One of the better experiences I’ve had at an eye doctor! The doctor was super nice and seemed genuinely interested in helping me get my prescription right, turns out I have astigmatism which no doctor has ever told me before. Thetech and the receptionist were very personable and really interested in helping me find a pair of frames that fit my face properly. Overall, I had a wonderful experience and I can’t wait for my new glasses to be ready!

This was my second exam with Kristin Jacob and she takes all the time you need to get it right. Very relaxed and friendly - professional and knowledgable. Brandon helped me pick out frames and spent quality time helping me pickout frames and explaining the process of the lenses I will be reluctantly transitioning into in my old age! I am very happy with the care and service and would highly recommend this practice.

My appointment with Dr. Kristin Jacob was amazing. She really takes her time to explain what she is doing and how my family history might affect my vision in the future. She is thorough without rushing, and genuinely cares about yourhealth. Would definitely recommend her to my friends or family for yearly check-ups, and for new prescriptions.

When I arrived at the office, I was greeted by the friendly and patient wait staff who took me in for an initial checkup the moment I finished my paperwork. It took the Optometrist about 30 seconds to see me onceI had finished my checkup. Kristin was friendly and extremely thorough and took time to carefully answer all of my questions. I especially appreciate how the office has invested in new tech that is more comfortable for the patient. Specifically a retinal photo instead of having to be dilated, and a pressure sensor that doesn't blow a puff of air into your eye. Not having my pupils dilated allowed me to go right back to work!

I and my dougher have a very pleasant time at Dr Jocob office. No waiting time, office staff was very kind and professional.
