The office staff and the doctor were exceptional. Funny, spirited, lots of belly laughs before and during my exam. The doctor is knowledgeable, personable and warm. I felt like I had made a batch of new friends when i left. Iwill definitely be back for any of my eye care needs. Highly recommended!

Great staff. My only complaint was that they made me fill out paperwork when I had already done it online. Other than that Dr. Limits was great.

I waited more than 30 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. Once seen, the doctor was personable. I had to wait again for someone to come run tests and review the results in the middle of my appointment. Prices for contactlenses are DOUBLE what they were at my last doctor. (I didn't purchase here because of this.)

Dr. Zaks is always great. Just felt slow waiting around for him and he was stopping and going throughout the appointment. There are a lot of great things but today there was also a lot of bad. May give it anothershot before I might change to another eye doctor

I like Dr. Zakheim, but it took 3 visits to determine my correct contact prescription and I just did not have time to keep going to appointments so now buy my contacts online.

Dr. Zakhiem is by far the best optometrist I've been to. He is very informative; explaining everything he is checking as he does it. After my check up, he kindly took time to answer all of my questions and even wentas far as to make recommendations on which lenses to look for. Very satisfied!

I would highly recommend Dr. Zakheim. His staff was both friendly and professional. He was thorough in his exam and took the time to give me detailed explanations to all of my questions. Furthermore, his thoroughness helped reveal that two eyedoctors previously they over-prescribed my lenses. Dr. Zakheim took the time to figure this out and explain how and why he came to that conclusions. I would highly recommend both him and his professional staff.

I visited Dr. Zakheim because I've been having headaches and dizziness that I believe are at least somewhat related to my vision. He listened to everything I had to say and answered all of my questions, ran several tests to geta profile of my vision, and helped me with a solution to my specific problem. He even referred me to an ENT he thought would help with other elements of my condition. He clearly cared, and that made a difference. I would recommend Dr. Zakheim.

I went in a stranger and left feeling like I had been helped by several good friends. Michelle is knowledgeable and kind. Simon is attentive and accomodating. Dr Kimura is thorough and precise. But, Brent is one absolutely amazing human being!!!He listened and then honestly steered me only towards and reminded me of what I said I wanted. For once, I am excited and confident about my choice of eyewear and sunglasses. Optometrix... a class act!!!!

Dr. Zakheim is one of the world's rare doctors who still takes time to get to know his patients and genuinely cares about their health and wellbeing. In addition to being super adorable, he's kind, respectful, and funny. He's a 10out of 10 in absolutely every way, and his office staff is amazing. I adore them all!
