Checked in about 15 minutes early, eye exam started almost immediately after I signed the basic forms. Dr Austin was very laid back and didn't give me the feeling that I was being rushed. Will certainly be back.

The office staff was very friendly and helped ease my nerves. The doctor was very nice and didn't make me wait. It was a quick visit but will definitely be back again for an eye exam.

I was not happy with the long wait time, caused by chatty receptionist delaying my intake. Med tech should smile a bit more and bedside manner was stuffy. Dr. Austin is a really good guy and made me feel at ease.I highly recommend. Maybe I just came on a bad day for the other part.
