Was seen by Dr. Haley Newstrom who was excellent. I left a around 10:20 am and my pupils are still dilated. Hope it goes away soon.

Dr. Adler is wonderful but I was completely misinformed about the cost of my contact lenses. I was told a 180 day supply would cost X but when I received my order I had a 90 day because the cost was for two boxes, not two orders - so literally double the cost as to what I was told. And we spoke at great length about this. Though I liked Dr. Adler, I will never return here.

I've been a patient of Dr. Atlas for over 10 years. He's the absolute best. Today I saw Dr. Haley Newstrom for the first time and I highly recommend her as well. Furthermore, when seeing any physician most people know liking your physician is not the only fact when choosing a doctor; you must also like the office staff. That being said, the office staff at Atlas Eye Center is beyond amazing. Stacy in particular is a pro at navigating insurance, finding the right frames and overall customer service. Understanding insurance benefits can be very confusing. Stacy will patiently show all options to ensure you are receiving the most from your healthcare benefits. I highly recommend Atlas Eye Center!!

I felt incredibly pressured the whole time and am fighting back tears because of the experience. Now I am stuck with a pair of glasses that do not fit well and look horribly on me because I was backed into a corner to buy a pair of expensive designer glasses that are only 40% of the price online. They also kept trying to convince me to switch to contacts, which according to the insurance plan would mean higher payouts for them. I also had to wait over a half hour even though there were no other patients and I had arrived a few minutes ahead of my appointment. I am all for supporting local businesses and paying a little extra, but not if I am to be treated like this again.

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.
