Dr. Visanji was great. She was prompt and answered all of my questions thoroughly. I hadn't had an eye exam in quite some time and was experiencing excessive dryness. Dr. Visanji quickly addressed my concerns and gave me some drops anda quick procedure to fix my issue. So glad I scheduled the appointment with her. I highly recommend.

The contact lenses they prescribe for me do not fit me at all. The diagnose device crashed completely when I needed an exam but they charged me at 100% and asked to come back again to pay additional fee. I will never come back.

I want to start by saying how happy I am with my visit today. Dr. Visanji , was so personable and helpful. The staff was so accommodating and gave me some really great suggestions for frames without being pushy. Ilove the overall vibe of the office and I'll be sure to return for all my ocular needs :)

I went in for glasses & contact lens exam. They called me prior and asked that I bring my current lens to see what I was wearing. I thought that was odd - usually eye doctors ask for the most recentprescription (if it’s your first time at a practice). The glasses exam went fine but it’s the contact lens part where things got way too complicated than necessary. They didn’t have my trial fit and asked that I come back in a few days. Who wants a 2-part eye exam? Not me. Then they insisted I needed to be prescribed contact lens when I specifically went in just for the exam. Overall, the glasses exam was fine but contact lens exam was just too difficult when it really shouldn’t be and has never been for me. It’s a small store so they don’t offer a wide selection of glasses but I did notice a 1 or 2 good frames. In summation, I wouldn’t go back solely due to logistics, especially when after turning me away for being a few mins late to my second attempt of getting a contact lens exam.

Dr. Visanji was wonderful! She was so sweet and kind and answered all of my questions with care. I was in and out of her office quickly. I am a little paranoid about eyes so she was able to do thefull checkup while remaining in my comfort zone. She quickly got me a new eyeglasses prescription. We did not discuss contacts. The store for lenses outside of the office had some great frames, but it was expensive and did not have a huge selection - I chose to go elsewhere.

went in for contacts and ended up getting charged more than my normal copay which was annoying. Then got contacts and they weren't the correct vision for me. Got a replacement pair and one of those seem off as well. Ijust like being in and out of these places but now its taking up too much of my time.

Dr. Visanji and staff were friendly, quite helpful and accommodating to squeeze an appointment in for me. When my usual pharmacy was having computer issues to accept a rx, Dr. Visanji herself phoned in the rx to a local pharmacy, whichwas ready for pickup and allowed my treatment to begin immediately.

Great experience! Went to see her for a blocked gland on my bottom eyelid that has been irritating me for weeks. After having no luck with the antibiotic my general practitioner provided, I'm glad I finally went to see her. Wenton my lunch break and was in and out in under 30 mins. Would definitely recommend her to anyone having irritating eye issues.
