I went in to get a new pair of sunglasses with my prescription I had received in August. The office staff is always super friendly and I was seen immediately. The guy helping me pick out my glasses was honest withhelping me find frames that would best fit my face. Since I have a narrow bridge, I needed something with nose pieces so the glasses wouldn't sit on my cheeks. I found a pair of frames I loved that unfortunately didn't have nose pieces, and he was able to help me get them customized to include nose pieces! I was soooo happy to find out that I could have the frames I loved and to know that they would fit my face the way my regular glasses do. I would recommend Dr. McMullen and his staff to anyone, anytime.

I filled out my paperwork online, so when I arrived for my appointment I didn’t need to do anything other than sign a release form. They answered some insurance questions that I had. I waited maybe 2 minutes? Then we beganmy exam. First, the machines you look into with the puff of air, a retinal scanner, a machine that measured my current prescription in my glasses, etc. It only took a few minutes to complete. Then I went into the exam room and the Dr came in immediately and began that portion of the exam. He explained that instead of dilating my eyes, they do the retinal scan (?) which shows a bigger picture and is more effective. He showed me my scans and explained what we were looking at and what they showed. It was really interesting and informative. Then we did the contact lens portion and he gave me some samples to try. It was quick, but it didn’t feel rushed. It was one of the easiest and efficient eye exams I can remember and I’ve worn glasses for 35+ years. I definitely recommend this Dr.

Dr. McMullen is very nice and genuine. He seemed to have read my check in forms prior to my arrival so we had a real conversation and it made the visit very personable. He provides a good amount of detail andexplanation as to why he does what he does and gives you an outline of a plan for the future as his patient. The office staff explained everything before they did it and they were very nice and efficient. They have a nice selection of frames and focus more on the medical aspect of optometry, so their selection is a nice combination of practical and stylish.
