Great doctor, spent the time to look at my eye issues and gave me a prescription. They don't have a very large selection of glasses tho.

I switched from a provider whom I used for over 6years to Clarity and It was really well worth it Dr Hendrickson tested our my wife and I in the scheduled time and was very patient in listening to us TheDr Assistant broke down the prescription cost by eye and wrote down the offers available and never forced us to commit to filling it I requested to provide the correct contact lens sample per the prescription and they complied (as the one used in testing wasn't what was prescribed)

Stellar doctor, staff and atmosphere—warm and friendly, but also tech-slick and professional. I'm a relentless question asker and all my questions were received and answered patiently, thoughtfully, throughly and professionally. I neverfelt rushed. These people love what they do, and it shows. So happy to have "found clarity" at last. Thank You!

It was my first time at this office and everyone was very kind and helpful. Dr Hendrickson in particular really took the time to get my contact fitting right. My eyes are more difficult than most to fit, and he’s thefirst doctor I’ve had that clearly wanted to get it right. Even though it took extra time, he didn’t rush me. I will come back and will highly recommend him to others as well.

He was very thorough. I was told by another eye doctor that I had macular degeneration. At the time I was 35 years old. Dr. Hendrickson confirmed that I do not actually have it. Which was great news. Although every timeI see an eye Dr I am always diagnosed differently. I do have to say that I don't believe he was correct with my diagnosis, but that can be fixed. I still believe he is a good Dr, and I have booked an appt for my daughter as well.

It’s been 10 years since I’ve had a vision exam and my daughter needed her kindergarten exam. The appointment was made online and they called me to confirm and offered earlier times that we’re not on Zocdoc. They were accommodating tomake back to back appointments so we could be seen together. We were seen right at he appointment time and they were very patient with my daughter and calming her fears. Dr. Hendrickson explained what he was doing and why. Already made our follow up appointments for next year.

There were several problems. The doctor suggested vision correction surgery even though my prescription is less than -2. I didn't ask for it. Also, low quality glasses (mass produced made in China frames, and didn't love the outcome of the Rx)even though I paid a pretty penny for them. I would never go back.

Unfortunately for me, I do not have the best vision. Dr. Hendrickson thought it would be a good idea to make a joke about it and hurt my feelings. Seriously, a lack of empathy about eye issues from an eye doctor!Also, there is very little privacy - vision pre-screening is done in an open area so the entire waiting room will hear just how bad your vision is. Finally, lock your car! The practice shares a parking lot with the DMV and there shade people walking though the lot. I heard two separate car alarms going off while in the lobby.

Dr. Hendrickson was very welcoming and thorough. I have had other eye doctors that did not seem like they cared about my well-being nor my experience and my visit with Dr. Hendrickson was the complete opposite. I left feeling confident that I received the highest care possible.

It was an excellent experience..however I do feel the fit for a contact lense exam is a bit expensive Considering you have to pay for the lenses as well.
