Everyone there was remarkably personable and kind.
Best eye doctor experience in Chicago. Highly recommend.
I am VERY upset with how the "Follow-Up" visit went. My first visit was to get a new prescription for contacts - it went well, and I was asked to come back in about a week to 10 days for a follow-up to make sure the contacts fit correctly so I could order more. I waited 40 MINUTES and finally the front desk associate noticed how angry I was and asked if the contacts fit well and if I wanted to go ahead and order some. Since that's what I came for, I said yes and she said that I didn't need to wait around for the follow-up. How rude. Next time, don't schedule me for a follow-up if you aren't really going to CHECK HOW THE CONTACTS ARE FITTING on my eyes.
Excellent service. The staff was very friendly and professional.
He and the office staff were very professional
Dr Meifert is great. Knowledgeable and friendly. His front office staff left a little to be desired though and the wait time was too long.
Best one so far in my 10 yrs of wearing contacts!
Dr. Meifert was very personable and he gave me an honest assessment of my needs. There are not too many eye doctors who will tell you that you don't really need new glasses because your prescription has not changed very much. Wow. I got glasses anyway but was so grateful for his honesty. The staff was very helpful. There were so many wonderful choices of glasses. Great first impression.
Staff and doctor were perfectly capable, got me in and out quickly.
Dr. Meifert takes his time with his patients and does not rush through things like other doctors commonly do. He makes an effort to get to know you and is always willing to answer questions. I have visited his office twice and both experiences have been very pleasant!
Hands down best eye doctor experience I have had! Dr. Meifert took his time during my evaluation and was very professional. His staff was great as well. People at the desk were welcoming and friendly. Gabe worked patiently with me for over 2 hours to make sure I was comfortable with my new contacts. Would definitely recommend this practice to anyone needing a new optometrist in Chicago.
Dr. meifert always engages in conversation and makes me feel at ease. I came in for a general check up, I have good vision so no concerns there. He ran the eye exam and everything went smoothly. Will be back.
Very friendly and made getting my eyes checked enjoyable!
Dr. Meifert made me feel at ease, while getting information from you and being conversational at the same time . The exam went smoothly and he took the time and care to explain and answer all questions and procedures .
Excellent doctor- he was efficient but thorough, made sure I understood and was comfortable with everything, and very friendly. Will definitely be going back.
It was great, thanks! I'll be back soon to pick out new frames.
I liked Dr. Meifert just fine as I fine him to be pleasant and professional. I however, can't recommend the place he works for as it's a rip-off if you're paying without insurance. I think this place should only do business with insurance companies as they seem to think everyone has the same money as the insurance companies with the prices they charge.
Very professional and helpful. Great visit.
Efficient office and great service.
Great staff, in and out in no time. Dr. Meifert was really helpful in answering any questions and even gave me a sample set of contacts to try out since I didn't have any ordered yet.
I have to compliment the entire staff of Dean Optical, they were courteous, respectful, and very professional in conducting the eye examination. I have no complaint with their service.
He explained my condition in easy to understand terms. Outlined several courses of action that I could take. It was so easy to get an appointment. The office was very pleasant.
Really liked him
Dr. Meifert was very nice and approachable. I strongly recommend him.
High tech equipment...Dr Meifort is the best.
Excellent Doctor, very engaging, he listens and is willing to work with you to be sure your vision is the best that it can be.
Dr. Meifert was extremely friendly, answered all of my questions, and was patient and thorough. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Meifert was excellent and I would highly recommend him. He listened to my issues and provided great feedback and recommendations. The entire office staff was nice and made me feel very comfortable on my first visit.
Knowledgeable, Professional, Friendly
He is great. There are few providers who are so relaxed and accommodating. However, it would have been good to be notified by the desk staff that, had I waited two more months, my insurance would have covered the visit. I realize that I should also have been aware of this, but given that this is probably fairly standard (not to mention the amount of money that I spend on frames), this would have been good customer service. I provided my insurance information well in advance of the appointment.
I've been seeing Dr. Meifert for over 17 years, and I would go to no other eye doctor.
Great bedside manner. Very professional and knowledgeable.
Great experience, super nice guy, very thorough.
Great experience. Thorough and caring.
The doctor was Very polite and knowledgable. Tom Green fitted me for my frames and couldn't have been more of a pleasure to work with! Overall very pleased with the experience.
It was great - friendly and efficient office staff, Dr. Meifert was awesome, professional but not "stuffy". Very efficient but not rushed.
Highly recommended - the best OD that I've had so far in life.
Dr. Meifert was really nice and helpful. The person conducting the vision tests such as the poof of air and taking the pictures of your eye was new and had to conduct each test 3 times (including the poof of air test which is no fun). Everyone is new at some point, so not that big of a deal. However, when asking me to read the top line and there were only boxes on the screen, or asking me which number an arrow was pointing to when no arrow was present, made me question the validity of these tests and their results. Perhaps some more training would be beneficial in this area. Next time, I would prefer to opt out of this 45min training exercise that I paid for with both time and money and would choose to just see Dr. Meifert (who was awesome) or go to another place all together.
