Verified Patient Reviews
Had been a few years since my last eye exam when we lived elsewhere, so made an appointment to be seen by Dr. Chesner. He and his office staff were knowledgeable and professional. As I have gotten older, Dr. Chesner advised me on some issues with dry eyes and my needing reading glasses. Helpful and efficient, was glad I went to their office!
I have been going here for years. Great service. I like Dr Chesner and I like doing business with a neighborhood doctor, rather then a corporate or big box Company...
Very knowledgeable and welcoming!
This is a casual, friendly office, with competent, helpful staff. I have been going there for about 25 years, and have recommended them to several people who also had good experiences. Since I was paying cash (rather than insurance), my two pairs of glasses were ready just 2 1/2 hours after I left the office.
I have been seeing Dr. Chesner for eye care for over 40 years. He and his staff are great, but I wish he would computerize his patient records!
I have been going to the doctor for several years and always have received great service.
Very professional but also warm and concerned. I've seen Dr. Chesner for years and he's always taken good care of me.
He was great and so was his entire office, all super friendly and caring.
Excellent appointment, very thorough and accurate!
Professional, thorough, and friendly!
Dr. Chesner was thorough and explained things as he went through the exam. He and his stuff were friendly and very helpful. Their prices on glasses was very reasonable. I just move to SD and am so glad I found Dr. Chesner. I'm a regular now.
Honest and didn't try to sell me eyeglasses that I didn't need.
My appointment was at 1030 and my wife's appointment was at 9 but Dr. Chesner saw me at 9 and saw my wife at 930 so we did not have to wait and we were able to get our exam, select our frames, and order our glasses at out of there by 10.
The only issue I had is that although I filled out all the forms online they still had me complete the forms. We have been going to Dr. Chesner for many years. My appt was at 9 and my husband appt was at 1030 but Dr. Chesner saw my husband at 9 and took me right after so we were able to get out of there by 10. It was quick and great service.
Very intelligent and gentle. He was personable and professional, I felt like I'd known him my whole life. I don't remember being that at ease during an eye appointment.
He is awesome! I also really liked the staff, five stars :)
Dr. Chesner is great and the staff is fantastic. Best Optometrist I've been to over the years.
I found everyone in the office very welcoming and friendly and extremely helpful. Dr. Chesner was a wealth of information and willing to take to the time to explain. Very personable service. Highly recommend to anyone!
The doctor was extremely friendly and professional, as was the entire office staff. I felt very welcome and at ease right away. I can't recommend this office highly enough!
I've been going to Dr. CheNer since I was in college and we've grown white-hated together. Kinda says it all
Dr Chesner and staff were professional, friendly, and helpful in guiding through the various test, exam and frame selection process. It was a very positive experience.
The optometrist was very professional and knew what he was doing. His team was a great help.
Dr. Chesner and his whole office were absolutely fantastic. I would recommend them very highly.
Love Dr. Chesner!!
He was very nice and I felt he was honest with me, didn't try to sell anything to me. Great first experience, nice staff and attentive to my inquiries.
I had a wonderful visit and Dr. Chesner was very helpful, professional, and kind.
Everyone was friendly and helpful. Doctor was thorough and explained very thing well. Lots of glasses! A very positive experience.
Really great doctor and staff. Everyone was friendly and helpful, and they even took initiative to figure out my correct insurance when I brought in the wrong one. A+ all around.
Louis it's very nice and profecional I'm Vary please
He was very professional, thorough and friendly. I would highly recommend.
Dr Chesner always explains information about the tests he is performing and advises about differences from prior appointments. His office is clean, staff is friendly and knowledgeable and there is a large selection of quality frames that will fit any budget.
The Dr. And his staff are friendly and I like that Dr Chesner informs his patients about the tests and what the results mean. There's a large selection of stylish frames to fit all budgets and the office is clean and conveniently located.
The whole visit was incredible. The doctor is a really nice guy, and even went into some sciencey stuff on eyeballs. The staff is also super!
Dr. Chesner and the staff are all very professional and friendly.
Always very professional and attentive.
I've been going to Dr. Chesner for almost 40 years. He's a kind and competent doctor. I just wish he would computerize patient records!!!
I was so impressed with Dr. Chesner and his staff. Everyone was very personable and nice. Dr. Chesner's examination was very thorough and educational. I would definitely recommend Dr. Chesner (and actually already have). Wonderful service!
It was a very quick and easy visit to Dr. Chesner's office. All the staff I interacted with were friendly and helpful. I would gladly recommend visiting him.
His staff was friendly, fast, and easy to deal with, and he's a very easy-going professional who got me right in and out the door without feeling rushed or pushed to buy anything I wasn't prepared for. I'm really looking forward to getting my new glasses, and I'll be going back to his office for contacts in January 2016.
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Chesner. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Dr. Chesner was very thorough and explained everything to me as he was seeing me. It was my first eye exam and I'm happy to say it was a very pleasant experience. The office has a huge selection of name brand glasses and the staff were very helpful in assisting me to select a pair that were flattering.
He was very friendly, professional, listens properly, and explains thoroughly so that the client can have a good understanding. I would recommend him to other patients.
I've seen this doctor for years. He is great as is his staff.
