I arruved ten minutes early. I was told the doctor would see me soon. After 40 minutes, the doctor hadn’t bothered to show up to the office. I was told he was stuck in traffic but my friend, who drove from Miami to Fort Lauderdale, arrived to meet me without “traffic”. Surely a doctor who had a patient scheduled would plan ahead and arrive within reason. I managed to. Very frustrating and disappointing in a professional.

Visit was good; Dr Atlas was very nice, took his time with the exam. What I did not like is that performed a procedure not covered by my insurance and did not inform me upfront.

It was a great visit, Dr. Atlas was willing to see me when no one else would, right after Hurricane Irma. I was the only patient there. It felt like something was in my eye and I was very uncomfortable since the day before the hurricane hit. I got checked out, prescribed eye drops that worked very quickly, and have a follow up next week.

This was the best eye doctor I have ever been to. The employees were great people! I got a lot of help picking out frames and finding what I wanted! The optometrist was awesome. He had a great sense of humor and it's evident he knows his field well. I will definitely re-visit & recommend to anyone.

Went 10 minutes early and they took me right away. Friendly staff. Overall pricing was higher than my previous doctor in Orlando but that seems to be everywhere in south florida. Doctor is very laid back and well mannered. Explained everything in detail and seemed genuinely concerned.

I have only good things to say about my visit to Downtown Opticians. I was a client of the previous Optician at this location. But I have to say, I like Dr. Atlas and his staff much better. The girls in the office were friendly and cheerful and kept us moving. The doctor was easy to talk to and was also a good listener. I never felt rushed and the doctor spent a sufficient amount of time conducting a thorough eye examination; an all-around good experience.

I was very pleased with the Doctor, nice and professional. He has a machine that takes pictures of your eyes so no drops necessary to dilate your eyes. Melanie is super nice and was very helpful in assisting with frame choices, which can be very overwhelming . Overall, 5 Stars in my rating
