My office visit was very pleasant and helpful. I was helped with picking out the perfect pair of glasses and had all my questions answered in a kind and patient manner. They had me in and out of there so quickly and were able to make my glasses in 20 minutes. This is the only place I could find that could turnaround glasses in less than a week. Highly recommend.

The team reviews your insurance plan with you after the exam; I found this very helpful as I've never used eye insurance before.

Dr. Neil was great! Very relatable, quick, listened to my concerns and addressed them immediately. Gave me candid advice about Lasik, educated me about how contacts work and what they are made of, overall fantastic! I've had dry eyes for a million years it seems and he's working with me to find a better contact. So far so good.

Dr. Boldus is the best eye doctor I've ever visited. He explained everything going on with my eyes (not much, just astigmatism), as well as the function of each of his machines. He was quick, yet thorough -- I've certainly felt rushed by other eye doctors who just wanted me out in the showroom to try on frames and get the big payday from that. I will say the only downside was that he dropped me off not at the front desk to check out, but with one of the team members whose job it is to sell frames. Unfortunately, my insurance doesn't cover much and I"m a teacher, so the frames they sell are well beyond my price range. The girl who helped me was very understanding of that when I kindly let her know that I was going with Warby Parkers instead. :)

Everyone at the office was extremely friendly and professional. The office was comfortable and inviting - free water, soda or coffee and comfy seating while I waited. Me being a terrible procrastinator, I'd waited until I'd run out of contacts to come in. Luckily for me, Dr. Boldus gave me a free pair to wear for the next two weeks, and barring any complications I'll get the rest of my contacts in 3-5 days. I highly recommend Dr. Boldus and Vision Boutique.

He told me my right eye had actually improved. I got some sunglasses with the prescription he gave me to find that was not correct. The vision in my right eye of my sunglasses was blurry compared to my glasses with my old prescription. I recently went to a different eye optometrist to learn my right eye has not gotten better, it's gotten worse.

Can't say enough good things about my experience here. Rather than going on and on, let me put it this way. Overall, I left feeling really taken care of and important. After all, isn't that what being a patient is all about?

Staff was very friendly, especially at the end of the day. The whole visit took longer than I expected -- about an hour from my early arrival until I walked out the door. But overall, a convenient place for an annual eye exam.

I was very pleased with the doctor and staff. His staff was very professional and efficient. The doctor saw me right away and was friendly, to be courteous, but did not waste time on needless chit-chat. He asked relevant questions, conducted his examination, and provided me with very good advice and necessary prescriptions in a matter of 25 minutes.

Doctor and staff were all great. Didn't wait at all. Exam was thorough. If you need glasses, they have a stylish selection of frames, but be forewarned that there aren't a lot of inexpensive lines there. Depending on your insurance and financial situation, you may have to take your script elsewhere for frames.

Just left my first appointment with this office and couldn't be any happier. The staff was so friendly and helpful. I was greeted and made to feel at home immediately. The front desk/eye tech was so nice and she helped me overcome my fear of trying a new set of frames. Dr. Boldus was very welcoming and just an all around cool doctor. He made me feel at ease and comfortable during the entire appointment. I will definitely be going back!

He was very nice, I think it is worth mentioning that this place is a eyeglasses shop with an eye doctor on staff. So be ready for them to sell you glasses. This was fine with me, but be forewarned. Also, this store is not wheelchair accessible or stroller accessible.
