I went to this office for an annual eye exam and glasses prescription. Unfortunately for me it was not communicate thatthey were choosing to do a medical evaluation. My vision benefits covers routine exams but not medical evaluations. I am very disappointed to be stuck with charges that I was not anticipating. I did check with my insurance company about this but they could not seem to help me.

The doctor was throughout. I felt he was having everyone make a follow up appointment. I dont even know why Ihave to ho back, other than he said so. The intake person that took me in the room and did the initial testing was terrible. Nice lady but very unskilled. I was at the office for 2 hours. There is no reason for that. I completed my paperwork with Zocdoc and printed them. The office did not have it and still had to input the data in the computer. Im very disappointed.

The doctor was wonderful and I would recommend him to everyone. He is thorough and will answer any questions. The gentleman who fits for glasses is great at what he does also. The paperwork practices in the office suck! Everythingcompleted is for the protection of the office and I felt like a criminal. The staff wanted to take my picture even though I had already supplied a license and they wanted my social security number even though insurance companies have encouraged discontinued use of that procedure. I refused the picture and am still pissed about them requiring a ss number because it is only to send you to a credit bureau if you don't pay but if there is insurance there is no need for that,
