After my exam with the very thorough & pleasant Dr. Michael Negrey, I realized why my wait was longer than usual. Being an RN, I can recognize these factors and be more understanding to the wait. Reason: Dr. Michael takes histime with each patient, asks pertinent questions, and answers so the patient understands, regardless of the patient's profession, (i.e. medical professional). He also answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. The office staff was extremely pleasant and patient.

The doctor was fine. But the overall experience was unacceptable. I waited an hour and ten minutes to see the doctor and was in the office over two hours for a routine eye exam. I was called into an exam roomby an aide for a brief eye chart reading after waiting a 35 minutes only to be sent back to the waiting room to wait another 35 minutes. The only possible explanation for this exactly half way bait and switch (you will be seen now...ooops just kidding) was to give me the impression I was being served and keep me from thinking I should leave. This office is clearly too busy to be taking new patients. No one seemed to note that my experience was unusual or worthy of any consideration. If I treated my clients this way, I wouldn't have any. My rating is not a review of the skill or manner of the doctor but of the practice itself: Very poor.

Long wait . Receptionist was a little cold at first got better as time went on but you only get one first impression . Confusion with what insurance covers and was told separate appointment for contact and glasses prescriptions was necessary. That needs to be pointed out in the literature so people aren't misled.

Everyone was friendly in the office; however, as a senior citizen with Medicare, this was the first time I was ever charged for the drops to dilate my eyes which is not covered by Medicare; my previous eye doctor never charged for that.

Dr. Negrey took a lot of time explaining what he did and why he did it. He was friendly approachable and I felt very well taken care of. I am a physician myself and I can highly recommend him for familymembers friends and patients because of his solid knowledge (as far as I can tell) and his great "bed-side" manner!

Never thought I'd take the time to write a review, but after this visit, I have to...I was told my appointment would start at 1:15- it didn't start until after 1:30 - I was handed off from person to person andthey continued asking me for information that I had already provided days earlier on this website. So that was annoying and redundant. The actual testing of my eyes was fine, but to top things off, I paid and left and they never gave me the freakin' prescription! (yes, that's partially my fault) - but I felt ushered around and passed off like a piece of cattle, so I must not have been thinking clearly. Don't get me wrong, each of the several people who saw me were friendly, but I got the impression of a mass-production operation at this place- it was just weird. I will not be returning. Well, I have to return to pick up my freakin' prescription, but not after that! :)
