Michelle is fantastic! You can definitely trust the care of your eyes to her.
Dr.Blas was amazing. She is extremely knowledgable, really understands what needs to be done and ultimately makes you feel like family!
Answered my questions, treated me so well almost as a house guest. Definitely recoomend her.
Michelle was super thoughtful and thorough. I've been looking for a local optometrist, and I would definitely go back and recommend her to friends!
Dr. Blas was great! She answered all of my questions in a thoughtful manner, went through my eye check with practiced ease, and even helped me get my measurements for frames if I wanted to order online. The location was easy to access from the 292 bus, as well, which was a pleasant surprise.
It was the first time to visit an eye doctor in the US. So I cannot compare with other doctors. But I’m satisfied with her diagnosis and clear explanation.
Both employees had a little bit of attitude and acted as if my questions were stupid throughout the two visits. I think they should take into account that not everyone has studied optometry and have a friendlier approach to customer service, while also actually following up on recommendations.
Dr. Blas was great! Answered all my questions, was very prompt, kind and professional. Would definitely recommend for anyone to visit her.
Dr. Blast was very nice and very thorough, but also efficient!
Loved Dr. Blas! Had a wonderful visit, absolutely no wait time, and immediate and personal attention to detail. Nice selection of lenses and very personable and hospitable environment. Highly recommended!
I would highly recommend coming here. I was seen right away and the service was great!
Michelle was really sweet and was great at explaining step by step what she was doing and answered all my questions thoroughly. I thought it was convenient that her office was inside a glasses store because I was able to pick out my frame there instead of going elsewhere, which saves me time and stress.
Great experience, no wait time! Helped me choose out my first glasses!
Thanks so much, Michelle. Appreciate your time!
Caring, white-glove service. Highly recommend.
Great atmosphere, smooth process, expert advice (on both style and prescription). An all around great experience.
They were very nice and accommodating. I don't think it was the best setup, but she seemed to have a fair amount of tools. One thing I didn't notice is that it's mainly an eye store, with an Optometrist in it in the back room, not a full-blown optometrist clinic.
The visit it was great. DR. Michelle Blas find out what really was my problem with my eye. Finally I found the right doctor who knew right away my issue.
Dr. Blas was very professional, friendly, and made me feel very comfortable when I was feeling miserable with a scratched eye. I was helped right away when I walked in the clinic. I will definitely be back to see Dr. Blas for future optometrist needs!
