Very eye opening, literally! Everyone was very polite and professional. The doctor was very helpful in explaining the risk of high blood sugar as it relates to my eyes moving forward.

I was sent out with my eyes still dilated without sunglasses, they didn’t do the leg work on my insurance so I had to wait to get that done. Told the doctor I was only there for a new prescription, Ihad to ask twice to have it done, was charged for getting the prescription and had to take my contacts out 3 different times since they couldn’t listen to my request. I will not be back.

First thing he asked me when he came in the door was if I am here because of my diabetes. I do not have diabetes. I have been through hell and back over the last 6 months, going from doctor todoctor because of an unknown illness that has completely disrupted my life, and I just needed a little kindness today. He was incapable of showing any of that. Very insensitive and judgemental. Was in the room for maybe 3 minutes. The whole time he felt the need to give his two cents on obesity and actually had the nerve to tell me to stop over eating. This guy knows nothing about me or my health issues or why I became this way. I just needed to get my eyes looked at. If he kept the topic on what I was there for, I might have given a more kind review. I can say though that the ladies in the office are nice. But this guy needs some sensitivity training. You don't treat people like that. Period.

It was an amazing visit and everyone was very professional and very nice. However, I do think they should make it known that you have to have a medical diagnoses in order to be treated there or to have an eye exam. ??

Dr. Gonte is great. He tells you exactly what is going on, does a very thorough exam, explains everything so you understand. Everyone in the office was friendly, caring, and very professional. I scheduled the appointment online, but then neededan earlier appointment so I called and they got us in the very next morning. We only waited about 8 minutes before being seen.

Happy with how he examined my eyes for floaters. Took his time-used another scope/tool to check my right eye when I had doubts about halos vs. floaters. Will recommend my family to him.
