Online paper work never went through so I had to do it all again when I got there.. doctor Horak was a little rough and distant.. he did very little explaining of what was causing the symptoms and more on what he was prescribing me..

Dr. Horak was friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. The only disappointing part was the small office, lack of waiting room, and long wait time. I was the last appointment if the day so I guess they were running behind. Everyone I encounteredthere was friendly and helpful. I might give them another chance.

Nice place, location was decent. Traffic was horrible right in front of the office (right off Windy Hill rd) Staff was nice. Paper work was easy. Waited about 40 minutes after my appt time before I was seen by Dr. Horak.Nice man, seems like a good doctor. Explains his process to you and will work with you on certain areas. All in all- a nice place, fair experience.

They rushed me in to the appointment before finishing to check my insurance's vision coverage. On ZocDoc they advertise themselves to contract with BC/BS which they don't in reality it turns out. They then charged me an unreasonable rate forthe uncovered eye and vision exams. Without asking me Dr. Horak tried to implement an expensive eye exam procedure that isn't covered by any insurance companies. I had to insist multiple times on being examined using the standard method instead. I felt taken advantage of. I would strongly recommend that anyone who decides to use this OD call ahead to make sure that you aren't taken advantage of - that they contract with your insurance and that they don't implement expensive, uncovered tests.

Dr. Horak was extremely pleasant and professional. After my eye exam, he took the time to explain what his findings were in a way that left me feeling educated about my eyes. I arrived for my appointment on time and thewait was very minimal before one of his office staff members took me back to begin my appointment. I even purchased a pair of glasses that I love from the assortment of stylish frames the office offers. The office atmosphere was very warm and inviting. I would highly recommend!

Overall the visit was not an uncomfortable experience. My appointment was at 9:30am, yet upon arrival I was treated as a mere walkup - appointment time was not honored. Dr. Horak's exam and accompaning test were quite thourough and I waspleased with the quality of work and his attention to my concerns.
