I do not enjoy going to doctors period; however, Dr. Sylvie El Hage made it so much fun! I told her my issues with dry eyes and how my eye sight has become increasingly worse and she really listened. She walked me through the entire process and then gave me new daily contact lenses to help with the dryness. My appointment was yesterday and just by wearing these new lenses I feel a HUGE difference. They also have a great selection of glasses and sunglasses to choose from. I finally found a pair of red glasses that I am obsessed with. I can’t wait to pick them up!! The staff is friendly and the clinic is clean and cute. Overall a great experience and I highly recommend!

Really nice staff but felt like the optometrist was constantly trying to upsell. When I said I didn't want to look at glasses there, I had to wait 15-20 minutes extra to be seen while the doctor saw someone else. Because I chose the dilation method for retinas instead of some fancy machine, her last words were a sarcastic "best of luck having dilated eyes at work!" I get that she wears a fancy Apple watch and seemingly lives an extravagant lifestyle, but don't think that justifies taking it out on patients who don't value those things.

Dr. Hage was awesome!!! She was friendly and knowledgeable! After the exam, she brought me to check out glasses and I actually got a pair I didn’t like on the shelf but she picked it up so I tried it anyway. They looked great! I will definitely make her my primary OD!

Dr. Hage was very friendly, knowledgeable, informative, and I had an overall great experience. The staff was friendly and helpful as well. The wait time was pretty good. Filled out new patient paperwork within a few minutes, waited a few more, went back to the exam room and doctor came within a few minutes of that. My only feedback is that 2 of their new patient forms is redundant with the same questions on each form.

The only wait time for my appointment was filling out paperwork which didn’t take very long. Dr. El Hage is very nice and did not frown upon me for not seeing an eye doctor for over 7 years ahaha. She got me all set up for a nice pair of glasses. I highly recommend her.

I came in for my eye exam and for my 7 year old daughter's exam, and she kept the appointment bright, cheery, and fun for us both. Additionally, the exam didn't feel rushed and seemed very thorough. She even made picking out glasses fun. Highly recommend her to anyone!

She also took time to answer all my questions, address concerns, and ensure the perfect fit for both contacts and glasses. I definitely recommend and I will return.

Dr. Sylvie was really nice and knowledgeable. I hadn't worn glasses in a long time because they had previously given me headaches. She took the time to not only correct my vision but make sure I would be comfortable. For example, I wore the trial frames for about 10 minutes to see if a headache developed. She was also a great style adviser to select frames! :)

Absolutely LOVED my visit to Dr. Hage's office. The receptionist were so kind when I walked in. Easy to fill out forms for being a first patient. Also, Dr. Hage takes time to answer all of your questions, and she has such a kind-hearted demeanor. I've already told my friends if they need an eye doctor to go see her. Would recommend to anyone.

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 enough to 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!!
