She mixed a lot of medical science with a touch of professional magic to resolve a long standing conflict with my vision and prescription. Highly recommended, verify her schedule so that you see the right optometrist.

The visit was terrible. The staff was friendly and the doctor was thorough and personable. However, my reason for such a poor review is the WAIT TIME. Absolutely unacceptable that I spent exactly 3 hours in the office from start to finish. I arrived 15 minutes early and checked in right away. It was over an hour until I was brought back for eye tests. After I finished the exam with Dr. Onyenekwu, I waited an additional ~20 minutes for the script to be printed. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this place to anyone. The wait time should be tightened up with better workflow so that patients can be seen in a timely fashion. Three hours is outrageous. I am disappointed to leave this review, everyone is nice, but my time is important.

Dr. Onyeywas jncredible but I wasn’t too fond of the lady selling the glasses. She was a big pushy. I asked for my medical records and she was so adamant that I could not get them because no one ever asked before. Another thing, she told me my eyes was horrible after the doctor and eye though otherwise. Why would she play with someone emotions like that? Was it just so I can buy some glasses? Anyway , I will be back because I love the doctor and the tests were non invasive

This was not the doctor that I was seen by. The doctor was ok but the rest of the staff in the sales I wasn’t crazy about.

The employees are very kind, they found me the perfect pair of glasses before I'd even seen the doctor. The actual appointment was fast and easy. The doctor was kind and explained everything very clearly.

Amazingly thorough and passionate doctor. She was quick without being rushed, charismatic and educated. The wait was only long because I saw the assistant first for some very thorough testing, and then waited again before I saw her. Only downside in this office is that the staff will pressure you to buy glasses there and be rude and frustrated with you if you decline.

The only comment I need to make is that the doctor listed here isn’t the doctor I saw - although, he was really great.

The staff is out to hustle you. Know your insurance plan thoroughly before arriving to challenge them on their hustle to charge you again. The OD listed on here is not who saw patience the date of my appt either.
