I wasn't very happy with this optometrist. There were a lot of extra tests and they weren't optional and some were not covered by insurance. I also felt like the optometrist was pressuring in trying to get me to wear contactswhen I wasn't really interested in them. I was the first patient in the office and other patients were seen before me and they came in a long time after me! It's good that other patients are satisfied with this optometrist, but he just wasn't the right one for me.

Everyone is friendly & Dr. Fain is very personable. There is a bit of a push to call in prescription eye drops that I usually end up not getting. The time waiting for the doctor after being taken to the examroom is usually a bit long. He is always very apologetic but I know they over-lap patients. (It is about normal for most doctor offices these days.)

I was the first patient of the day and was taken right back to do testing. I was extremely annoyed that I had to wait 30 minutes to see the dr in a very cold room. That leads me to feelas though my time isn't as important as the dr's. Once he came in it was almost as if he were trying to get me out of there quickly. Disappointed with my appointment today.

He is an amazing and caring doctor. Always looks for ways to help his patients. I am a teacher and he even offers help for students who can't afford his services.

I felt that the doctor was pushing for my son to have contacts for reason such as it will help with his self esteem. I didn't appreciate the reasoning. He's 9 and it made him feel awkward. Also, I was cutoff mid sentence so my son could answer questions which I was fine with him answering but didn't appreciate the method in which it was done.

We LOVE Dr. Fain and Allen. They are always attentive, speak directly to my child for answers, instead of looking to me to provide. We have been patients in this office for over 5 years and can't imagine receiving the sametype of care and service from any other provider. they always work to meet our needs and in my opinion go above and beyond in meeting my expectations.

I purposely schedule my appointments as early as possible because it means the doctor has less of a chance to fall behind schedule (due to patients, obviously) and thus, extend my wait time. My appointment was on time and the staffmembers were all friendly, efficient, and I felt like I was in and out pretty quickly without sacrificing quality of care.

Dr. Fain clearly explains the outcome of the exam & gives several options for relief of eye conditions such as allergies, dry eyes, burning. The office is very thorough in their testing, offering tests that many big name optical places cannot offer.
