This Dr. is a miracle worker. I have been going to the same doctor for over 20 years. They were bought out by a chain, but the service was bad even before that but that was impetus to get me goingto someone new. Dr. Idris was able to fit me with lenses that I could actually see with. Also, bought two pairs of eyeglasses because her selection is awesome!

The service was very friendly and courteous. The doctor even helped me to pick out a frame, that I loved. But to top all that off, her assistant out front went the extra mile to ensure I got the most outof my insurance by researching to find all that was due to me. I was shocked but amazed more so. This is the best service I've ever received. Thanks . I couldn't wait to tell my sister about my blessing. ??

I loved everything about this visit! It was easy to schedule this appt on ZocDoc. We were seen promptly at the office, which was well-kept. Dr. Idris was very knowledgeable and explained everything patiently to my father. She even helped himpick out glasses that would be right for his prescription. I have never had a doctor take the time to do that before! On top of that, the staff were so friendly and patient as well. I will definitely be sending more family members here.

I filled it all of my paperwork online, so there was no wait and no time in the waiting room. Dr. Samia was very patient and kind..... And very fast! I appreciated the fact that my exam and contact lens fittingonly took about 20 minutes, and their prices are pretty good, too. I saved $150 on the visit + a year o contact lenses compared to my previous optometrist. Highly recommended doctor!
