Everyone is super courteous starting with Mr Hector, he walked me through the advantages of my insurance and the options I had available. Alexis is super knowledgeable on what she does. she pretty much goes over the eyes tests with adeep explanation of each. Dr Patel is a very nice person. she explained me the details about my astigmatism problem. she also walked me through the test results to show there were no more problems like glaucoma or anything. thank God. I highly recommend this place !

Dr. Patel is very thorough and kind. I particularly appreciated that she thought carefully about my options and laid them out for me. Her office was clean and bright and the staff was very friendly. Frank, the optician, spent about anhour with me picking out the right glasses. He was funny, energetic and clearly loves what he does. I highly recommend this place. You won’t find a better eye care center!

Phenomenal appointment! I was taken in right away by the very friendly person at the front desk, who then did the pre-work and measurements. She was thorough, knowledgeable, and helpful. I then saw Dr. Patel right away and she was oneof the best doctors I have ever had an appointment with - knew her stuff, made good conversation, had recommendations, and spoke about contact lenses and vision in a way that was easy to understand and made sense. Great office, great doctor, highly recommended.
