This was my first appointment in 2 years. I was pleased with the wait time. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The exam was quick and to the point. No oversell or undersell. Provided options for what I needed glasses for.I'm very pleased with the visit. I was looking to get closer to home / work for future appointments and this worked out great. Thanks Carol B

The office felt a bit pushy. When I was checking in, right away they were trying to upsell me to pay for a different treatment for dialation that cost more. I got the same speech when I was with the doctoras well. Happened a couple times, which made me feel uncomfortable. Made me question if they had my true best interest at heart, and not their business.

Dr. Farra was very sweet and took her time examining my eyes. I had gone in for a medical concern (eye irritation), not a fitting. When figuring out the best way to treat my issue, she was also very mindful ofwhat would be affordable to me which I appreciate. It was also my first time at the office and I felt extremely welcome. The staff was polite, place clean, and doctor helpful. Glad I found them :)

The reason the Doctor was late to see me, is that she was attending to a special needs patient. Her interaction with this young man was amazing. No complaints here on the wait. She could not have been more apologetic about it, and there was really no need.

I enjoyed my apt with Dr. Farra and the staff at Wink. Everyone was knowledgeable in their departments and explained everything to me that I needed to know. The optician took his time with me while I was picking out glasses,and the Tech/Secretary was wonderful as well. Dr. Farra took her time during my appointment and made sure that I had no questions or concerns. I am recommending them to my family and friends.
