Went in for an annual eye exam and contact lens fitting - nothing spectacular but nothing bad either. She is friendly and prompt. I'm not sure if she wipes down the equipment (parts where chins/ foreheads touch) after every patient... Sawsome weird foundation looking mark on one of them.

Dr. Calliope is great. I've seen her a few times and would highly recommend her practice. She's always been able to see me right away, and takes her time with you to make sure your prescription is perfect.

I got a routine eye exam for a new prescription. She was very thorough and great at her job. Everything was fine, except that she led me back out to the waiting area and immediately took the next patient without a goodbye or anything. Bedside manner is eh.

Easy access on Beacon with lots of street parking. Dr. Galatis was friendly and took a great history. Exam was easy and quick, and she explained my astigmatism beautifully. Never felt rushed and she helped me pick frames for my new glasses.

Dr. Galatis is extremely thorough in her assessment, takes the time to explain issues and recommends the best course of action. I have been visiting her for the past few years and been getting great results. She's helped me lower myprescription significantly and keep my eyes healthy. Highly recommend her!

After a scratch persisted on my eye for about a month I went in to Dr. Galatis. She was shocked I had waited so long, but very kind and attentive. I saw her every other day for about 2-3 weeks and(as a recent college grad and fairly broke), she only charged me once, more concerned with getting my eye back to normal than getting paid. After 5 months (I had been diagnosed with a corneal ulcer), I can finally see (I was practically blind in that one eye) and can now wear contacts again. I should've gone in sooner, but Dr. Galatis was wonderful, helpful, and kind.

I called letting the office know I was running 5 minutes behind, the woman who answered the phone (who also helped me when I got there) was very polite. This was my first time seeing Dr. Galatis and I was ableto get a complete eye exam in about 30 minutes. I enjoyed this visit and will be returning for the next eye exam I need.

Her office can be a little less inviting than others - it's small hole-in-a-wall type of office and it's kind of messy (lots of papers and folders stacked around the office) which I felt a bit iffy about initially. But thedoctor herself was very kind and thorough which I think is the most important part anyway. In the past, when I get contact lens fitting, I usually have gotten a sample contact with some solutions etc... which I didn't get at this place/ wasn't part of the lens fitting process. But I'm not sure which is the norm so whatever. The nurse didn't give me a copy of my prescription?! Which I only realized later (partly my fault I guess) so I had to go back to get it. I ordered my lenses through them via my insurance, which I had to go pickup - the contacts were delivered within a day and they were accommodating about my late pickup after work, by putting my lenses in a bag and leaving them in their mailbox for me to pickup at my convenience which I liked.

Dr. Galatis was very professional, informative, comforting, and kind. She spent a good deal of time giving me a thorough evaluation, and was able to clearly explain to me my options. She wrote out a prescription for my lenses, and helpedme pick out a great pair of glass frames. It was obvious to me that this doctor knew her stuff! I recommend her highly!

This was my first visit here. I'm not from the area and needed more contacts, and this location was close to my apartment. I got to fill out the form ahead of time online, which was really great. I'm always abit nervous that I'm not going to know some vital piece of information at the moment, so it was nice to have that taken care of. Dr. Galatis was very kind throughout the exam. She offered tips for maintaining my eye health, and the exam didn't take that long. I'm not sure if I'm going to be staying in the area or moving elsewhere, but if I'm still in Boston, I'd be happy to see her again.

Dr. CJ was absolutely phenomenal. I hadn't had my eyes checked in several years and she quickly discovered I was wearing a prescription that was way too strong for my eyes. She helped me pick out some rockin frames and Ican't wait to get my new glasses. Friendly, professional, and thorough service. I plan on going back to see her in the future.

She is a great Doctor as well as a great person. She explained everything well and at the same time a very avid listener to your problems or issues. Her receptionist is GREAT & unlike other doctor's who usually talk asif they don't want you there. In conclusion I will recommend her to everyone I know.

The Doctor was very nice and did a great exam. I had difficulty with ZocDoc, though. I filled out my info to have sent over on Friday for a Monday 10:30 appointment. It was not there. Mass Health told me Ihave some Eye coverage by certain providers. ZocDoc showed me as covered, but when I got to the appointment (quite a drive), I found out I was not covered. I paid out of pocket, which was a drag.
