Verified Patient Reviews
Very thorough, explains everything - good at answering questions.
It was really nice to be able to fill out the forms online. Dr. Melzer and the other staff members were pleasant and helpful.
Professional and willing to explain when necessary. I was early getting there, and they still began my appointment within 5 minutes of arrival. An assistant did most of the tests, then Dr. Melzer double-checked a few and completed with the cataract assessment.
The office staff was very helpful. Dr. Melzer answered all of my questions and explained what is going on with my eyes so that I could understand it.
I was not too impressed with the staffs confidence in doing their job. My Husband had an exam a few days before me and never received all the paperwork\ rx he should have. Now we will probably need to go back to pick up all his Prescriptions that he was supposed to get the first time. I would go here in a pinch or a medical emergency, but otherwise we will keep looking for a more permeate eye doctor

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).

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.
