Verified Patient Reviews
The office staff could use some training in communication as far as eye contact, the only eye to eye contact I got was from the receptionist. The tech had her back to me most of the time. For years Dr. Hall has always been fantastic! Wonderful bedside manner and always studies my history before the exam as she makes comparisons to the last few years. I would highly recommend her.
Very friendly staff. Dr Hall was very thourough and informative. I would definitely use her expertise for future exam
This was my second time at Optical Gallery, but first time being seen by Dr. Hall. She was outstanding and I have found my new home for all of my eye care needs! I will definitely use Dr. Hall in the future!
Dr. Hall was EXCELLENT -- she also took the time to speak with our 9 year old daughter, explaining all the equipment and the how important it is to keep our eyes healthy. Fabulous Job Dr. Hall
Everything, from the staff to Doctor Hall, was wonderful. She is very personable and very thorough in going over the results of the exams.
She makes me feel comfortable. I trust her!
She is very through and informative and does not hurry and makes sure you understand. She really is a people person.
The office is very efficient.
Very thorough in going over the results of the exams with detailed information and recommendations. Very personable.

She's very sweet., patient and competent.
Awesome Doc. Always has great feedback and tips/pointers for eye care. Supremely knowledgeable!
Dr. Hall and her staff are awesome. I feel super comfortable, they take care of me every time I go and the atmosphere is great.
It was great
The doctor and her staff do a very thorough exam. My only complaint was waiting 45 minutes for the doctor to come in after the technician finished running tests.
Explained my current eye health very well and provided advice on maintaining healthy eyes.
First time with Dr. Hall (last minute cancellation opened up a time for me before vacation), usually with Dr. Fain. Both are great! Looking forward to Lasik with these people.
This experience with my new eye specialist was awesome and very professional.
They dilated my eyes, recommended cataract surgery, did not give me the info for the surgeon before I left, did not give me the sunglasses so I had to drive home & could not see, but the Dr was nice, I felt a little rushed
When my visit with Dr. Hall was over today I left informed, comfortable, and reassured. I have no complaints with her or any of the staff. Everyone was very nice and professional. Its just a nice office....The waiting room is clean and comfy. There's wifi and lemonade with cookies! If I had to wait I certainly wouldn't mind.
She is a Wonderful Doctor.
Great, no complaints at all!!
Love Dr Hall. She explains everything so you can understand. She puts you at ease.
The entire staff was very friendly! The atmosphere was welcoming and calm. I only waited about 15 minutes before I was called back for my appointment, but do expect to be there a while. I didn't realize how much was involved in the eye exam and then picking out frames (I'm very indecisive). I would recommend Dr. Hall with high praise!
Good visit, she is always very friendly with me and my family. The staff was very nice today, excellent customer service, very attentive, as always.

The atmosphere was inviting. Although the process too a long time, the service and wait time for each area was fairly short.
the wait is horrible
She was very informative and helped me make a decision on what type of care I wanted to proceed with now and in the long term.
Dr. Hall and her staff are always friendly and professional. I love chatting with her, I feel confident I am getting the very best of care and know my eyes are in good hands. She lays out all my options for improving my vision without being pushy, and is very thorough with her examination to assure my eyes are healthy. She addresses any concerns and recommends appropriate treatment in a very caring and professional manner. She's the best!!!

Appointment was changed to Dr. Fain two weeks before actual time, so review is for Dr. Fain. The wait was the big deal today. Everything else went quite well.
Great experience and the reason why I will continue to return for my annual visit. Thank you.

Dr. Hall always takes the time to explain everything and does not recommend unneeded services/products.
Absolutely love her and the whole team!
I absolutely love Dr. Fain and Dr. Hall. I dislike the constant change in reception personnel who never seem to know what actions need to be taken so I may pay for my visit. I'm standing right at the window at all I hear is 50 different versions of "what do I do now?" They are never prepared for me even though I checked-in with them from the beginning. It's as though I caught them by surprise. When I booked the eye exam I filled out info and told them why I was going...why couldn't they be prepared for me? Why does it take ANOTHER 30 minutes to check out? I already sat in the room for the doctor 45 minutes. Also you fill out paperwork/online submit and then when you get to the pre-checkup eye testing room, they ask you all of the same questions and while in earshot of other patients. No, I don't feel like sharing my personal information with strangers. And good luck ordering glasses/sunglasses and getting your order right. it might take 5 or 6 times of showing up in person for them to understand what's put on paper/entered into the computer and what they click on the ordering website. There are SO MANY CHOICES in optometry, its not like they are opthamologists.The only benefit I find with Optical Gallery is Dr. Fain and Dr. Hall, their wide selection of ORDERABLE glasses/sunglasses and the decor/ambience of the place. It's not an extremely convenient location. The staff is not up to par (with few exceptions.) 3 out of 5 stars from me.
Excellent, great! Dr. Hall explains in detail.
Outstanding OD! Friendly and knowledgeable. Office uses excellent equipment for eye analysis. Check in was a breeze using ZocDoc. Very good selection of contacts/glasses. Highly recommended.
Dr. Hall was very courteous and was definitely interested in knowing about any vision issues I may have experienced lately. I had not had an eye exam in awhile, and so several tests were run to ensure everything was ok. The office area was very clean and the staff was very friendly. The office location was also close to my residence. I would definitely recommend Dr. Hall to anyone seeking to schedule an eye exam.
Catherine is very caring and explains everything. I have seen her a few times as well as Dr Fain, and love them both. It's always a good visit with either one of them. My wait time was a little longer than usual, but I also arrived 30 min. early.
Great doc! Great place, good selection of frames! A++
After the appointment I felt rushed. Dr. Hall said I needed to make a follow-up appointment but forgot since I went on to pick out glasses. I felt that was the "main focus" after my appointment instead of making sure the contacts were working well. I didn't make an appointment to follow-up since I had totally forgotten at that point. Dr. Hall is so great as was the lady that also helped with all the testing. After that I felt it fell apart--that spending money on glasses was more important than making sure my needs were met with contacts. I am not even sure how to get the remaining contacts or if the ones I have are "perfect".
It was great.
great and professional
Dr Hall explains everything and is very friendly and professional! I've been to a couple of different optometrists and I would recommend Dr Hall to anyone who'd listen!
This was the first time my husband and I have been to see Dr. Hall and were both very impressed with the whole experience. I wish all doctors were as pleasant as her.

