I could not have asked for a better eye doctor, he is all of the above. I say he’s considerate, understanding, funny, and more so a great doctor. He really takes the time to explain everything as well. I would definitely not hesitate to go back to him.

I never enjoyed too much physical attention to my eyes and was nervous before my appointment. Not anymore, it seems. I experienced Dr. Breingan as sensitive, understanding, non-alarmist with excellent communication skills. At all times he explained to me what was going to happen next and why. Thank you.

I was charged for the visit even though it is covered by my insurance; I didn't find out until I got home that I should not have been charged. The Doctor himself was very nice. The waiting time before the appointmentwas long, with other longish waits once the appointment had started.

Zoc Doc didn't even notify the doctor about my 8:30 am appointment but he saw me right away anyway! Very nice doctor and I got an excellent eye exam with a prescription for glasses that corrected for my astigmytism. I hadbeen wearing glasses for several years that didn't even correct for this

Nice guy, but I felt like he took the 'worst case possible' approach without really offering encouragement. I left feeling pretty hopeless & scared about my acute vertigo. The thing is, it's slowly getting better & feels pretty manageable wminimal drugs. 2 wks ago he was suggesting I take disability or leave of absence. It just seems a little extreme to have given me such a grim prognosis, following it by saying it was something I needed to wait out. Nothing more to do.
