Verified Patient Reviews
Very friendly staff and exam was thorough and quick. Would definitely recommend this office.
One of the nicest, if not the nicest, optometrists in town. She's sweet, intelligent, friendly and gets you in and out of your appointment in a timely manner while spending adequate time with you. Recommended to all my family and friends.
Great visit Dr. Bean was very friendly and was great with my son.
Loved DR.Bean. She is super down to earth and polite. Exallent service at a great price.
Over priced and wait way too long, appt at 2:40 had another appt at 4:15 and I was late. Only need glasses and contact script.
Very nice and helpful
Everything was great except the 35 min wait past my appt. time before I was called back for my checkup
Dr. Richelle Bean and the staff at First Eye Care were fantastic! Granted I've lived a fortunate life in that I've never required glasses or contacts until my late thirties, but it doesn't take experience with optometrists to recognize professionalism when you see it.
She is amazing! Fast and explains very well.
Everyone at First Eye Care is so nice. It was a very pleasant experience.
Dr. Bean was great! As a new patient, she made me feel welcome and answered all my questions. She was super friendly and the overall appointment was smooth and quick.
Great staff, short wait, and fantastic facility. 10/10
Very personable and knowledgeable. Makes you feel comfortable and provides service in a very thorough and quick manner. She's been a great optometrist since the first visit and I will go back every time! The office is extremely modern and welcoming. Staff was excellent.
Absolutely the BEST!!!! I was scared, worried, and did not know what was going on. Dr. Bean, and ALL the staff were exceptional in making me feel I was going to be well cared for ( I have been RN for 22 yrs). They got me in, ran all the tests, and I did not sit waiting to be seen. That crew took care of me like no one has ever done and did so like I had been going to them for years! I am moving to San Antonio in a couple weeks, but I can tell you I WILL drive the 4.5 hrs from down there to be seen by Dr. Bean for anything related to my vision! I mean every word!!!!
Very casual and knowledgable. Gave practical and helpful information. Exam felt comprehensive and thorough.
An awesome young doctor. She is very sincere and makes you feel like family. Recommend highly. Works with a great and dedicated staff.
Appointment was for my 7 year old daughter. Dr. Bean was so good to her. Will definitely be back next year!
Receptionist was very nice and knowledgeable. No long wait time. Very nice office. Very friendly staff from beginning to end. Dr. Bean was very friendly and informative. I was very comfortable for my entire visit.
Polite, professional, and very good at what she does. First time visit at the office, and she was amazing. Found my new eye doctor!
Love this place and professional staff, sadly the front desk staff needs serious upgrade. Just one girl try to do her job.
Great bedside manner! Very professional, knowledgable, and nice. Would highly recommend Dr. Bean to anyone looking for an optometrist.
Extremely happy that I found that place, Love it. And the glasses ??????.
Dr. Bean was so sweet and kind, she really did a great job at making me feel welcomed as a new patient and had a lot of great recommendations for my specific situation. She seemed really engaged and eager to help, plus I was in and out of the office in 30 minutes. Would definitely recommend her!
Richelle was awesome and very energetic.
Fabulous experience. Everyone was kind and eager to help.
Dr. Bean is awesome! Friendly, professional, and will take the time to deeply explain any questions you have regarding eye care, disease, etc. Super glad to have her as my optometrist!!
She was great with my five-year-old daughter she's patient and friendly.
Very friendly and understanding
Very pleasant and knowledgeable
Richelle was fantastic! The process was smooth and her assistants were very helpful and understanding with everything. They were personable and made the experience of getting contacts for the first time less stressful
Dr. Bean and staff are very professional! The office is very modern and a great atmosphere. Dr. Bean takes the time to explain everything and listens to all your concerns.
Great service and attention to my healthcare needs.
I think Dr Richelle Bean was fantastic. But I was not happy with the fact that the office did not provide me my Contact lens prescription. I realized later that they have to provide it to me by law. I had to order contact lens through them which is not economical. Also during my visit to pick up the lens, I was kept waiting and the staff provided service to people who arrived after me so overall I would not go back.
Richelle was very friendly and professional. She made sure that I was comfortable and was able to find some contacts that were perfect for me!
Dr. Bean had answers to my questions that no previous eye doctor had been able to explain well. Very friendly; she was focused and invested, but also efficient with our time.
Very nice Doctor. She addressed all concerns and was even patient with my 4 year old whom I had to bring along.
Dr. Bean and her staff are wonderful! Every single person I encountered was friendly and helpful. They even helped me work through my budget to get some really cute frames! Their frame selection is a bit more limited than other "big box" type locations, but the selection is still great and the stellar service is worth having a bit less to choose from. Dr. Bean/First Eye Care will definitely be my permanent Optometry office!
I love my appointment with Dr. Bean. She was absolutely great and helped me figure out my problem. I was so happy. I set an appointment up this morning, and came in no problem at all. I will be back next week, and will continue to come here. Everyone in the office was super nice and helpful the entire time.
The whole staff was very attentive and very professional. At the same time they where very down to earth. Made me feel real comfortable. Dr. Rechelle Bean was very pleasant, very energetic individual. I really enjoyed my visit and will recommend them to everyone.
Dr. Bean and her staff are great. No wait. Dr Bean was in to see me right of the bat. Would recommend her to anyone!
Very efficient process ... NO waiting. An assistant checked my eyes so Dr. Bean had everything she needed when she walked in. She kept me informed during her examination, introduced me to any staff that came in during my time with her, took me to the optician and introduced me. He was great and sensitive to my needs ... didn't try to sell me anything just let me pick out what I needed and explained all costs. Great experience.
Very personable and friendly. Great attitude!
She was wonderful and the staff!

Best eye exam I've ever had! Very thorough!
