Office staff friendly but had to wait 10-15 minutes at a couple points: after checking in, after seeing nurse. Doctor genial enough but seemed curt: didn't ask if he could dilate eyes, which I think is a big no no. Didn'tperform any advanced tests--puffer machine, retina mapping--even though I was a new patient, because he said I was too young to have issues. While I appreciate the optimism, isn't the point of testing to catch issues ahead of time?

I liked my visit. Getting into the back to start the exam took 45 minutes which was frustrating given that I did the paperwork online to speed things up. Once things got rolling, it was good. I wish the doctor wouldhave explained what he was checking as the appt was going along especially since I was a new patient. He did a different version of an eye pressure test and it was different. I wish he would have told me so that I knew what was going on. It worked out fine and he was very nice. I just learned quickly that I have to ask questions because he wasn't volunteering information. Everyone was accommodating though as soon as they learned I had to leave by a certain time for another appt. Really appreciated that!

The visit with Dr Keyser was extremely professional and helpful. He took care of me very well and provided everything that I needed to get my proper glasses. I felt just a little misled on the fact that the lens providerdoesnt in fact take my type of insurance, but then again i never asked i just assumed. Overall the visit was great and would recommend Dr Keyser to others as well.

I was 15 minutes early and still didn't get taken back till almost 10 after. I waited at least 5 minutes for the doctor to even come in and he wasn't terribly friendly when he finally did. He dilated my eyeswhich I am usually offered to opt out of and wasn't planning to do today. I didn't feel I could say no and now I am unable to see the board for my math test. He didn't seem to care how I felt about being surprised by the dilation

Like most eye docs I've been to, Robert seemed like he was in a hurry (I assume due to patient load). But, he was informative, answered my questions, and made responsible recommendations based on the results of my screening.

Dr. Keyser is as knowledgeable as he is cordial. But I felt like he was a little quick with his patients. It seemed as if he only had five minutes to spend with me before having to hurry off to anotherexam room. I suppose the fact that his office is so busy is a sign that he is good at what he does. I just would have appreciated a little more time with him, that's all.
