I am 65 and had not had an eye appointment anywhere for 7 years. I expected that I would try to be sold on some procedure that Key-Whitman provides. Instead, I was informed that I didn't have glaucoma, that the cataractlevel I was at did not require any additional attention at this time and was given a new glasses prescription. No one even asked me to try their glasses sales. I was completely happy with my visit.

Efficient and thorough. Everyone was friendly and nice. My only complaint is that after my series of test...my wait for the doctor was 35 minutes for a 5 minute evaluation. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this facility.

I've been three times and each time I received professional care with each situation thoroughly detailed by the doctor and knowledgable nurses. Additionally, online patient portal reports are provided post visit in-case you missed details mentioned during visit. I've been very impressed with their timeliness and overall care.

The doctor visited me for 2 minutes. I had follow up questions I asked the nurse who came in with him that was different than the one who wrote down my history initially. I asked questions that were noted with thefirst nurse, but were not reviewed during the visit with the doctor. The second nurse had to go back to the doctor and ask questions. Worse, I looked at my chart online and it includes more information than was excluded in person, including more over the counter treatments I am to take that wasn't even mentioned!

Very busy office so there was a bit of a wait but the front office staff were very nice. Once I got back, the Doctor came back fairly quickly after some initial vitals and such by the nurse. Examination was quickbut the doctor was very thorough and explained everything clearly.

We got great parking, the office wifi didn't work (not a big deal), the wait was short, the check-in process super easy, the office staff was great and the actual exam ran pretty smooth. I was in and out pretty quickly.

The staff was kind, however a practice this elaborate is not needed if you do not suspect you have issues with your eyes.
