Excellent annual vision appointment. The doctor is thorough in his current evaluation as well as vision improvements that should be attended to in 2-3 years down the road.

I scheduled my husband at 9:30 am and my appt at 10:30 am. My husband's appt did not show up for the doctor, but mine did. So. . .they had two other appointments also scheduled between our two appointments, with oneat the same time as his. So. . .you need to work out how this app works in sync with the doctor's appointment system.

Dr. Golitz, was prompt, pleasant, helpful, and kind. I had also brought in a pair of my daughter's glasses that had lost a screw and one of the other staff there quickly fixed it for free. If you have to haveyour eyes looked at every year like I do, Dr. Golitz's office is a great place to visit.

I've been going for years. It's a no-nonsense office, you get in, you get your exam, order your contacts and go. Not the WIDEST selection of glasses frames, but the prices are more reasonable than some East-side oculist shops I've been to.

I have been seeing Michael Golitz, OD for many years and have always been happy with his care. I have very poor vision that require contacts to get good correction. I am careful to have annual exams to make sure everything is well!

I arrived early and was able to get right in to see Dr. Golitz. He took time to explain the condition of my eyes and the various options for lenses and future treatments, and he answered my questions fully. He was cheerful and funny, and I appreciated his low-key manner!

Dr. Golitz is so accomodating. At the time of trying to schedule a much needed appointment, I was beyond disappointed and overwhelmed with guiold when my 18+ hour work days simply did not allow me the ability to follow through withtwo scheduled appointments. Although I have not been able to reschedule yet with Dr. Golitz, I hope to be given another opportunity to visit him soon now that my schedule has calmed down.... I have known and trusted Dr. Golitz both on a professional and personal level for over 15 years, and sincerely would adamantly recommend seeing him before any other optometrist.

Though the Dr was behind (late in the day, that happens), when he got to me he didn't make me feel rushed at all, and gave me all the time I needed. I personally didn't mind waiting my turn, because Ijust tried on frames, looking for new ones (which I would've done after my appointment anyway). The office staff is all very friendly and helpful. Dr Golitz himself is friendly and always answers my questions with really good explanations.

This was Brianna's first visit to see an optometrist. We knew she needed glasses and it was kind of a scary thought for her. Dr Golitz took the time and explained each step making her first visit very pleasant. It hadbeen several years since my last Dr's appt and the office staff made it possible to see me as well, on a moments notice. I had been a long time customer of Lens crafter's and have now found a new DR. .The difference in professionalism,Price and demeanor of the entire staff deserves two thumbs up all across the board.
