Outside of the office Dr. Rappa loves spending outdoor time with her husband Lance and their two dogs.

Very good, she was very thorough! i like her staff. too!
This was by far the best eye doctor appointment I have ever had. Everyone was very nice, helpful, and efficient. I was informed of what i am covered for without any tricks, which was refreshingly after the last few places I've been to.
Dr Rappa was very professional. She explained and asked if I had other questions. I felt she was really interested in my needs
My visit at Eyecenter Optometric went very well. I am newer to the area and decided to try this office as they have Saturday hours which work best with my work schedule. Although I was not greeted by reception when walking into the office the two women were pleasant and gave me the form I needed to fill out. Once I was done with that I was called back only a minute or two later. The woman who performed the screenings prior to seeing Dr. Rappa was very sweet and helpful. Dr. Rappa herself was great as well. She wasn't rushed, listened to my concerns, and didn't push any services or products on me (as I've had done before). The optician was very patient with me as I searched for a new glasses frame and was also very knowledgable about the best way to utilize my insurance. Overall, I will continue to see and recommend Dr. Rappa to others.
Dr Brenda Coen was amazing. The staff is very knowledgeable and competent. I will be returning.

Very good, friendly staff, great experience.
She's very informative and friendly. Best customer service I've had in a while. Friendly staff.
She was a great OD. Very warm personality with knowledge too. She spent all the time I needed answering my questions . Her staff was friendly too!!
I was a great appointment! I was there for new contact lenses, but she also gave me advice on how to get my eyes to stop watering all the time. This was a problem I told to another eye doctor and they had nothing to say, so it was a relief to figure out what the problem was. Only downside was that my gps seemed to think the office was somewhere different than it was. I'm not from the area so I drove around for about 15 minutes without finding the place. If you have trouble, call the office and get the cross streets, because google maps is very confused about this location.
Dr. Linda Rappa, OD was simply outstanding! She reviewed my medical history, gave a thorough, and informative examination. Provided me information that was pertinent to my pre-existing conditions, while informing of my mu present diagnosis-and prognosis. As a patient who has a myriad of health conditions, she was one of the best I've met in a very long time. Friendly, positive, and professional!
I was treated very well by all in the office and would highly recommend this group to anyone.
She was very helpful and informative. And she was also really nice and easy to talk to. I will be back to see her next year for my annual eye exam for sure! I had a wonderful experience and I was in and out within an hour. Great service!
She was absolutely without a doubt the most pleasant and knowledgeable eye Doctor I have ever been to! ? I didn't feel rushed and if I had a question she had an answer. She really cares about her patience and when you leave you leave with the feeling of, wow she really cares about my eye sight! I will definitely recommend DR Linda Rappa to everyone I know! Thank you Dr Rappa! Sincerely, Mrs. Carrie D
