Fantastic doctor, really knows his stuff. Office is a tad bit overpriced with glasses and the upcharge "add-on" exams, but that's what you get with Orlando.

This was my first eye appointment in a few years. The staff was helpful and friendly. Dr. Nowell was kind and informative. The office was busy since I went on a Saturday but everything was very efficient and I was able to get my eyes checked and pick out new frames with no issues. I would highly recommend this office

Dr Nowell and his staff are professional, friendly, and always helpful. Dr Nowell makes sure to spend enough time with me, and explains things thoroughly so that i actually understand what is going on with my health and well-being. 2018 is my fourth year as his patient, and as long as I can, I don’t plan to see anyone else!

The office is very pleasant and doubles as a sort of one stop shop for glasses, contacts, and other accessories - but be aware, its incredibly expensive to buy from them and you're probably better off at a retailer. The staff were very warm and friendly. The doctor was nice and professional, too.

I loved and appreciated how nice and patient everyone working at the office was. I was a new patient and I came in for new glasses prescription. I want to get contacts and despite spending 45 min to try them on, the staff and doctor were super supportive and encouraging. I will be going back for another attempt at contacts. I’m glad I found a nice and friendly doctor in my neighborhood. Can’t recommend enough.

I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Nowell and his staff. They were both very friendly, I was greeted with a smile by all, and their office location both the reception area and the exam rooms were very nice and clean. The glasses prices are a bit high for my taste so I got my glasses elsewhere but no problem with verifying insurance.

Always nervous when trying out a new doctor. From the time we walked in and walked out, the staff was excellent. Dr. Nowell put us at ease and spent time with us answering any questions that we had. His staff was very attentive and offered us coffee. We didn't have time to drink it before we were in the exam room. (We took it with us though).

This is my second time going to this doctor. Dr. Nowell is very professional and friendly. His staff also has great personality and makes you feel welcome and in good hands. Dr. Nowell is thorough and speaks in ways that help you understand what is going on or what to look for with your eyesight. I will definitely be back next year for my annual eye exam and I highly recommend going here. The wait time was also very fast.

I was on the way but they didn't wait for me even though I notified them that I4 traffic was backed up. The lady was nice enough to let me know ahead of time by calling me back that they would be canceling the appt and I would have to reschedule.

Waiting time was very doable; I was expecting a bit anyway because I was a new patient and needed to fill out paperwork. Definitely not as long as I have waited in other offices. Corinne was the assistant that helped me out for most of my appointment, and she was very friendly and easy to talk to. I was struggling by myself to find new frames that I liked, and I honestly don't think I would have been able to choose without her help. Dr. Nowell was also very friendly and made sure to correct any information that seemed off, and he also made sure I was comfortable with my contact lens before I left since I mentioned I struggled with that. He answered all of the questions I had about my change in prescription and the overall health of my eyes. Easy to discuss what your options need to be with respect to your budget. I definitely want to come back for future appointments.

Dr Nowell is very professional and thorough. His staff ( JAS ) especially was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable and courteous. The only thing i would suggest at this office is to get the pricing upfront of the LENSES before you waste time on the frames. Very pricey compared to most.

This is my third year as a patient of Dr. Nowell's. He is always professional and friendly. He clearly takes pride in his work and enjoys what he does. He has the most courteous staff, too. They always take their time answering questions and explaining things to me, and are willing to walk around with me and help me select the best pair of frames for my face. I tell all my friends about him.
