Great visit. While "just an exam", I felt like I learned more about my eyes in my 15 minutes with Dr. Fertig than the last 10 years of eye visits. The post exam experience with the SEE staff was great. Very friendly and helpful.

Jesse Fertig was great! Very knowledgeable, professional, compassionate, and interesting to talk to. I would certainly come back to SEE him for all my optical needs. That being said, the staff working in the office could be more helpful. Their attitude was a drastic mismatch to Fertig.

Dr Jesse Fertig was very professional, yet friendly and accessible. He explained every thing he did, and why. This was my first eye exam since grade school and he made it a relaxed and pleasant experience, certainly not the way Iwould describe most medical exams. He was thorough and I felt well taken care of. Thanks, Dr J!

I went with my 28 yo daughter who needs glasses for the 1st time. I’m 62 and have worn glasses since 2nd grade. In my lifetime of eye exams, this easily ranks as one of, if not THE easiest, most pleasantand thorough ever. Jesse was professional, yet very friendly. His obvious knowledge and attention to detail was much appreciated. He strongly urged a follow up with an ophthalmologist to keep tabs on what could be a developing condition. He even jotted down his concerns to make it easy for me to explain the situation to the next Dr. I hope See is savvy enough to cherish Dr Jesse’s service and expertise. He’s a KEEPER!!!!

Really great optometrist!! Friendly, direct, professional, very open to questions and gave detailed explanations without being condescending. The shop staff were nice but pushy when it came to having me order contacts through them. Firstthey assumed I would be ordering through them, and then insisted it was the best price and got irritated when I said I wanted to check elsewhere. By contrast Dr. Fertig told me to shop around if I wanted.

Dr. Fertig was friendly and professional. The whole eye exam was quick and to the point, and he presented plenty of options for contact lenses and glasses that match my lifestyle and my years of experience wearing them. I needed a new eye doctor and I found one.

Jesse was very friendly and told me what and why he was doing during the exam. Very conversational, professional and friendly. The office was clean. The shop in which his office room is located had a friendly and helpful staff (theyhelped with my insurance) and was a convenient addition to my visit. Please note that Jesse's prescriptions do not have to be filled at The shop.

Dr. Fertig was hands down the best optometrist I've ever seen. He was thorough in his exam and explained everything to me as he went. He explained the updates to my prescriptions (for both glasses and contacts), why I wear thebrand of contacts I do, and what he observed as he examined my eyes. He was an attentive listener and was very kind. I highly recommend Dr. Fertig.
