A very confusing and frustrating experience with the front desk. I came in to get an updated contacts prescription so that I could order more lenses online. That was all I requested. At the front desk, the receptionist insisted I giveher my medical health insurance provider. I repeatedly told her that I'd already given the office my vision insurance provider. She did not explain or clarify why the office wanted my medical insurance provider, just repeatedly demanded that I give her the information. I finally just gave her the provider name and she came back with "What is that? I've never even heard of them, we definitely don't take that.". Again, she STILL had not clarified what the insurance information was necessary for, just that they would not accept it. Finally, the other receptionist stepped in, sounding just as exasperated as I was with the other receptionist, and explained that the medical insurance was used in the case that they did a full medical eye exam. I explained that I did not want or require that, and just wanted to get an updated exam for my contacts prescription. She (receptionist #2) told me that was perfectly fine and that my vision insurance provider would be just fine. Dr. Leis was perfectly nice and good at his job, but I will be looking for a better office with more helpful staff.

Dr. Leis is a thorough practitioner. He not only had a number of tests pertaining to my current eye issues run, he also had some for possible inherited eye issues performed. In discussing the results of these tests and his observationsthroughout the exam, he explained why the tests were chosen, what he was looking for and the outlook for my future. He showed me comparisons to my previous results and discussed what I should currently be doing along with what steps I can take to prevent issues in the future. Overall, it was a pleasant and informative experience.

Dr. Leis was incredibly personable, and loved that the office wasn't pushy about buying new glasses on-the-spot - I was able to try a couple of pairs on at my own leisure. Dr. Leis was also very thoughtful, and made sureI didn't have anything critical at work that morning, since my pupils would be dilated for a couple of hours after the examination. Front desk was kind, efficient, and clear about insurance coverage.

The doctor himself was great and very professional. The receptionist was beyond rude and I felt incredibly belittled. When I tried to get some clarification in regards to what my insurance covered she spoke over and would not let me geta word in. I almost had to yell to be heard. Because of this I won’t return to this office.
