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).

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.

Nicole was great and helpful! She explained step by step of everything we were doing. It’s amazing to see how grand technology has become. Dr.John was great as well and very thorough in explaining my results! I couldn’t have chosen a better optometrist office!

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.

Very professional! He dealt with the problem I was there for and did not try to sale me anything that I did not need. He was very kind and listened to me. He was concerned about the prescription my insurance might cover so gave me 2 incase one wasn't covered. Very nice! Have already recommended him to several friends.

Very professional high tech environment. All of the staff gave me their undivided attention and made sure any and all of my questions were answered before I left the office. I came to Dr. Nowell after being very disappointed with my last 2 eye care experiences. In both of those prior experiences I felt like a number in an assembly line. I was very pleased with my experience today and feel like I'm more than welcome to return to the office if the prescription I left with today needs to be tweaked or changed.

I would prefer to get a phone call or an explanation of my benefits and costs ahead of my appointment so I could be prepare in anticipation, rather than advice me just before the exam.
