Dr. Budner was thorough and made sure that I understood everything that he was telling me about my eyes. He took extra time to explain issues that were somewhat more complex and never made me feel rushed or insignificant. I left feeling confident that I had made the right choice in selecting a new eye care professional. L. V.

Concerned about how I felt my eyes progressed since last visit, willing to take time and discuss matters with me. If I have questions willing to take time to answer. Not all doctors willing to take the extra time with patients. Shows he cares for his patients. CHERYL W.

This doctor refused to give me a contact lens prescription due to the previous review I left on here. After my initial appt, I didn't hear back about a follow up after a week. I had to call to set up the appt. I took the morning off to go in and the doctor wouldn't give me a prescription for contact lenses. This was the worst experience I've ever had with an optometrist and I have been happily served by many over the last 20 years of annual contact lens exams. The doctor refunded me, but that doesn't pay for the time I wasted going to his offices twice. Two weeks later, I have no prescription and old uncomfortable contacts.

Dr. Budner has been my eye care doctor for over a decade. He's always professional and informative. Wait times can sometimes be a little later than your scheduled appointment time but most customers aren't on time themselves so everyone's at fault. His staff keeps you informed and they are always super friendly. I would recommend Dr. Budner definitely.

I ended up paying double what I was quoted over the phone for a simple eye exam. I left the office without a prescription because the doctor couldn't figure mine out. I've always been identified with astigmatism and left the doctor's office with contacts that let me see 20/20. This doctor didn't give me contacts for astigmatism and needed to contact my previous optometrist to get my prescription. Over priced for unacceptable results.

Dr. Budner was patient, knowledgeable, and considerate. I have severe myopia and astigmatism and have failed RGP lenses and had difficulty with Toric lenses. He took the time to explain my different options and prescribed me hybrid lenses. My vision is extremely important to my occupation and I am now able to see better than I have in a long time thanks to his expertise. I strongly recommend seeing Dr. Budner and have told my family and friends about him.

All of the office staff are friendly, helpful, and professional. Reminder cards and emails are timely and follow-up awesomely fast. The doctor, his assistant(s), and the opticians all provide clear forthright information to assist patient/clients in personal decision making. This is one of the few practices I have encountered that discusses, nutrition, other health issues, activities, and age in relationship to a treatment plan. Unlike some offices, no one pressures clients. I have been wearing corrective lenses for 50 years and this is the best practice I have encountered. Highly and enthusiastically recommend.

Dr. Budner does a thorough exam and takes the time to make sure you get all your questions answered. I never feel rushed. He also does a good job of explaining what to expect in the future due to aging. He invests in the latest technology to check for eye diseases and to compute accurate lens settings. His waiting room has a TV monitor with informative presentations on different eye-related subjects. He has an optical department to buy glasses and contacts, but doesn't push you to buy there. He emails out a detailed set of information specific to your situation for later reference.

I went here for an annual preventative eye exam. The people at the office were very courteous and professional, Dr. Budner was friendly and efficient. This was all very routine and there were no issues, so I can't speak to how they deal with more complex eye care. But for a preventative exam I can recommend them.
