OUTSTANDING!! Dr. Sylvie was extremely personable from the moment she began my exam, and explained every test she was performing in a way that the common person could understand. I wear contacts/glasses and wanted to get both. She was kind enoughto send me home with a variety of contact samples to see which were the most comfortable for me, not a single other O.D. in 22 yrs has done that for me, she also took the time to fit me in a set of frames that complimented my facial structure. Once I choose the contacts I wanted they ordered me an annual supply that was ready for pick up ahead of the original date, and they also had my glasses ready at the same time. I even decided to get some sunglasses when picking up my contacts/glasses as she has many to designer frames to choose from. Dr. Sylvie was available and willing to help me pick the perfect pair of sunglasses. I must also mention that Rosa & Abby (front office staff) were extremely helpful and friendly too. I can't say enough great things about Dr. Sylvie and her staff, they are simply amazing and have a patient for life in me. I've seen many Optometrist, and she by far without a doubt is the BEST!!

After having to deal with headaches and vision problems for 2 weeks thinking I'm adjusting to the new prescription, they denied rechecking my prescription. Before you go there you should know that they only give you 30 days for reexaminationeven in my case where I decided to get my glasses at Target who took about 4 weeks to send me the glasses, they will still deny reexamination.

Very quick and easy going visit. Dr. Sylvie was friendly, knowledgeable, a concise with my exam. She also helped me through the process of picking out new frames and lenses which I have never had an optometrist do previously. A verythorough process to ensure that I got exactly what I needed. Dr. Sylvie very knowledgeable about their frame offerings and helped me pinpoint the right product for me. My only complaint about the process is that my glasses took longer than expected to be prepared (about two weeks). Other than that, a very positive experience.

Dr. Sylvie was amazing. She really takes the time to go over everything with you so that you completely understand. She is amazing. She helped my keratoconjunctivitis sicca (say that 3 times real fast) and found the right prescription to helpme see. Her beauty inside matches her beauty outside. If I lived out of state I would move back just to see her again!

Dr. El Hage and her staff were wonderful! Very short wait and very thorough during he exam. Dr. El Hage spent a great deal of time answering my questions and also stuck around with me for at least 45 minutes afterthe exam while I tried on just about every pair of eye glasses in the store (twice). She is professional, personable, and clearly very well trained. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again and will be recommending her office to all of my friends.

I made an appointment after putting off going to the optometrist for way too long. Admittedly, I experience a bit of anxiety any time I have to go to a new physician in any field. Rosa, at the front desk, washelpful and friendly; Dr. Sylvie was prompt and attentive. These days going to the optometrist can sometimes feel like walking on to a used car lot. I've had experiences in the past where doctors would pressure me to pay extra for ocular mapping, or trendy upgrades to my lenses, but Dr. Sylvie was a dream. She explained everything thoroughly, answered all of my questions about my particular condition, and took her time when it came to getting my prescription just right. Once we had landed on the proper prescription she lead me through all of my options for glasses and contacts, and took the time to breakdown the pricing which allowed me to compare it to other vendors (1-800 contacts, etc.). It was a great experience, and I won't have to worry about any optometry related anxiety in the future. Plus, I think have a crush. haha

I was a new patient. I don't mind filling forms and the front desk was very welcoming. Dr. Sylvie was very kind, warm and did all of the exam herself. Other practices I've been to have associates do those tasks butI appreciated her being there to see everything. She explained the processes and pros and cons and left the decision up to me, which I liked. Will be back!

She was great. Really great! I usually go to an Opthamologist for my exams and glasses. I made an appt to see Dr. Sylvie El Hage because my glasses broke and I could not get in to see the Ophthalmologist anytimesoon. Well, I don't think I'll be going back to the Opthamologist again. The examination by Dr. Sylvie El Hage was by far the most comprehensive examination I have ever had and her bedside manner could not be better. She was very thorough and did not rush me or the tests. She clearly loves what she does. I cannot recommend her enough.
