Really sweet, but didn't give me a correct prescription and I'll probably have to go to another doctor to get the correct lenses.

The staff was very friendly and helpful, as was the doctor, but I noticed a few things that made my experience less-than exceptional. This was my first time visiting this doctor. The examination with the bright light and dilation was uncomfortable. I never, ever experienced discomfort (or dilation) with my old doctor. Granted, Dr. Aucoin and the nurses/interns might have been more thorough than my old doctor, but it was still a pretty unpleasant exam. While I was seen by the other members of the team pretty quickly, I waited a long time to actually see the doctor. This is normal of doctors offices, but it's still not fun.

It is always a pleasure to meet with Dr. Aucoin, even for a basic checkup. She is thorough, professional yet friendly, and eager to provide answers to my questions — in short, an excellent OD.

Great, she was very nice and helpful pertaining to my issue. Only thing is, she took a look at my eyes using the yellow dye, and then passed me on to another ophthalmologist, and he ended up doing another examination using the yellow dye. I would suggest just making a report to the second doctor to avoid doing procedures more than once.

This was my first time and I expected to fill out paperwork, so I showed up 10 minutes early. By the time I filled them out and gave them back to the receptionist, it was less than 5 minutes before I was called in to begin. Everyone was courteous and professional. Every procedure was explained and I knew what to expect, from the "puff of air" to the dilation of my eyes. When they asked if I wanted my prescription checked, I just asked them to make sure it was covered by my insurance and they verified before conducting the tests. I felt comfortable being there and would recommend it.

I would have given 5 stars for all categories, but the office was fairly delayed this morning, due to extenuating city-wide travel circumstances that were outside of their control. Other than that, I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Aucoin and the office staff.

I like this practice because you are seen right away for preliminary eye tests. It was about 45 minutes before I saw the Doctor but I was already dilated and ready to be examined. There was never any nonproductive waiting time.

Dr. Aucoin was very professional, helpful, and had a good bedside manner. Her office staff, however, were not so professional. Their policies and pricing were a bit confusing and when you asked questions they were condescending. There was a mix-up on my prescription which when I called to straighten out, the person I spoke with was curt and even so rude as to chuckle when what she explained did not make sense to me. Also wait time was over an hour. Dr. Aucoin was a good doctor but I would not recommend because of her staff.

I liked Dr. Aucoin. I didn't like the way the office was run-- it seemed disorganized. Instead of a greeting when I walked in and said hello, the front desk receptionist pushed the sign-in list toward me without making eye contact. I saw a tech after 30 minutes but then sat again in a waiting area and didn't see the doctor until about an hour after my scheduled appointment time. There were lots of different periods of waiting and moving from one room/seat to another without an explanation of the overall process. For a routine eye exam, I spent over 90 minutes in the office (mostly sitting and waiting to be called).

Only downside is that office assistant used eye drop and did not ask if we were driving. Eye drop made the vision blurry. It was very hard to drive back after the visit.

Aside from the fact that it was an extremely busy office (which, ind you, should suggest more than a long wait. If people are showing up to this practice, it is obviously well-regarded and full of talent), the experience was extremely pleasant. Everyone there, from techs to doctors, were professional and thorough regarding the purpose of my visit. Would definitely go again!

Deposited the fact that I had to wait for about 15 minutes, everything else went super smoothly and easy. Doctor Aucoin and her intern did an amazing job, they were very nice and kind and were willing to answer any questions I had.