Was very pleased with Dr. Catherine! I have already made an appointment for my husband to see her. The staff were all very friendly as well!
I was very pleased with how thorough my exam was. So happy to find a good OD.
Overall it was very good although when I didn't want to purchase the glasses immediately ofter my visit they were slightly rude towards me. Most of their frames were priced at above $200 and the office visit includes a $20 charge not covered by any insurance apparently.
Very professional and caring
I am very pleased with the doctor, less so with Michael, with whom I worked picking out glasses. It took my repeating several times what type of nose piece I preferred before he stopped showing me others. It was a bit frustrating. Eventually all was well.
catherine was great. super sweet.
She was extremely pleasant and very informative. Will definitely return to see her again.
Everyone was friendly and professional.

I always enjoy my visit to see Catherine Hall. Her and staff are friendly and fun.
This was by far the best visit ever. I love Dr Hall as a doctor and a person, but have always had a problem with the wait. I have expressed this to Dr Hall many times over the years and though it has gotten better, there was always a delay. Today was the first time that I did not even wait one minute. It was a joy to get to my appointment on time and for the team there to be on time too. I had a full exam and was out the door in less than 50 minutes. Thank you so much!!!
My family has been patients of Dr. Hall and Dr. Fain for about 12 years now. We love these doctors and staff.
Catherine is very professional, polite, and willing to take time with me explain and discuss any questions I had.
Very professional, informative and provided me a general overall feeling of consideration and not just getting me in and getting me out. The technician and doctor, in fact all I came in contact with were very patient and warm during my entire visit. I left my appointment happy that I had chosen to visit this doctor and facility.
My first visit and I was welk pleased. Dr hall and her staff let you know what is going on each step. Very nice facility. Bringing my son in next week for a visit

Dr. Hall is an outstanding professional.
my visit was fabulous. She is very personable
I loved her professionalism and sincere concern regarding my vision health. She took the time and explained everything to me.
she is a great doctor..
She is a great doctor. But I waited nearly an hour and a half to be seen. I was shuffled from room to room and forgotten about. It was really awkward and I got so frustrated that I almost walked out of the office. I understand that there was an emergency going on. But someone really should have followed up with me from time to time.
Dr. Hall is so friendly and I feel that she really cares about her patients. Highly recommend her to everyone. Her staff are all great as well.
What an incredable experience! Her professionalism, depth of knowledge and personality made me feel comfortable and confident that my exam and resulting eyewear is exactly what I needed... Wow!
She was amazing dealing with my son who had a TON of energy. He was having trouble doing the measuring for his eyes and she did a special thing that just had him reading letters while she was determining his measurements. It was awesome what she did. He's a always moving 6 year old and she gave him the measurements he needs to help him see an succeed at school.
She was awesome. This was my second time to visit her and I love going there even more now. I have horrible vision and they keep track of everything just to make sure nothing horrible is going on in your eye ball. They even show pictures of your eye to you from the previous year to the following. This step by step process helped alleviate any worries I had about my eye sight. I had a billing issue last year and not only did they give me a 5 dollar credit cause I over paid last year but they waived the 20 dollar fee for eye pictures. This proved to me they knew if they made me happy I'd be coming back to their place year after year and now I'm bringing my children to see Dr. Hall. I've worn glasses most my life and she's by far the best I've ever seen. She's kind, patient, and understanding. This last visit I asked more questions then usual and she didn't show any annoyance with me whereas some doctors I've seen just try and get you through as quick as possible. She didn't rush me at all especially during the last test where they determine your prescription. If that test is ever rushed a person may feel pressured to just say yea number one looked clearer when in reality it was two. So to summarize Dr. Hall is amazing and if you have kids they know how to take care of you.
Dr. Hall is the best! If you need a new eye doctor or even if you don't, SWITCH! She is efficient, proficient and super nice. Very convenient to Dallas, Garland and Mesquite.
My kids required glasses and the selection for kids were more than extremely limited, we left with two kids needing glasses but none being ordered due to the selection....
