The sit down with Dr. Cimbak went well. He was professional and seemed very technically knowledgable. All the problems happened after the good eye which might be due to the competence of his support staff. -Delays getting new eye glass lensesinstalled into glasses -Multiple failures to return phone calls -Getting a different story every time (different people?) about the status of lenses, contacts, and billing.

The staff in the office was very helpful. Dr Cimbak did a thorough eye exam for me and answered all of my questions. When I mentioned some issues I am having, he told me the causes of the issues and what to expect using plain language so I could understand.

The receptionist was pretty rude and curt when she checked me in. I felt very rushed through the whole experience and thought that Dr. Cimbak should have taken more time to listen to my concerns. I'm pretty sure I ended upwith the wrong prescription because my vision hasn't been the same since I was there.
