Verified Patient Reviews
As other reviewers mentioned, Dr. Patel was very prompt. She has a great manner. I was in for a general exam and she did a very thorough job - lot of technology for the tests + a physical exam of my eyes. Nice option of frames and friendly, helpful non-pushy staff. Happy I went!
I've already recommended Gemma to a friend. Great service from the entire team!
Exceptional customer experience with the staff & Dr.Patel she listened to my concerns and recommended what is best.
From start to finish everyone was great, professional and helpful. I would recommend Dr Patel without hesitation.
Dr Patel was great at explaining what she was doing with her examination and how she came to recommend my prescription. I would highly recommend her she knows what she is doing.
She is awesome!!
Appointment was on time and was handled professionally.
Overall probably the best optometrist appointment I've ever had! Nice clean new facility. No wait time. Dr. Patel walked me through every process of the appointment and throughly detailed what everything meant. You can easily see how passionate she is about her work. Very friendly/helpful staff as well!
Excellent service. Fast. She was very descriptive to what was being done, why, and gave great advice.
Very knowledgeable and personable.
Dr. Patel was phenomenall! She took the time to explain every procedure and process. Would highly recommend!
The office was beautiful. Dr Patel and her staff were polite and efficient. Dr Patel explained the different tests she was running and the "why" behind them which is a level of service I have not received during a routine eye exam previously.
Such a great experience. The doctor was very thorough. Only comment I would make is the sales staff was extremely loud in the main area while I was with the doctor. Not very professional in that manner (this is not the doctor but the sales staff). Can't say enough good about my eye exam. The sales staff was very pushy too. I guess why they are good at their job but I probably won't buy glasses there again due to this experience. Will come again for an eye exam but likely not but glasses there.Also, although I bought some glasses, I felt their selection was limited.
Best Optometrist in Atlanta. Can't wait for my next appointment!
Really enjoyed my visit. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a new eye doctor in Atlanta.
