Very friendly and warm staff. Did not mind short wait time as I was a new client. I was able to fill out forms electronically before my appointment.
Dr. Brice is always very efficient and cordial. She always listens and takes her time with you.
Great visit. First time with an eye appointment in about 8 years and she was very informative about my eyes. Gave good feedback for what needs to happen next with my follow up appointments. Will definitely be going back!
Dr. Brice is a great optometrist. She is kind and personable, and was able to take care of me quickly and completely.
Dr. Brice was great, and everyone in the office was nice and welcoming
She was exceptional. I appreciated the time that she took to make a perfect fit for my son's contacts. I am so glad that Dr. Brice was referred to us.
Dr Brice was extremely nice and friendly. I felt like she genuinely cared about my visit and was very thorough and informative. I will definitely continue seeing Dr Brice!
I have been going to this office for years, always had a great experience. Mary is an excellent doctor, very personable and she took her time with me to find the correct contact lenses. Everyone in the office makes you feel good about being there. They're booked out in advance for a reason.
It's been a few years since my last eye appointment (work and travel caused me to deviate from the usual yearly checkup). This was also my first visit with Dr. Brice. I must say I was slightly apprehensive about not seeing Dr. Smith, who I've trusted with my eye care for literally over a decade and a half now, since middle school. It became very clear in the first few minutes that I was in excellent hands. She was extremely personable and attentive to detail. What impressed me the most was how she took her time to make sure that not only everything checked out well, but also to provide very clear and thorough explanations of the what and the why. And of course, the front office staff at Briggs is always a pleasure. Can't imagine going anywhere else.
Dr. Brice is professional and really listened to my questions and concerns. She made sure I didn't have any questions before leaving.
Very nice person. Shared good information. Just a little too long of a wait after my eyes were dialated. Also driving when I left was not a good idea. I could barely see.
The actual care is great, but for both of my visits, I showed up around 10 minutes early but still had to wait almost 45 minutes after my appointment time to see the doctor.
Dr. Brice and all the staff were friendly and well informed.
No one looks forward to going to any doctor... However, this experience was delightful. the staff could not be any friendlier or attentive.
I enjoyed my visit. Dr.Brice was very friendly & informative. Her & the staff took their time with me which I liked. I've been to 3 other eye doctors in the 3 yrs I've lived in GA & only visited each once because there was always something wrong. Either I felt rushed, they cared more about me buying something or given wrong information. I plan to visit Dr.Brice again.
Dr. Brice is very professional and pleasant. She addressed all my concerns and did a thorough exam.
Dr. Brice has a great - personally and professionally. The eye exam and her supporting staff were both thorough and efficient.
The doctor and the staff were helpful and nice.
I got there a little early, but once my appointment time was reached she took me back very quickly. This allowed me time to fill out paperwork and get settled! She is SO nice and bright! I didn't feel awkward around her at all. Even though it was difficult for her to figure out during the exam which prescription lens were best for my eyes with astigmatism, she didn't give up. She made sure she found the most perfect prescription for me for eye glasses AND eye contacts. One of the ladies in her office said my glasses would be in within two weeks. I picked out my glasses on a friday and that following Monday, they were in my hands! WOW! I can't guarantee it will be like that for everyone because they may have had a smaller load of eyeglasses to work on. If they had a heavier load, I'm sure the wait would have been longer. Everyone is nice and I can assure you that with me being the oddball I am, they will NOT discriminate toward anyone. Everyone there is so sweet and so down to earth. I am happy to say that she will be my doctor for the rest of my eye exams unless I move away from Atlanta! Go to her! She's a doll!
Everything was great except for the wait. Although Dr. Brice was appropriate apologetic, it would have been nice had they run the office in a way to avoid the excessive wait.
Wonderful experience and would highly recommend her! Very professional, knowledgeable, cares about you, and is also personable. Wonderful office environment as well with good selection of glasses and a very knowledgeable and helpful person in that area to help.

Terrific staff, great selection of eyewear, Dr Brice very engaging. Can't wait for my new glasses!
She is great and the office stuff was too. Found my eye doctor :)
Very professional and very knowledgeable. She listened to my concerns, and I never felt rushed or hurried in any way. While checking out, I told the front desk that I had forgotten to tell her something during my appointment, and they said they'd have her call me. Imagine my surprise when she called me just 15 minutes later! Normally you wait days for doctors to call you back! I felt like she genuinely cared about providing the best service and experience for me as a patient. I will definitely be returning and recommending to others!

My visit was great. There was a little mix-up in scheduling between Zoc Doc and the office computer, but when I showed them my e-mail, they let me right in. Dr. Brice was super nice and did everything she could to help me understand what was going on with my vision. I'm definitely going back next time I need an eye exam.
Other than the wait time, Dr. Brice was very knowledgeable, professional and explained everything very well to me.
