I enjoyed my routine eye exam with Dr Hampel. The best part during this appointment was I bypassed all the tech and he directly tested my eyes.

Disappointed the check up wasn’t comprehensive to include contact exam. I wish I had been told up front

It was fine, a little old school but I left with avision care prescription and we'll see how well my glasses work. I used this clinic because they accept partial payment from my Providence Medicare Advantage Plan and my previous vision care provider did not.

I do not understand what happened in my visit to the optometrist, the main reason for this visit was to do a test to use contact lenses, but I do not know what happened in the end what they did was the test to use eyeglasses

Please be aware that they cannot write a prescription for contact lenses at this office!! You will have to make another appointment with another doctor if you need a contact prescription! (This is not something that was explained to me whenI made the appointment AND I feel that this is highly unusual for an optometrist) This was my first appointment at this office and it was also the first time in my 20 years of eye appointment experience that a tech completed the large majority of exam. Both the doctor and tech were extremely friendly, but the tech was unable to answer the majority of my questions & with the doctor I struggled to blurt out my questions between non-stop chatting about trivial topics. When I did get my questions out, I was made to feel silly for being so concerned... about my EYE SIGHT. Overall for a basic check up, this place is fine - I would recommend it for young kids. But if you need contacts or just would like an in-depth consultation, I would go somewhere else.

They’re not care much for patients, just try to get done and leave, don’t give patients chance to ask questions or concern. Meanwhile, the waiting time is too long

Mildly personal, Dr Hampel likes to address his patients by their first name far better than any doctor I've known in this area. He must have reviewed my records before my appointment and make recommendation that is to my benefit. All this and still very professional.

I have a prescription that many eye doctors have balked at trying to figure out. But not Dr. Hampel. I have been going to him exclusively for the last 8+ years and he has tried every combination of contacts available inmy prescription in order to help me find the best vision with the most comfort. I highly recommend him for his patience, good nature, knowledge and perseverance.

My visit was ok. A technician performed 95% of my exam, and at the very end, Dr Hampel looked inside my dilated eyes with the very bright light and the magnifying glass type thing. It was the very end of theday and my freeway drive to the office was exhausting and frustrating. The doctor's office has nothing to do w/ that, of course but I cant help but think it would have been a different kind of visit under difference circumstances. This isn't the best eye doctor I've been to, but he wasn't the worst either.... I don't have my lenses yet so I don't know how I feel about the result in terms of being able to see clearly until I get my prescription.

The front lady was very nice and because I filled out my paperwork through Zocdoc I did not have to fill out any forms. The initial techs could be a bit more personable but Dr Hampel was Awesome! He is verynice, and really thorough with the exam making sure my prescription is perfect. Also the lady who helped me order my glasses was very nice and they have all the latest frames and lens options.

Dr. Hampel was a chill down to earth guy, I came in, we chit chatted for a few, joked around informally etc. However he was very good and professional, the whole process took 20-30 min maybe, he answered any questions Ihad and sent me on my way, no fuss no muss, I was in and out in about an hour. Overall it was a very pleasant experience and I wish more doctors were like this.

The receptionist was great the doctor was great it was the doctors assistance that was a turn off. She did not communicate clearly waft was going on ( mumbling, talking way to fast, no eye contact, horrible bedside manor and attitude.She was not a people person and it showed!) when I did asker her questions or tried to ask her to repeat what she said she continued to talk fast and unclear ( had Indian accent that made it difficult for ME to understand her. She treated me as if I was supposed to know exactly what to do for a regular basic eye exam! I think I have had 3 eye exams in the past 20 years! Total turn off, I will never return to this office!!!!!

He was polite but dismissive. I let him know I had allergies and he didn't take my concerns seriously. He gave me eye drops that contained an allergen and I had a reaction that caused me to have to leave beforeI could fully get finished ordering my glasses. I needed to leave to get benadryl.
