I've been going to Doctor Brodak for many years, ever since he started working at this Four Eyes, I've been seeing him and he is always so kind and thoughtful with his patients. He asks personal questions that are very friendly and he is easy to understand and is a joy to talk with, over all. Unfortunately I couldn't get new glasses due to my insurance not covering it for once a year, but every two years but I did get a check up with Doctor Brodak, just no glasses. ): Overall I highly recommend him as your eye doctor. :"D
He is one of the best optometrists I have seen in my lifetime. He was great with answering all of my questions and explained things in a way that anyone could understand. I had to bring my younger sons with me and he was so nice to them. I will recommend him to anybody that asks!

I love Dr. Brodak. He does not rush the visit and actually makes an effort to get to know his patients. I have been seeing him for the past 3 years and makes an effort to remember little details about his patients. This makes the visit comfortable. I would recommend him.
Dr. Brodak was very helpful and informative. His employees were very professional, and made my son feel comfortable being there. The waiting time was less than expected, and not to many papers to fill out for first time patients.
It was a wonderful visit. Thank you
It was great no complaints
Very friendly and professional. Highly recommended.
Dr. Brodak is very knowledgeable and thorough. I thank him for his patience with a six year old boy who was very curious about all the different equipment and wanted to touch everything. I am so glad my boy received the help he desparately needed for his vision. Thank you, Dr. Brodak.
He was very nice and wasn't repetitive and mundane like most eye doctors.
I think the doctor looks absolutely wonderful. I especially like the way he takes time to explain everything he's doing throughout the eye exam. He is very detailed and has patience & knowledge that he openly shares. He also has a way of making you feel comfortable through the exam. I am referring him to all my family & friends.
We were checked in right away and then we saw Dr. Brodak within 5 minutes. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He asked if my other daughter needed an eye exam and we set it up while we were there. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff as well.
He is awesome.
Dr. Brodak, is the best. He is timely, thorough, caring, attentive and takes his time to speak to you about your concerns.

Visit went great! Dr. Was very courteous, and knowledgeable. He is great with not just adults but kids as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Brodak!!!!
Great doctor! Easy to talk to. Made the appointment very down to earth.
It is always great.
He was so awesome!!
The doctor first prescribed me a -3 prescription with trial lenses, which I did not like. He said I could switch to my previous brand of lens (with the updated prescription), but when I returned they gave me a prescription 0.25 stronger than what I was originally prescribed. These new contacts are uncomfortable and the doctor has been very difficult to contact. The front-desk person keeps intercepting my inquiries. I'd like to talk to Dr. Brodak about my prescription, not the front-desk person.
Dr. Brodak is very conscientious & doesn't make you feel rushed. Always willing to answer all my questions. I highly recommend him.
He had a practiced professionalism that demonstrated years of experience, yet he still came across as genuine and caring in his conversation. He corrected misinformation given to me by previous optometrists, breaking the info down in layman's terms for me to understand. Highly recommended!
My visit with dr. Brodak was awesome the atmosphere was great very professional would definitely recommend him to others. ??
First time visiting with Dr. Brodak for eye exam. Very pleasant bedside manner. Willing to listen and answer my questions, as well as explained very thoroughly and simple.
Dr. Brodak and his staff are courteous, thoughtful, considerate and truly cared about my well being. It is a joy to visit. Thank you for taking such good care of my eyes!
Dr. Brodak is great. He sees both of my kids and even made time to see my grandmother when she visited from Brazil. He is kind and explains everything with such ease. He takes his time and you never feel rushed.
They provided time options on line, when I booked it the night before and showed up early for my appointment, the lady (who was not the regular receptionist, I think the doctor's wife) did not see my appointment online. Was not to friendly and in stead of checking my benefits and making sure to charge me the correct co-pay, over charged me. I have to call several times to get a hold of someone. When I finally did, the gentleman who is the regular front desk person was very friendly and helpful. He resolved my issue and ended up returning the money that was over charged. Leaving message for the eye doctor is hard, since they are not open everyday, you can not get a hold of him right away if needed.
He was thorough, polite and helpful
The doctor was great and the visit was pleasant. However, I was given a pair of sample contact lenses and one was defective. I called the office to arrange to exchange the defective one and the assistant said he would get back to me right away. It's many hours later and I haven't heard anything. Not happy with that.
Dr. Brodak's bedside manner, knowledge, and professionalism was exceptional. He took the time to teach and explain everything to my teenaged children and appropiately answered their questions. His assistant Esteban was phenomenal while teaching my daughter to use contacts, and was very patient and supportive through the process. As a nurse for 14 years, I know good providers when I see them, and they were awesome!
He explained everything thoroughly and was very kind. I would definitely recommend him to others.
Very professional and courteous. Explained everything as it was done during the exam.
Dr. Brodak is fantastic. He is the only doctor that can refract me to 20/20. Thank you Dr. Brodak!
From the gentleman at the front desk back to Dr. Brodak, this practice is awesome! The doctor takes his time, asks lots of questions and I never feel rushed. He was also very patient and kind when treating my five year old :)
Dr. Brodak was very professional and very friendly. It was a very enjoyable experience. He explained everything as he went along during the exam.
Staff is always very helpful and we have been with Doctor Mathew for few years. Always a pleasant experience.
I took ny whole family and we were seen in a timely manner. Dr. Brodak was very informative and funny. He made us feel welcome.
Great doctor, very thorough and great bedside manner!

