Verified Patient Reviews
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 the first 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 professional and courteous. The young woman who did my tests was very through and polite. The doctor was wonderful. She was honest and informative about my condition and recommended what was BEST for me! It doesn't get any better than that!!
All staff were pleasant and professional.
They treated me well.
I was wanting to have more time with a doctor.
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 quick but the doctor was very thorough and explained everything clearly.
arrived early but they were right on time
I found this visit to be the best eye doctor visit I've ever had. Very up to date technology. Great staff. Really, it couldn't have gone better.
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.
They're very friendly and nice. They making sure I understand everything since I'm hearing impaired. I'll keep them as my eye doctor.
This was a great moment because i came to understand my problem and the journey to treatment and how important it is to visit doctors regularly for checkups to prevent complications which can be prevented before they become worse.
I was very impressed
HE WAS VERY PERSONABLE AS WERE ALL THE NURSES!!
Loved Dr. Whitman and the staff, but the wait was ridiculous! I was there at the office waiting for an hour and a half after my scheduled appointment before I saw the doctor!
Don't waste your time! This practice is a total joke.
