Called at 9AM to make appt. as I thought I had a retinal detachment. Dr. Golden calmed my fears and assured me that I did not have a retina detachment. He explained to my satisfaction what was going on with my eye. Left his office assured and relieved.

Dr. Golden has been our family optomatrist for several years now, and we are looking forward to have him care for our precious eyesight as we age. With regard to age and ageing, our sight, and being proactive with him is most important and it's comforting to know you selected the right eye care professional. We think he's a great guy, and would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends.

Dr. Golden and everyone in the office are professional and the office is clean. Although I don't wear prescription eyeglasses or contacts (I've had Lasik) the selection and amount of eyeglass frames is amazing. I highly recommend this practice.

Dr. Golden is great and probably sets the tone for the office. I've never had a bad experience at Golden Vision and I've been a patient for a long time.

I have seen Dr. Golden for several years for my vision needs. The office staff are always professional and friendly and the Dr. himself is helpful in answering questions, explaining what is happening with my vision and the concerns he has uncovered, and is always professional. The wait time has never been more than 10 or so minutes. I always arrive early and have often been seen prior to my actual appointment time. There is an excellent selection of frames and my glasses arrive quickly.

The design of the office and interior is clean, professional, and welcoming. The women who work there are generally kind and helpful. However, the doctor is somewhat curt and condescending towards patients, seemingly more interested in getting them in and out the door than hearing their questions or concerns about eye health.
