She was really nice and answered my questions thoroughly. I was seen before my appointment (I got there 20 min early). Also, when I was told I needed glasses, the lens specialist helped me get a great value for my framesand was really patient while I tried on lots of different ones.

There was a staff shortage so it took over an hour to be seen by the technician and then another 30-45 minutes to be seen by Dr. Saeed. She was very detailed in her analysis and her recommendations on how Ishould move forward. Overall, it was a pleasant experience minus the wait but I attribute that to the staff being short. I would recommend it but probably get there at least 15 minutes before my appointment.

Everyone who worked with me was fantastic! My only complaint is the wait time. I went in for a routine eye exam and came out 2+ hours later. It was ridiculous, and there is no parking so you either have topay to park in a garage or do meter parking. Dr Saeed was wonderful though, very knowledgeable and skilled at her craft.

Dr. Saeed and the entire staff was absloutely great, but the entire visit took 2:30 hours, which seems a little crazy for a vision exam.

Had a pleasant appointment. Was slightly annoyed that ancillary staff dilated my eyes accidentally because i was only there for a vision exam. Otherwise though Dr. Saeed was honest, professional, and her recommendations were reasonable

The office is easily accessible and the staff are all nice and easy to work with. I was seen exactly at my appointment time. It didn’t seem like they were just trying to get you to buy overpriced glasses/contacts. In factthe contacts were actually fairly priced (which is rare at doctors offices). The doctor is knowledgeable and takes time to explain everything eye health and vision related. One of the better optometrists I have seen in a long while.

Dr. Saeed was amazing! She was professional, efficient, very friendly, knowledgeable and a great listener. She made me feel very well taken care of, took the time to answer all of my questions and even used pictures to further help meunderstand her explanations. She went above and beyond to ensure that I received the best care for my eyes during the visit as well as preparing me for any potential issues that could arise in the future. Everyone in the office is very friendly as well!

It was excellent! Both Dr. Saeed and the office's staff were wonderful. I had some trouble getting my insurance sorted correctly, and the administrator at the desk was very patient with me and did a lot of legwork to look upmy insurance when I didn't have all the information on hand. Dr. Saeed herself was very personable, professional, informative, and helpful. This was by far the most pleasant optometrist appointment I've ever had!

Dr. Saeed is one of those rare doctors who engages and gently instructs the actions needed to assess and diagnose any issues or to declare good health. I would recommend Dr, Saeed to anyone asking for an awesome OD! She's the top! Thanks, Dr. Saeed!

Dr Saeed was amazing. I discussed all my medical history with her and things I currently do, like scuba dive. She not only did a comprehensive exam, but she helped me pick what works best for me. Her staff was extremelyhelpful in getting my insurance information. I can't recommend the office enough.
