Office was moderately busy when i got there. I checked in early and was seated in the waiting area for a 5pm appt and was not taken back for my tests until just after 5:20p, after I went back up tothe desk to ask what was going on. Dr Gross was great but I did feel rushed towards the end of my visit because his cell phone rang (a family member had had a medical procedure and he needed to take the call). Between the late start and the rushed finish, it wasn’t a 5-star visit. Not the end of the world but the patient comes first and it seemed like the one-two punch for a mediocre visit. My last visit was stellar and I guess I had high hopes.

Dr. Gross is efficient and gets you in and out the door. I’m partial to friendlier doctors who engage in conversation which isn’t so much how he operates. However, I didn’t have to wait long and they completed an effective eye exam.

This office is just full of kind people! I definitely was a little unsure about things I should have had straight, and they were so understanding of me bumbling around trying to figure out my insurance plan. You can really tellthey're all friends there and it makes for a very relaxing atmosphere. Amber went above and beyond to help me get cute, affordable frames. Dr. Gross was kind and funny. I was in and out in a timely manner and didn't feel stressed for a second (which never happens for me in any kind of doctor's office!).

It felt very cursory. The optician who read my glasses completely missed that my glasses were progressives. I was asked to come back for more extensive testing. Other than getting a new prescription not much else was accomplished. I’m use to a more thorough visit.

I had the most thorough eye exam I've ever had in my life with Dr. Gross. He spent plenty of time with me going over my prescription. I had no idea my eyesight was so complicated, but he had a solutionfor all my complaints. He also said if I wasn't happy with the prescription that I could let him know. The office was also great, and the staff was very helpful and patient while I was deciding on frames.
