I think he's a great eye doctor. The office space leaves a bit to be desired. The waiting room is too small given that everyone needs to be out there both waiting for the appointment and then waiting for dilation. The couch is very uncomfortable and not enough chairs. They also have a guest wifi network but it requires a password and when I asked the medical assistant for it, she said they were not allowed to share it because of HIPAA, which is absurd. Almost all doctors' offices now have wifi access for patients and it has nothing to do with patient records or HIPAA regulations. In any event, the check out was quick but they don't give you receipts right away, you have to wait for the offsite billing department, which is annoying if you need these forms to file for third party reimbursement. But Dr. Breingan is an excellent doctor and the office is tolerable.

Dr Breingan and his office are everything a patient in need wants to see when seeking treatment. My paper work was processed swiftly by reception staff, and I was warmly welcomed. I waited a few minutes before being called, and Dr Breingan's medical assistant was sensitive and confident in examining me. When the doctor saw me, he promptly and confidently diagnosed me with a corneal ulcer - a prior doctor had dismissed it as mere irritation! - and immediately gave me pain relief. I felt so taken care of in his warm yet extremely efficient office - so beautifully run. That's to say nothing of the immense professionalism of the place - left and right I was called "Mr Wright". I felt 1000% better upon returning to work that day.

Dr. Breingan and his office staff were all exceptionally friendly and patient. I had a thorough eye exam, opted into the extra screenings, and was satisfied with the results. I have a new glasses script and was given guidance for future measures to take should my lazy eye and loss of eye focus were to get worse. The doctor seemed exceptionally knowledgeable and didn't rush me, answered all of my questions, and was still on time and efficient. I will be back for future eye appointments! I was, however, confused on how the glasses testing was an out of pocket expense. Seemed to me like something my eye insurance would cover! Regardless, worthwhile and helpful visit.

Dr. Breingan was very friendly and attentive. The office had my prefilled forms and only needed to sign a few papers. Although the doctor didn't see me right at my appointment time, I was seen by the nurse ten minutes before to be ready for him. Great experience. Would definitely recommend.

I have been a patient of Dr.Breingan for several years and I would rate him as one of the best doctors I have ever had. .I can not say enough good things about the doctor and about his staff. He is thorough, explains everything in language you can understand, answers all your questions with great patience and never makes you feel rushed or that you didn't have a thorough exam and testing. And he has a great personality and extremely pleasant. The office staff and technicians are very proffesional and very helpful, patient and pleasant..this is one doctor's appointment I don't mind going to. .I feel that my eyes are under the best care at Dr B..I give him and his staff my highest recommendation.

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.

He was just putting drops in my eyes without really explaining them. The office is super dim and seems really old. He may have seemed uninterested in me because he knew he would have to refer me elsewhere because he did not specialize in the issue I was having, but I have still had much, much better experiences elsewhere. Front desk seemed extremely frazzled and tense with each other pointing out each other's mistakes. Just an unprofessional vibe throughout the place. The doctor may be amazing though...he just couldn't do too much but check my eyes for general problems when it came to the issues I am having.
