I've been seeing Dr. Amin for many years. She is truly fantastic and I wouldn't consider going to anyone else. From the very start, she's always been very thorough, very personable and makes sure to take time to answer any questionsor concerns. The staff is great too, and wait time has never been an issue. Highly recommend!

Great experience in this office. The doctor saw me right away and was very friendly and efficient. She addressed every issue I’d been having and took the time to explain why I experience this and what we could do to fixit. The office staff did not pressure me in to buying anything that I didn’t need/want. I highly recommend this doctor!!

Dr. Amin is absolutely a class act! Not only was she speedy and efficient but was very thorough in making sure my concerns were addressed and I feel confident in our treatment plan moving forward. I will definitely be keeping thisdoctor! ** ALSO: my gender identity is transgender-nonbinary, and I can affirm with great enthusiasm that this is a queer-friendly/safe space!! If you add notes to your appointment booking that your gender does not match what was assigned to you at birth/on your insurance card and mention what your pronouns are, they will use whatever you put. Couldn't tell you what I'd give to have this experience at every doctor I visited!

This office is one of the most sales-y environments that I have ever entered. The entire time that I was there I felt as though their only motivation was to sell and not to look after my health. Their were interestedin tell me about the latest lenses, coatings, and contacts. They pushed me to book follow up appointments to try different things and kept telling me how much money my insurance would give me. This place feels like a sales office not a doctors office.

I didn't feel like I was a patient rather a customer that was being pushed into purchasing frames/lens despite only coming in to renew a prescription. Staff was clearly annoyed when I chose not to purchase anything and made for anuncomfortable experience. The doctor however, did seem knowledgeable and explained everything clearly and efficiently. Still probably won't be returning as it felt more like a shop than doctor's office.

I "liked" Dr. Amin but overall had a poor experience at Village Eyecare. The office is very run-down (chair is cracked with duct tape on it, appointment room is a closet) and located in the back of a glasses store whichmeant that most of my appointment was driven towards discussing what set of contacts or glasses I would be purchasing upfront at the end of the appointment. Overall, I felt as though the appointment was rushed and that I was being pushed to buy a type of contact that I had repeatedly stated didn't feel comfortable in my eye but was told were very popular... The front staff were very rude and became even more so when I asked to have a copy of my prescription while I thought about whether or not I wanted to order a new set of contacts. Overall, would not recommend and will plan to go elsewhere.
