Terrible place to buy glasses. Very poor service, almost nothing to choose from, unfriendly staff who made me feel very uncomfortable choosing frames. I left without my needed glasses. Willer go back.

First time visit for both my wife and I getting our annual screenings. We enjoyed the contemporary and comfortable front room which also has several nice frame displays. Our main takeaway was the high level of service and professionalism fromall three people who helped us including the front desk / checkin / pretesting tech, dr. Betsko, and the framing specialist. Very impressive.

Dr. Betsko is the smartest optometrist I have ever met! She explained my diagnosis very clearly, far better than a retinologist whom I had visited in the past. As a retired physician, I'm a demanding patient; but she blew me away with her expertise!

First, if you're a new patient give yourself at least 20 mins to fill out the paperwork. After that's finished things roll right along. Dr Betsko was very thorough as was her team. All were great and a big help choosingthe best frames for me. A side note: frames are quite overpriced.

Dr Betsko and her staff are AMAZING! They recognize everyone and are super friendly and personable! I was referred here by my best friend and I have no regretted the choice at all, in fact I always refer my friends here.I had some issues with my contacts and getting the right prescription, they made sure that I got the right strengths and were comfortable in them. The best part is my prescription was to a point where my contacts/glasses are deemed medically necessary, Dr Betsko's office made sure I got my year's worth of contacts covered and a refund due on exam fee!

Fantastic experience! My wife and I went in for and exam and new glasses and it was probably the best doctors visit of any kind I've ever had! The staff was amazing, treated us like family and helped with our framesselection. Unlike many, they actually pointed us to what looked good on us and not on price. The doctor was warm and welcoming as well, very efficient and friendly when explaining what she was doing and why. I can tell you we're not planning on going to a different office ever again

Dr. Betsko and her are very friendly and inviting as soon as you walk in the door. They are patient and answer any questions you may have about paperwork, about the exam, or about purchasing eye ware. If they do notknow the answer immediately, they will seek out an answer for you and return promptly. Each step of the exam is explained. The exams tend to be quick and thorough. The office is clean, airy, and inviting.

I have no complaints about Dr. Betsko. My brief visit with her was simple, efficient, and informative. But the shining stars in her office were her techs!! Merna is THE most pleasant woman I have ever spoken to on the phoneand in person. She greeted me right away, had remembered details from our phone conversation and was incredibly genuine when she asks about your day. She was so knowledgeable about the machines used during the eye tests and informed me of everything that was going to happen and the small talk she made with me during our time together was very natural and warm. There is a very obvious connection between all the employees and to me, it seemed like they all get along great and it makes for a very bright and happy office. The tech that helped me look for glasses was also incredibly knowledgeable even though I had informed her I probably wouldn't purchase frames that day, she still offered me the best service she could. Great office. Great experience.
