The doctor and staff were very quick and professional. It was my first time at an Optometrist but they helped me and explained the process in a simple way. The office was very neat and clean, I would recommend going here to anyone. The wait time was not that long I can't choose right away because I did have to fill out paperwork since it was my first time but I consider next time the wait time will be quicker.

Awful front desk staff. Extremely rude. If you're ordering contacts through them forget it. Urgency isn't there, continually hung up on (get your phones in order!) and never expect a call back when they say they'll do so. While the DR is just okay (I'm seen for about less than 5 minutes) not worthwhile and all the way down in Financial. Yuck.
