Dr. Koenig is a professional and so are his staff. His staff seem to be working in a happy environment, and that's always good for business. I have all of my questions answered and will definitely see him in a yearagain. So, instead of going to places like Lenscrafters who pushes for additional unnecessary checkups and sales after after dragging the process out, see him next time!

I wanted to like Dr. Koenig out of convenience (I just moved closeby), but my experience did not align with the patient reviews and credentials that I researched beforehand. He unfortunately wrote the prescription to another person (a mistakethat I easily could have corrected if I hadn't been dialated) and the prescription he wrote was far different from my long history of prescriptions (my eyeglass shop pointed this out to me when I dropped off my prescription). Perhaps as a function of his age, he does not use email so it has been difficult and frustrating to connect with him via phone between his work schedule and mine to correct the prescription and the name on the prescription. Had his bedside manner been better than satisfactory, I would have overlooked these issues and continued to see him.

I thought Dr. Koenig was very professional as was his staff. Although, in the past at every eye doctor I've seen, I've always left with a sample of contact lenses reflecting the new prescription. That was not the case today -so I am hoping the new lenses I just ordered, with a new prescription, are exactly what my eyes need.

Great doctor. Came in for a regular checkup for contacts but he took the time to do some additional analysis due to some abnormality he saw in my eyes. In the end, it turned out to be a non-issue but reallyappreciated that he took the time to go beyond the requirement.
