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.

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 backto 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

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 myMother 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.
