Walking in to a new place is sometimes difficult for me. I felt welcome as soon as I arrived. I was 15 min early for my appointment and I was out quickly with all of the exam things done. The pricing for new lenses for me was good. I will be going back next year.

The office was clean and everyone was extremely professional and courteous! They even found a discount through my insurance that I was not aware of. Best of all, there were no high pressure sales tactics. The office ladies had me look at frames anyway, of course, but when I mentioned I was on a pretty strict budget they respected that without pressure. The exam itself was very professional and streamlined and Dr Gelb was very thorough. I have a high vision prescription, so it was great to be in such good hands!

I was impressed with the office space and friendliness of the staff. Dr. Gelb herself was very kind and listened to all of my concerns thoroughly. Only thing I did notice was that my appointment felt a little rushed. My annual vision exam only took about 5 minutes when I'm normally used to a more in depth exam. Other than that, I thought she did a great job.
