This is my first time needing glasses and Dr Birdsong and her team made me feel so comfortable! I hardly waited and was given great advice about protecting my vision and understanding my coverage.

Dr. Birdsong was great - very patient, kind, and informative. She convinced me to try contacts. I did not realize however that I would need to pay an additional amount for and I/R (insert, remove) class, which turned out to bea video?!?! The video was no help at all, lasted all of 2 minutes, and I paid more for that?! While the assistants were very nice, I did not feel that they were very helpful. The male was unable to tell whether my contact was inside out or not - so how am I so supposed to tell?! What started as a great visit became very frustrating. I gave up on the contacts and left frustrated and disappointed. Also, when we've seen other eye doctors our insurance covered the cost of the exam. We walked out paying considerably more for the visit for my husband and myself.

Dr. Birdsong was very professional and excellent at what she does. However I am disappointed in how long it has taken for me to receive the glasses I purchased. The office staff assured me it would only take about one weekto receive the glasses and it has since been 20 days and I've had to call multiple times about when I would receive my glasses. For how much I've paid as well as my insurance company, I feel like this should be a quicker process or I should have at least had more communication from the store instead of chasing after the information.

I needed to get an appointment last minute to get some new glasses by year end and my insurance shared this office as an option. Everyone at this practice was awesome! They took care of my requests and also offered greatsuggestions and education I really needed. Grateful to have found you. Thanks so much.

They were a little busy since it was a Friday afternoon, but I was able to look at glasses while I waited and everyone was super up front about how long it would be. I always appreciate the honesty! Dr. Birdsongwas great, easy to chat with and very helpful in getting me new contacts after a few years break. I’ll keep coming back here for sure.

A little hard to find, but Dr.Birdsong was very kind and explained long term as well as short term what MY eyes might look like, not just a generic Jane Doe. She also didn't push me to get new glasses, whichwas refreshing coming from an office that also sells them. Only downside was I figured out too late to park on the top floor of the parking deck to get free parking, not in the lot right next to the building.

Dr. Birdsong is fantastic! I have a unique eye condition and have seen an ophthalmologist for years. I was cross-eyed and had surgery on both eyes as a toddler. Other optometrists couldn’t even tell I had surgery, much less provide mewith quality care. However, after finding Dr. Birdsong a few years ago, I haven’t needed to see an ophthalmologist, as she understands and is fully knowledgeable about my eye condition. I like and respect her so much my family now sees her. I highly recommend her to everyone!

Quick and easy appointment, but I have been to see her a few times and never really feel like she is fully invested in getting me the best treatment. I feel like the office is more interested in getting patients inand out than taking the time to personalize their recommendations. Other than that, the staff is very friendly and the service was good.
