Dr. Merino was very kind and patient with my children. Once he realized that dilation was needed, he gave us the option to return on a different day for better timing--he sure knows kids well! We will definately be returning-- forthe dilation and for more exams in the future! Thanks for a comfortable experience!

My visit was quick and simple. Arrived, signed necessary paperwork, and was seen imidiatly. Doctor was professional and still personable. The staff were personable and helpful when it came to picking out a new pair of glasses while stayingin my budget. No pushing for an upgrade or trying to pitch accessories and new features for lenses, nice change of pace.

This was probably one of the best eye appointments I've ever encountered. As soon as I walked in the receptionist greeted me with a smile. She handled everything properly and answered any questions I had. She made me feel comfortable thewhole time, even though I hate when anything touches my eyes (They numb your eyes with drops and touch them with their hi tech pen thingy to make sure your eyes are healthy). After the pre exam, the doctor gives you the wellness and/or contact exam. He was super patient, and made sure I got the best prescription possible. My prescription for contacts were in the middle of two of the contacts available, so I tried both on to compare, and picked the better of the two. Now I'm walking around looking all cute with my sparkly blues. All in all, they are amazing and friendly.

I needed an appointment at short notice and though I have never visited him and he was fully booked, I was squeezed in that day itself. The doctor was very friendly and clarified all my queries with patience. I am very happy with the treatment.

Loved it! He was friendly, knowledgeable and very thorough. He listened to and address all of my concerns. His assistant, I think her name is Lillian, was also very friendly and helpful. She helped me pick out a frame and tookher time to make sure I felt comfortable. I'm happy I've found my new Optometrist!
