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 because of 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 through with 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.

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 looking out 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 putting the 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.

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 what he 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.

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 spent a great amount of time talking through issues/concerns. Highly recommend this office, very professional, knowledgeable, and overall excellent.
