Great! I've been going to Dr. Luria for 10 years and he's friendly, thorough, and knowledgeable. Furthermore his staff is very helpful if you're interested in glasses (selection of frames...how things will shake out with insurance...etc.).

The eye exam went well. Dr. Luria explained well what all tests he was going to do and was brief and nice. He definitely knows his job very well. The only thing I didn’t like was that nobody was courteous. Nogreetings and not even a smile. Maybe everyone was in a bad mood or just overworked, but the attitude was just unwelcoming. I am happy as long as I got my eye exam done properly. Also I want to mention that I didn’t get my prescription right away and had to call next day to their office to email me which is done so that’s fine. I would definitely recommend Dr. Luria for his knowledge base and skill.

Dr. Luria made me feel completely at ease during my appointment. It was my first eye exam so I didn’t know what to expect, but he calmly walked me through it. He knew right away what was up, and worked withme to explain what was happening with my eyes. The salespeople in the front were also very patient and helped me select cute frames from a wide variety of options.

Dr Luria is the best. He is very thorough in his exam and great at explaining everything as he goes. He takes his time and is sure to answers any and all questions. All too often with health professionals it feelslike an assembly line, like they're already half out the door to the next thing as soon as you walk in. When you are in the room with Dr Luria it feels like your time and his focus is on you and your health not whatever is next in his calendar.

I loved David and the other staff in his office. They were super friendly, gave me good takes on glasses and kept finding new pairs to suggest, and were incredibly knowledgeable about things. I was the first appointment of the day,so we started slightly late but David was really personable, got to know me, and walked me through what all of the machines were doing, the differences in the latest models of them, and exactly how to think about various different health indicators. I learned about tear duct health and the risks computer usage poses to that for the first time, and he also checked out my final frame picks. Overall it was a great experience, and I was really pleased he's both got the latest gadgetry and is a really helpful and engaged practitioner as well.

Steve at the front desk was very rude and unhelpful and started the experience poorly. My appointment was at 10:00, which is when the store opens so I waited outside until let in. Kerry was helpful and kind. Dr. Luria ignoredme upon his entrance and continued ignoring me until I walked into his exam room. Most of the exam was him explaining his gadgets. Overall, I got my prescription and did what I came for.