I have been a patient of Dr. Brodak for several years. He is very competent and thorough and takes time to explain everything patiently and carefully.

Excellent. Very Helpful and pleasant
Great doctor and visit
I really liked Dr Brodak. He explained what he was doing and what was going on with my vision clearly and concisely. His staff was pretty friendly. Unfortunately, the wait was really, ridiculously long. I understand having appointments run over and not being seen immediately but waiting over an hour to be seen is not ideal.
He's super nice and super helpful.
Would highly recommend! Knowledgable, friendly, and professional.
Very professional,efficient and remarkable.
Amazing Doctor. Answered all my questions and concerns. Definitely recommend him.
Really great visit! Was seen right away. The man working the front desk and doing the pre-appointment check was incredibly nice, and Dr. Brodak explained everything well. Very fast in and out of the office without feeling rushed.
For being my first ever trip to a Optometrist I did not know what to expect. armed with my new insurance plan and lots of questions the front desk staff had all the answers and even helped the answer line of my new M.C.O. with some confusion they had. The young man that did my initial screening was a true professional and made me feel at ease from start to finish. Mr.Brodak answered all the questions I could ask and made me feel like he really cared and took the time to explain every test as he performed them made sure I was educated about how to acclimate and get used to going from no glasses to bi-focals. When I left his office I felt like I had a new friend as well as a new eye doctor. so Thank you all for the care I was shown from start to finish ! Thanks, Michael K.
Very thorough exam. Explained all his findings.
It was great!!!!!!!
Dr. Brodak was caring and patient with my daughter as she went through the process of getting fitted for contact lenses.
We have no complain. The staff was very professional, friendly, and courteous.
Fantastic. He clearly explained everything needed and was so nice about it too.
Dr. Brodak was extremely pleasant! He listened to my questions and was genuinely concerned with my eye health. Best eye appointment I have ever had!!! KUDOS!!
I think Dr. Brodak is very thorough and very considerate! Great explanation of my issues!
Dr. Brodak is pleasant, knows his stuff, is not in a rush and makes you feel like there is no one else waiting to see him. When I leave, I feel like I have gotten the best optical care I could get anywhere. Every chance I get, I recommend him.
Dr. Brodak is very good, especially with children and teens.
My only comment is , i had hard time finding the place due to inaccuracy of direction given to me by the front desk guy .
Wonderful with my pre-teen as she transitions from glasses to contact lenses!
Dr. Brodak, was awesome! He has a warm and inviting personality, I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.
I had to take my 4 year old in to see Dr. Brodak and he was great with her! He was very patient and kind. He made it so easy for her to understand what he needed her to do. He was awesome! I would definitely recommend him.
it was very,very,very good i'll be going back to him
He was friendly made a few jokes but I was in and out. Plus my glasses will be available within 5-7days ... sounds good to me
Really great and relaxed environment! Doctor was very detailed and made me feel at ease!
I rarely fill these surveys out, but after my visit with Dr. Matthew Brodak I left highly satisfied. The office was very helpful in alerting me of my appointment as the date approached. The clerk was very well spoken and very professional. As for my exam, it was very quick, efficient, and a positive experience. I left with a pair of contacts the same day! AND I was in and out in just under 30 minutes. I highly recommend anyone to come here.
Very friendly. Very thorough. Way better than my last one lol. I will be going back next year for sure. :)
Dr. Brodak was super nice and very affable. I would definitely visit him again!
he is awesome and thankyou very much.I love him .
The doctor took time to explain all the questions we had.
It was excellent! He was professional and knowledgeable and could connect well with patients. The only thing was that the contact lens prescription that I received was a little off, as I found my contacts to be blurry. I now need to come back again and have it checked again, which is a bit inconvenient.
My 14 year old daughter, who has been wearing glasses since she was 8 or 9, said after the appointment yesterday, "He is the best optometrist I've ever gone to." From a teen, a compliment like that is saying a lot.
He was very nice and had a lot of knowledge of optometry. He was very professional and created a comfortable atmosphere; the people before me came out with smiles, so I knew he had to be a great doctor; and he was absolutely great! The other staff are okay, but this review is about Dr. Brodak, so I gave him 5 stars.
Such a wonderful experience! Understanding and knowledgable! Very down to earth. Made me feel comfortable to just be myself
Professional demeanor. Patient with patients. Took the time to explain his "treatment."
Very intelligent man, explained things well.
Dr. Brodak is a very professional individual. He takes time to explain all the options and answer all my questions.
he was very friendly, shook my hand and very professional, was very knowledgable. he even answered questions that wasn't pertaining to why i was there, he has a nice spirit and i would definitely recommend him to family and friends.
Very pleasant visit, took care of all of my concerns. So happy is is back at Four Eyes.
It was great
The waiting and the Optometrist were both excellent. Dr. Brodak is highly knowledgeable about his field and answered every question I had thoroughly. Out of 3 or so eye doctors I have had, Dr. Brodak is without a doubt the best. However, what I was extremely annoyed about was the support staff. One of them spoke extremely quietly so I had to keep straining my ear to understand him. They are so slow in processing things that a one hour appointment turned into two hours. They are also unclear about explaining their policies. I am rating Dr. Brodak a 5 because this site is about the professional and not the business.
Very professional and staff knowledgeable.
Dr. Brodak is very professional and friendly. Definitely recommended.