This was my first visit with Dr. Chesner and he was great! I have an unusual eye condition and he took a lot of time not only to fully understand it, but to fully explain it to me. My previous eye doctor would put me through all of the regular tests, but I never understood what he was doing. Dr. Chesner told me what he was trying to achieve with each of his tests (as did his staff) and then helped me to give him the kind of feedback he needed in order to find the right prescription. My previous doctor just got frustrated with me when I wasn't giving him the information he was looking for. I hate having an eye exam, but I actually enjoyed it this time. I also didn't feel pressured to buy a more expensive frame, or to add unnecessary things to the lenses. I'm glad I went. :-)
The staff was very friendly, even helped me decide which glasses looked better. The wait time wasn't bad, I came early so I'm sure that attributed to my wait time. They had a very nice selection of glasses available, this was my third visit to this clinic in the last 8 years, wouldn't go anywhere else. Also the online appointment scheduling and check in is so convenient, easiest way to do it and a real time saver. Always a welcome when I come here.
Dr. Rosenblatt and Sarah were both incredibly helpful in explaining what was necessary in my prescription and giving me honest input on frames. Can't wait to get my new cute glasses!
The office staff is extremely nice and so is Dr. Chesner. Very little wait. Thorough appointment. Great selection of glasses. I highly recommend a visit!
Dr. Chesner really seems to know his stuff, and is generally quite friendly. He was pretty busy today, so didn't have as much time for questions, but I only had one and after his great assistant helped me sort out what I needed to order (I had a lot to take care of today), he stopped by in between other patients to make sure he had answered everything. Great doctor and staff, maybe a tad over-scheduled today. It's possible earlier in the day is better, I think last time I had a morning appt. and it was less busy.
As always, professional and friendly!
Highly recommended! Dr. Chesner was upfront with me about costs and tried to help me minimize it. He kept trying to find ways for me to not incur such high costs. I'm not sure I've been to a doctor who wasn't in some way trying to get me to spend more money. He even took the time out to show me the pictures of my retina and we discussed eye anatomy briefly. His staff were awesome too!
Great staff and Dr. Even had toys for the little one to play with. Highly recommend
He was very nice and professional. They were little short staffed, but very nice. The Dr. even went out of his way to be fair and allow us to call in with our contact sizes which were at home so that we wouldn't be charged for sizing our contacts....so honest! Highly recommend.
I was there in 2006, I tried other places and they just do not stack up to Dr. Chesner's practice.
my first time ever at an eye doctor and everyone was wonderful. They explained everything so well and helped navigate my insurance and benefits. Dr. Chesner was incredibly helpful and explained what was going on and what I needed. One of my better experiences with any type of doctor ever.
Everyone was nice and friendly. It was so easy to use my VSP insurance.
Super Doc, I'd go again for sure!
Staff was friendly and helpful
Very professional, very knowledgeable, nice, and most importantly very thorough eye doctor. And her staff were pleasant and nice. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family.
Great doctor. The wait was a little long.
Dr. Chesner was BY FAR the best Optometrist, if not the best doctor in general, that I have ever seen. He was so nice and really took the time to help me understand what my prescription meant and the best way to take care of my eyes. I was also able to get a great deal on beautiful frames and walked out feeling like a part of the family. All of the receptionists were also incredibly sweet and each helped me to pick out my frames! I honestly couldn't recommend this place enough, it was really a great experience!
Very friendly and knowledgable. His staff was very helpful in picking out glasses!
Professional, warm, and rrespectful. ~10 min from checking in to being seen. He also answered my questions with more in-depth science if I asked for it.
I've been going to this office for many years now. No reason to search for alternates. Great attitude in the office overall. The procedures are explained. The customer is always warned when it might be uncomfortable. The staff actually listen to the customer. Nothing negative.
Dr Chesner has up to date technology that allows for faster and greater accuracy with prescriptions and potential eye issues.
Very pleasant and knowledgeable.
Dr. Chesner was very friendly and explained every detail of what he was doing during my exam!
Super friendly staff, lead by a very personable and knowledgeable person in Dr. Chesner. So glad to make him my optometrist moving forward!
Very positive visit. Nice Doctor friendly staff.
What I really liked were his comments about what he was doing and finding at every step. When changing lenses back and forth, back and forth, with his explanations I now understand! Thanks
Friendly and professional staff and doctor. Dr. Chesner did not charge me for a follow up appt. which was very considerate.
Dr. Chesner is always professional and friendly. His exams are thorough, and if you're being fitted for contacts he's great about working with you to find a brand that is comfortable and meets your needs.
Great selection of glasses and friendly, helpful staff.
He was very professional, and made me feel like a person and not just a patient. His staff was more than willing to help me and other patients that were waiting. I will recommend his and his staff's services to other members of my hospital. Thank you.
Very professional, friendly, and personable. Was quick and showed expertise. Thank you!
Love the personal care and friendliness of Dr. Chesner
I have been seeing Dr. Chesner since I was 19yrs. old. The Dr. is very pleasant and he really is out to make sure your eyes get better not worse.
He is a classy, friendly man. It was refreshing to be treated as a valued customer. A very rare thing theese days.
First time visit and friendly doctor. Explained everything and even gave me some great contact tips I hadn't had before.
Professional, friendly and not pushy. All I wanted was an eye exam. Did not insist I purchase glasses or any other thing I didn't come to get. My appt didn't show on the doctor's calendar and they still worked me in immediately.
Dr. Chesner was very good at explaining everything I needed to know.
Dr Chesner has been providing my eye care for nearly ten years. If you want a high level of service, friendly helpful staff, and an eye doctor that truly cares about you and goes above and beyond to make sure all of your vision needs are met, then this is the place for you.
My first time in and I felt like I wasn't "oversold" like has been my experience with past OD's
