Very nice office, friendly and helpful staff. Took the time to thoroughly explain my insurance benfits without me having to ask. They answered all of my questions and were very patient and not pushy. Really enjoyed this office visit, Dr. Idris was very nice and knowledgeable. She really took her time with me, I did not feel rushed in any way.
Very impressed with overall experience. Doctor is very knowledgeable and explains the underlying problems and accurate medicines . Also, staff is very humble and shows interest on your insurance aspects. Highly recommended.
Dr. Idris was very kind and easy going. I wasn't rushed through my appointment. She was very thorough and her staff helped me to pick a frame that was comfortable, reasonably priced, and stylish. It was a pleasant visit and I plan to use her for future appointments for myself and family.
Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend. My son is 4 and very active but she still managed to do a thorough exam.
Dr. Idris was professional and explained things well in the appointment. The office staff/technician was helpful and explained billing and charges well. He was very good at helping with frame selection.
Dr. Samia is a knowledgeable doctor, only recommends what exactly is needed. Doesnt try to cross sell. Spends good amount of time with the patient. Office staff is very cordial too. I am glad that I have found a good eye doctor.
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 going to 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!
Very descriptive, patient, and very kind!
I've been going to Samia for a few years. Always prompt, professional and willing to answer any questions.
Everyone was very friendly. I love being able to book an appt online too.
The eye exam was straight forward. The office was efficient and wait times were minimal.
Enjoyable experience, great group of people working there.
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 out of 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. ??
Doctor Samia Idris does really take time to answer questions and listen to comments during the appointment, she is very courteous and attentive. S Her examination is very thorough.

Great, it was a small office but they were efficient and very competent. They were friendly and very accommodating. I appreciate them talking to me throughout the process.
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 him pick 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.
Awesome experience after 22 years of not visiting the Doctor. Very professional and friendly staff :-)
It was a comfortable visit with doc. I will appreciate if they cut a little price of frames :) Thanks.

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 fitting only 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!
