Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Hapner & the entire team were so kind, professional, warm & informed. I chose this office on a whim because it’s so close to my job, but this one is a keeper. Highly recommend.
The staff and Dr. Hapner were both excellent. Everyone was super nice and helpful. Dr. Hapner answered all my questions and was very informative.
Dr. Hapner was incredibly efficient with my eye exam. I was a new patient that was in and out in less than an hour.
Very pleasant, answered my questions, very professional, very well dressed!! Extremely kind!
Serve staff and service!
It was great. Dr. Hapner seemed very experienced, and was direct and to the point. I was just in for a contact lens fitting and it was all very simple! Would recommend if you know what you're in the office for and want to be in and out quickly. This Accuvision location is less than 5 minutes from my office, so I wasn't away for even an hour for my exam.
He is caring and wants his patients to be happy! He goes the extra mile! ;-)
He was very helpful, gave answers to all the questions with utmost patience. Was pretty quick unlike many other doctors. Would say I will definitely go back and highly recommend.
Very efficient and straightforward
He was incredibly friendly and made me feel comfortable right away. Highly, highly recommend!
Dr. Hapner is very thorough and is great with patient care and concerns. I would definitely recommend him.
Very knowledgable and professional. Great bedside manner. Made thre visit enjoyable.
Dr. Harper is extremely efficient - and I really appreciate this! The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was simply that I wanted a little more time to discuss options, and I feel like I was pushed through the door pretty quickly.
Dr. Hapner is very personable and knowledgeable. He put in punctual plugs for me and it was so easy for him. I'd highly recommend him.
Great experience! Front desk through to the knowledgeable doc! Would certainly recommend them.
Dr Hapner is one of the best in the city. He's charasmatic and explains things to you at a human level. Very positive, very professional.
For a first visit, very quick. Would only have been made quicker if I had filled out the paperwork on time. They were timely, professional, and helped me understand my insurance benefits concisely and well. Will certainly be returning.
The office that I saw Dr. Hapner in was very well-organized and nice. There were several people at the front desk that all made me feel welcomed. I was seen very quickly and assisted with what I wanted - I especially appreciated that they were respectful of my time (I had another appointment immediately after). The machines used at his office were nicer than at other optometrists' offices that I have been to. Dr. Hapner specifically had a very efficient demeanor - he was nice, professional, and very quick, but I felt that he was still giving me the attention that I need for my eye exam. I appreciated visiting this office and I would again. My only issue with it is that it was listed on ZocDoc as a provider that would accept my insurance, but they didn't.
Evan is very professional but very knowledgable. I waited a bit for my appointment but was in and out extremely quickly while still feeling like he was comprehensive in his examination.
Dr. Hapner was extremely funny and very thorough. He was to the point without making the appointment feel rushed. I showed up for my appointment extremely early and he was able to fit me in right away!
Nice guy. The 3D eye mapping was cool.
Great doctor! I'd see him again and recommend him to others.
I received professional and courteous treatment from Dr. Hapner, who explained the process step by step.
Excellence! My fist time seeing this doctor and I am sure it won't be the last! Great service!
He has a very lovely staff and had a clear consultation manner. As a wearer of glasses since 3rd grade, I think he is one of the best!
Great visit. Highly recommend
This was my first appointment with Evan Hapner and I was very pleased. He was wonderful with my children and me. He was very helpful in making sure my contacts were just the right fit. I'm going to make sure I see him in the future. The office staff were also awesome. A fabulous visit! Thank you!!
Dr. Hapner is excellent about explaining what he's doing and answering questions. I was there for a follow up after laser eye surgery and he was realistic and honest about the long-term results I could expect. It felt like two professionals talking about technical work, with no talking down or salesmanship tactics. Refreshing!
Everything was great. It was a very pleasant eye appointment.
He was nice.
Strongly recommend Dr. Hapner and AccuVision! The receptionists are all very friendly and willing to help with my questions. Dr. Hapner is very professional and thorough with exams. The store is well located in the center of the loop (near the river) and the environment is really good.
He's great. Clearly knows what he's doing. Doesn't waste a lot of time. I was in and out. Got glasses picked. Whole thing took maybe 25-30 minutes
Very professional, thorough and pleasant.
Painless!! Everyone was friendly and very professional. This isnt my first visit, nor sure if Dr. Hapner was there about 5 or 6 years ago.
Very through and knowledgable, explains diagnosis very well. Pleasant experience!
Dr. Hapner was extremely patience and professional.
I do not feel that he met my needs and that this optical store has a clear understanding of gas permeable contact lens.
Great - I was concerned about mall doc but really like him.
I was pretty satisfied.
Once I got in to see the doctor everything was great.
Staff was great and Dr. Hapner was very professional. Decided on some glasses and they had them ready in 30 minutes.
He was awesome!
