Wonderful Optometrist who I have been seeing for a number of years. I trust him 100%, always enjoy going to see him and I like the fact he errs on the side of not changing the prescription if there's only a slight change and I am in between prescription strengths.

As always, a great visit with this doctor. I never have to wait, they are very clear about everything (including what things are going to cost), and I'm in and out quickly with exactly what I need.

Dr. Scherick is a kind, knowledgeable, and willing optometrist. He does a thorough exam, explains things articulately, and is a fun conversation. His son who runs the business is also very helpful and discovered that I get free contacts becauseof my prescription, the only business that has done that in over 15 years of contacts. I will always be grateful for their great work and honesty.

Dr. Scherick took the time to explain what he was doing as well as his reasoning throughout the examination, which I appreciated. He answered all my questions, and was very clear about pointing out a potential warning sign and following throughwith a colleague's referral and further research on the topic. I appreciated the transparency and the attention to detail with which this whole clinic conducts business.

Highly recommend Kenneth Scherick to anyone seeking an eye doctor. I needed to get my annual eye check and new glasses and his office was extremely friendly and helpful. Doctor Scherick made sure to analyze everything about my eyes and spenta great amount of time talking through issues/concerns. Highly recommend this office, very professional, knowledgeable, and overall excellent.

As a new patient, Dr. Scherick didn't want to know the details of my current contact lens prescription before the exam. He tested my eyes with and without contacts then told me what he thought my current prescription was and whathe felt it actually should be, adjusting both the correction and the lens size. This made a tremendous difference and made my contacts much more comfortable.

I've love Dr. Scherick! I've been going to him for the last 6 years, and even though my insurance company isn't in-network anymore, it is still 100% worth it to go see him. Dr. Scherick is very thorough, answers all ofmy questions, and makes great recommendations for my contact lenses. In addition the front office staff is always very helpful and professional. They even called me to let me know that my insurance company wasn't in network anymore. I really appreciate this high level of service. Also, I placed an order for contact lenses on Saturday and they arrived to my apartment a few days later.

This was my first time seeing Dr. Scherick and I was very happy with my visit and exam. He was very knowledgeable, pleasant to talk to, and explained everything clearly. The exam was thorough and I thought he was genuinely lookingout for my best interest. I liked how he didn't look to see what my previous contact lense strength was, he did his own objective exam first. I actually went down in my prescription strength. Will definitely keep going and recommend this place to others! Thank you!

Everything was very efficient and I didn't feel like they were trying to sell me on things I didn't need, which I appreciate. However, I will say that Dr. Scherick's demeanor comes across curt and condescending.

This was my second time visiting Dr. S. and he is great! As soon as I walked through the door I was able to meet with him. Standard eye exam but he does a good job of answering questions and puttingthe patient's best interest first. I would definitely recommend him to my friends/family.

Everything went fine, but no one was particularly warm or personable. Felt more like a nuisance than a patient they would want to keep seeing yearly. Not sure if I will be back.

He's an old fashioned guy for the most part, which is likable based on taste. He takes it very seriously if he raises your prescription, which did leave me with not having a strong enough prescription for a year, but he's easy to talk to.

I changed eye doctors to Dr. Sherick and he was phenomenal. He saw my promptly after I arrived for the appointment. He was extremely thorough and took the time to get a complete history, as well as took the time todo an extensive examination. He did not make me feel rushed in any way and answered any questions I had. The staff in the office were also extremely attentive and efficient. One member took the time to call me beforehand to make sure my insurance details were correct, and he had done the research by the time I was done with the appointment about what specifically my insurance covered, as well as help me order my new contacts. 10/10
