I brought my 4 yr old twins to see Dr. Skpitz for their first eye exam. He was so good with them that they felt right at ease and had us all laughing the entire exam! I was very thankful forhim and the very sweet staff that didn't panic when my kids wanted to try on EVERY pair of glasses they could reach!

The visit went very smoothly and Dr. Kats was very professional. The appointment was for vision exam and eyeglasses. So I will not be able to rate the facility until I receive my new glasses and see if the prescription is acceptable.

The doctor was so kind, professional, and friendly! Her and the staff made us feel so comfortable and they were very helpful! After my exam, we worked with a team member named Noemi who helped find myself some glasses, talk aboutcontacts, and she took her time with us. I am so glad I went here! The office is very nice as well!

I thought she was great--professional, thorough and answered all of my questions. I was not so crazy about the person who helped with my order of glasses. I also wanted to have new lenses in 2 pairs of glasses i own,and she avoided my questions and seemed not interested in having them do the new lenses.

Very good and honest. Doesn't try to sell you on products or services you don't need. Respected my budget when choosing frames, and was able to give me all my insurance info right away. Everyone was also very kind and friendly.

They only problem I had was the waiting time. They said they had a problem with their patients, but what bothered me was that other people that got their after me went before I did and it just wasn't that fair.Other than that it was great. I will be going their I just hope the wait time isn't the same

I was 1 1/2 minutes late because I was not able to find the place. once I got there I was greeted nicely and they still attended me. The doctor was so educational on letting me know what was going onwith my and my daughters eye. I was so grateful and blessed to be there. I will totally recommend this place.

the visit was ok. wait was reasonable. It was strange that the contacts dont get shipped to your home. Rather you have to go pick them up and no one told me that part. Never had to go back to Docsoffice and pick up my contacts in the last 10 years.
