I asked to go over my billing and the res headed lady in the eye glass area named stacey had an attitude with me and talked about me to her co worker who laughed at me as well. By far the worse customer service I've experienced here.

Dr. Atlas and his staff are a pleasure to work with! The lady who assisted me through my check in and eye pictures was SO incredibly nice and very thoughtful. She was relatable and easy to speak to. Dr. Atlas himself is so knowledgable about his field and explains everything that's going on. He took his time with me, got to know me, and did a very thorough exam. I'd highly recommend him!

I have been going to Dr. Atlas for about 5 years now and he is great! He takes the time to talk with you doesn't rush you out the door like most doctors. He has great technology to look at your eye more in depth. His staff is very customer service oriented Stacy and Melanie are great!

I was nervous about going to the eye doctor...weird, I know. Starting with his office staff, I was immediately put to ease. They were knowledgeable, fun, and efficient. Dr. Atlas was an absolute pleasure. He has an excellent "bedside manner" and really seemed to want to get to know all about me and why I was there. I felt that the exam was thorough (although I have nothing to base it on - lol), and my time was truly valued. All in all, I highly recommend this office for your eye care needs.

Was not happy with the push to get eyeglasses that did not serve me. I complained and expressed my dissatisfaction but still, the office would not reimburse me for their fast-talking sales rep that sold me unnecessary eyeglass options and a pair of glasses that were way over my insurance limits.

Dr. Atlas and his staff are a pleasure to meet. His experience and knowledge in this field is evident from the moment he starts to conduct his exam. He’s considerate, he listens, he expresses compassion, and made me feel like he genuinely cares about my overall well-being. His staff is also very friendly, helpful, and approachable. No up-selling or pushy tactics here. I was immediately acknowledged, greeted and assisted as soon as I walked in. Very individualized attention. I was in and out of my appointment in an hour, even as a first-time patient. If you’re looking for a new eye doc, he’s the one.

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.
