Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Bold was very personable and intelligent. He made my eye strain completely go away - it was magic. I spent so much money on pills and potions for my fatigue, but realized that it was my eyes that were the issue!! The wait was long, but it’s because dr Bold treats each patient very carefully and in depth. He is very passionate
Very thorough evaluation!
Thorough exolanations, patience with all my questions, a kind and charismatic man who's been in practice for two decades. Definitely will be back.
Such amazing staff! Very helpful and very attentive. I did wait for about 15 to 20 minutes to be seen, but honestly I didn't mind. Considering the fact that Dr. Bold took the time to thoroughly explain to each one of his patients what is going on . Once I was seen it all happened so fast. He answered every question I had was very knowledgeable and very patient. Genuinely one of the best eye doctors I've been too!
They didn't take my insurance even though the site said they did. The front desk made me pay in cash and said I had to submit my claim myself.
Everything was perfect. Doctor was nice and very kind. I would recommend to others.
He was very knowledgeable and friendly. Gave me a LOT of information and explained everything in detail. Wonderful doctor and staff!

What an amazing office! Loved everyone there. Hector was so thorough and friendly. Doc Bold is friendly and so very good at making his patients comfortable. Great exam, and excellent results. Been wearing my new contacts on a bike ride and then all night and they feel wonderful. I was way overdue for a checkup and left there feeling like I had a fresh new pair of eyes! Highly reccommended :)

Nicest staff I have ever dealt with. It was my daughter's first eye exam and she was a little nervous. The entire staff made the extra effort to ensure she felt comfortable and relaxed. By the time it was done she was asking when her next appt. would be.
Excellent..super friendly! I will be back!
Excellent service. Thanks.
Dr. Bold was very nice, informative, and thorough. All my needs and questions where meet with a helpful staff and great Doctor. Thanks Dr. Bold
One of the very most comprehensive eye exams I've ever had, He touched all the bases and got right to the problem. I'm very pleased with his professional manner.
The visit was ok however, the doctor never told me that he would not order my contacts until a second appointment. They billed me and I thought meant my contacts would be in but then they stated they never ordered them. They corrected the issue however it was a large inconvenience.
Informative, realistic, and honest. He didn't up sell me on anything and was very prompt but attentive.
Great visit, can't wait for my new glasses :)
