Though I filled all the information online, I was asked to refill the info as they were not able to locate my records. It was time consuming and needs professional training

The doctors was very nice. Our appointment was 11 and 11 30. And its 1 14 and we are still here. I really don't understand why its taking so long. I guess this is the Medicaid treatment.

The staff was nice and they accepted my discount plan through Eye Med (even though I do not have vision insurance). The doctor was very professional and explained me everything I needed to know regarding my eye health. I feel comfortable going back in the future.

Dr. Hayter and his entire team were very professional. The office was very well kept and clean. I'm new to Texas and actually got lost using my navigation which put me about 20 minutes away from the doctor and I wasstill able to be seen without having to reschedule. Dr. Heyter and his team definitely get an A+ in my book.

In their defense, I was 15 mins late for my appointment and they were incredibly gracious about letting me come in anway. Every one else who came in only seemed to wait 5-10 mins at the most for them to becalled back. I was totally fine waiting. Every one was so professional and pleasant. They explained everything clearly and at the end, I was handed my script with a copy of my charges without having to ask. I will go back Thursday for my contact lenses follow up and was told they'll give me that script on Thursday. They just want to make sure it's good.

Dr. Hayter was extremely courteous and explained every test he was performing as he was doing them. His female assistant (didn't catch her name) was kind and did the first half of tests. His two male assistants, Tim and Josh, werehelpful when I needed to pick out a pair of glasses. Tim was by far the most genuine assistant I've encountered when choosing glasses and making sure I had everything that fits my needs. My head/jaw/eyeline is ever so crooked, and he fixed the glasses to where they sctually sit straight on my face!! I never knew that was even possible... Every other place I've gone simply had me pick the out a frame, and that was that. No additional comments or offers when I'd say I work on a computer 40 hours a week and no offers when I'd ask about transition lenses. I'm definitely recommending Dr. Hayter and his team for my mom at least!! Any other friends of mine with glasses will hear about him too!

First time there like 6 months ago. Waited more than 30 min for the doctor. Then I booked a second appointment only to figure out they have moved the office to a new location and do not accept my insurance anymore, which is contrary to what they publicly state on Zocdoc, and they never updated all these information. Very disorganized.

The staff was very professional as we walked in we were greeted and attended right away I even came in with two small children and the staff was very helpful and they went out of their way to make surethat the kids would stay calm so the appointment could go as smoothly as possible. The appointment took longer than expected more than likely because of the situation with my vision but the route of all they remain professional and didn't make me feel like they were being they were rushing
