Dr S. Melzer was very professional, thorough, and answered any questions I had regarding my vision that I had been wondering about for a long time. So pleased with her manner and this office also had done cataract surgery on my Mother which helped her tremendously. Beth also was very helping and thorough in her examining of my eyes. Also, I finally got a good eye glass prescription and was able to get glasses right in the office there with Christine. It is all so convenient too. The front desk staff were perfect also and very efficient.

I thought the technician who checked me in was very friendly. Dr. Melzer has excellent beside manner and took time to explain things (it's rare to find a doctor who doesn't rush your appointment). I found her very informative and nice. Even the technician who handles ordering the contacts (Julie) was extremely nice. They do not accept my vision insurance at that office, but I think I will continue going there, because I had such a positive experience.
