Dr. Howard is wonderful! Always professional, polite and personable. I waited about 30 minutes to see the doctor from when I walked in at 9 AM, and was able to leave around 10 AM. Eye exam, ordered contacts, and checked out- all a simple and easy process!

My appointment times were mixed up with what ZocDoc had listed and what the office had, but the staff was very understanding and squeezed me in. At the end of the appointment, Mark helped me try on some frames and gave real feedback about what actually suited my face. I felt very at ease with the whole process. A+ for the whole team :)

I've been seeing Dr. Howard for a few years now for both routine eye care, and more medical eye issues. It's always easy to get scheduled quickly. Dr. Howard is always very personable and informative. She never seems rushed through my appointments.

Dr. Howard and her staff were amazing! From the moment mt daughter and I walked in, everyone was helpful and courteous. My daughter is relatively young (6yrs) but the staff, including Dr. Howard, made her feel so comfortable. Dr. Howard showed great patience in examing my daughter and thoroughly explained, in layman terms, what my daughter's vision issues were. She gave us an action plan to help correct her problem. My daughter loved picking out her new glasses! Dr. Howard and staff are top notch! I highly recommend this office.

Very nice optometry office, many frames to choose from and waiting area is chic even with a high volume of patients. Dr. Howard is knowledgeable and professional, however, the appointment and follow-up seemed a bit rushed and impersonal. Overall, I trust my diagnosis and will return for annual eye exams.

Very nice staff, pre-eye checks were done immediately upon arrival. Dr. was very cordial and quickly performed the eye exam. I was a new patient and decided to give them a shot since I live in the area. It was easy to fill in the paperwork on line before appointment. All was ready to go once I arrived. They have a huge selection of eye glasses with a variety of price points. Very impressed.
