all. I'm not sure if he was just uncomfortable around children or what but he was not personable at all. He didn't try to get to know us; didn't seem interested in us at all. The receptionist was very nice.
I found Dr. Jefferies to be very thorough. He answered all my questions and made sure I felt comfortable. I definitely recommend him.
Very thorough visit and clear explanations. Only feedback is that Dr Jefferies could work on his bedside manner and interpersonal skills. He is a good doctor but if he brought in some personality he could be a great experience.
Very Relaxed Visit
He is very forthcoming; explaining exactly what he is doing. Asking if you have questions about anything and, if you do explaining well; not being in a hurry. He even gave me a magazine I asked for. I liked him very much and, already made my next appt.
very professional and I am happy to be putting my eyesight in the hands of someone who is recommending the best for me and my sight!
Very professional and very thorough.
Based on past patient reviews and his education on glaucoma, I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Jefferies. He took the time to listen to what I said on my eyesight, even if how I was saying it was baffling to me. Instead of giving me some diagnosis from the hip, he waited until he had gathered information, looked at my eyes, took samples, asked questions, and included me in on the results - basically did what a doctor should do. He made me feel that though I was the patient and he the doctor, we both are involved in the betterment of my eyesight. I did not feel pushed to hurry so he could see the next patient. The frames available were so stylish that I replaced one of my old pair and updated my lenses on another pair. His treatment recommendation for my irritated lashes led to immediate results with a natural remedy. It was nice to have a doctor who was knowledgeable about natural substitutions as well as prescription methods.
Dr. Jefferies is an awesome physician. He is extremely caring about his patient's well being. He is prompt and there is never a long wait to get in to see him.
It was a very complete eye exam. Dr. Jefferies explained everything as he conducted the exam. Everyone in the office was very friendly and helpful.
His assistant is good. Personable and helpful
I recommended my husband to him!
It was good. I ended up getting a dilation at his suggestion which I hadn't planned to do that day but it worked out better as far as my insurance coverage and the time saved and the fact that my eyes really needed a more indepth exam.
Awesome! Very thorough!
Very thorough exam.
He didn't treat you like a regular patient. He made you feel comfortable and listened to you no matter how weird what you were saying sounded.
After recently moving to Georgia, I've found my new eye doctor.
He was very professional, knowledgeable & courteous. He even came in outside his regular hours to help me get my sight back.
Absolutely outstanding. Exam was more thorough than military flight exam for medical certification. Trust me.
Very nice, cares about his patients and treats them right.
Excellent doctor and overall visit!
Very polite, kind, clear on what he says.
Very professional & Friendly. The staff was excellent at explaining the tests I was given which is something nobody else I've seen has bothered to do. They sell Gunnars™ frames & lenses which is a huge plus for me.
Highly Recommend - Great Job!
He is a thorough doctor. Very presentable and easy going. He just didn't give much feedback on any issues (good or bad). He didn't talk much about the results of the test (and this was just a general exam). I had to call back to see what my eye results were. Either way....if you like to be in and out with little feedback then this is your doctor.
It was quick once I was seen. He was very nice and thorough and answered all of my questions. Very clean and professional!
Very thorough and pleasant experience. Only critical comment would be that a bigger selection of frames would be nice.
Pretty chill, to the point. Good guy. Anyone who takes medicaid probably ain't in the business for the money. Bonus: receptionist remembered me on my follow up.
Very helpful, examined eyes carefully. Receptionist was friendly as well. Nice, cool guy. I highly recommend him because this was my first visit to an eye doctor and he made my first visit as comfortable as possible.
Great first time visit! Dr. Jefferies was very thorough with my exam. I will definitely be visiting again.
Wonderful! I can't wait to go back.
The Dignose was correct, as was the follow up. BUT, he planned several follow ups instead of telling me how to dose the medication. GOAL: increase revenue via co-pays. He said he preformed my annual eye exam but when I refused the 3rd visit in less than 2 weeks, he refused to provide the prescription.
Informative. I felt confident that he knew his craft and could assist with the care of my eyes.
planting on having him as my regular doc, and sending my friends to him
Thorough and professional. I felt that he listened to all my concerns and addressed them appropriately.
He answered all of my questions and addressed my concerns. I never felt rushed.
The doctor and receptionist was wonderful.
He was very nice and thorough. He calmed me down about my condition and his diagnosis was right on point and easy to understand.
Very professional office. Fast, friendly service. Thank You!
Dr. Jefferies put me at ease and explained everything thoroughly to me. That's not always the case with doctors. He was friendly and professional. Would recommend him.
Very Professional Doctor and shows a care about his patients. I would recommend him to anyone, the proof is in all the responses left previously.
Nice Dr. Very professional as his office workers. Did advanced checkup and everything went well.
I just want to that for the first time since my daughter has been wearing glasses this is the first time that herself and I was satisfied. Thank you Dr. Bryan for the good work.
Wasn't sure how friendly Dr. Jeffries was going to be, but he warmed up to me and did a great job with my eye exam. He took the time to answer my questions. And he gave my insurance carrier a compliment, which is great because I work for them!
Dr. Jefferies is VERY nice and kind and did a great job.
it was a good and plesant visit
the office environment and the professional attention from Susan.
Very knowledgeable. Small office but able to handle all of my needs.
We got to the bottom of the problem,
My visit was perfect, fast and smooth. I would suggest anybody to Dr.Bryan Jefferies.
They were Wonderful! Patient with my children, helpful with all the questions I asked and very thorough. Thank You so much!
I made my appointment the day before, and was able to see Dr. Jefferies right on time. During my appointment it became clear that I needed a minor eye surgery and he was able to perform it during the same visit. In my case this was very convenient.
They saw me the same day that I scheduled my apointment. He and his assistant were very professional and courteous.
Very thorough* Didn't feel rushed* Asked, did I have any questions* Did not treat us 'less than' because of Medicaid insurance* Was very patient with my Autistic daughter.
Very professional. Very thorough. Nice offices.
very nice person and knows wat he is doing
I was comfortable with Dr. Jeffereies, he took the time to explain the different probable causes of the issue I am having.
Dr. Jefferies was great. It was holiday and Dr. was in.
Dr Jeffries, Was very polite and attentive. He asked all the right questions and answered any concern I had. I would definetly reccommend anyone looking for a good eye doctor and a really nice person, to go see him
He was the best eye doctor we have ever had.He is very nice and polite.
It was excellent. I really enjoyed my visit.
Very good office visit.
probably one of the best doctors of any sort that i have ever been too.i will be usuing him for all of my familys eye needs.
Enjoyed the visit. It was very professional and timely. Very user-friendly service.
