I appreciate very much the time and effort Dr. Farra puts into my visits. I have PTSD from terrible experiences with eye doctors who can't explain what is going on in words I understand. I am so glad to have foundTaline and her team and I do truly feel at home when I am there. She makes sure all of my questions are answered and I don't feel like I am ever rushed out before our mutual goals are met. I am coming back around to eye visits and it is all thanks to this office.

She takes her time to listen to your concerns and goes through your options with you. I really appreciate that because a lot of doctors just want to get you in and out. Her front assistants are also a huge helpand really made me feel great about my choice in new glasses. Highly recommend !

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 :)
