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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
