Dr. Birdsong is great, but the sales staff in her office are rude and pushy. I won't be going back because of them.

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 very friendly, knowledgeable, and experienced. She gave good advice/options for my situation (going from nearsighted to farsighted in my old age!). She was firm but gentle as I tried to avoid having my eyes dilated again. I'vebeen a patient of hers for nearly 5 years now and am very pleased.

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.

It was alright. Jamilah was very kind and helpful. She answered my few questions thoroughly, but there was nothing fantastic. All in all it was a standard experience and met my needs, but didn’t exceed any expectations.

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!

This was my second visit to this office. The front office staff pulled up the wrong insurance information and was processing it, I kept informing her that was not my insurance. Dr.Birdsong OD was friendly but seemed impatient and like sherushed the visit. I had a lot of questions because my vision changed significantly, I was extremely scared after leaving the office. I needed glasses but wanted to see a specialist first; the sales team, kept trying to convince me to get the most expensive glasses. My overall experience was decent, not sure if I would go back.

I used my Groupon voucher for this visit and had no issues using it. Dr. Birdsong's bedside manner was very welcoming, and her visits were quick. The front desk staff was very friendly from check-in to check out, and I couldtell they enjoyed their jobs. I would recommend this place to anyone needing glasses or contacts.

The doctor was great, no complaints there, however, the receptionist was a bit "dry". It could have been that she was just having a bad day but it was a little awkward when asking her to help because she forced thehelp, not a willingness. A smile can go a LONG way...

She was ok... She needs to be better with letting people know what she is about to do before she does it. She was like a robot...which was not comforting at all. Please let her know so she can be better.
