The office/eyeglass store is much nicer than you think it would be from the street. I was quite surprised when the elevator door opened. The receptionist Nancy is very friendly as well as everybody else I came in contact with there.I had checked in online, but there was a lot more paperwork to fill out with much of the same information I had already given which was a little irritating, but not the end of the world. He friendliness made up for it. :) Dr. Fournier is also quite a nice guy and seemed very knowledgeable about what my problem was and what options I had explaining each one in detail. I didn't feel like he was rushing to get to the next patient so he can make more money like you feel sometimes with doctors. I left the office feeling really good about the whole experience.

Our initial contact with this office via telephone was professional and efficient. Within 2 days we had a much needed appointment. Meeting with the staff and Dr. Fournier was most pleasant. We left the office feeling we had found a qualified,competent and attentive medical facility that would meet our needs.

Everyone was so kind and accommodating. We were seen right away and hardly had to wait between exams at all. So much more pleasant than the "zoo" atmosphere one finds so often in optical facilities. Wonderful experience.

Filled out new patient forms ahead of time. Was taken in by technician right away & saw Dr. Fournier after tests were done. Everyone was friendly & professional. Explanations were given & my questions were answered. My husband & I wereshown a video about cataract surgery. Have future appts. for refraction studies to determine what type of procedure will be best for me & to meet the Dr who does the cataract surgery. Very impressed.

I chose this doctor in large part due to the connection with ZocDoc. I was able to make the appointment on-line, as well as fill out a lengthy health record electronically. Unfortunately, neither of those connections worked properly, and I wastold that the appointment was not available at the time I booked (they were able to accommodate which I appreciate), and the entire health record had to be filled out again in writing (which was frustrating). In terms of the doctor and staff, all were excellent and professional. I will go back.

I made the appt with Dr Fournier based specifically on a friends recommendation. After waiting an hour I was greeted by another optometrist. I explained I made the appt with dr Fournier so he understood and did preliminary tests until Icould see dr Fournier I have had several eye issues in the past two months and wanted to see the ophthalmologist I made the appt with.

The appointment went well. The office charged me for a vision exam that I was covered for, I let them know, but it took me a few weeks to have the money returned. I would, however, use them again.

Because I was traveling Dr. Fournier took my (first-time) appointment at the last minute and then, when I arrived an hour early, his staff worked me in early. The staff, from receptionist to medical assistants, were highly professional. Dr.Fournier seemed extremely competent.. He spent enough time with me to get to an appropriate diagnosis and immediately treated my condition to my full satisfaction.

Dr. Fournier was warm, attentive and appeared to be genuinely concerned about my medical issues.He asked questions and actually listened to the answers.
