Loved this experience. As a kid, I always dreaded going to the eye doc (The phrase "read this line of letters" gives me PTSD!) But Dr Wendy makes you feel really comfortable. She is thorough with her exam, gives sound advice, and keeps you in check to make sure you are taking care of your eyes! She reminds me of a mom (in a good way). The rest of the staff are also amazing! Friendly, sincere, not there to sell you additional services. The rates are great and they give you rebates to mail in when available. I think I found my new permanent go-to place!

I recently changed insurance and had to find a new eye doctor and had a great experience at this location! I was seen right away, and Dr. Josephs was very friendly and professional. I felt very comfortable the whole time. The technician in the front was also very helpful in helping me pick out my glasses. She provided solid advice without making me feel like she was pressuring me into choosing the more expensive options, or judging me for looking at the more affordable ones, which I've definitely felt at other eye doctors. I'm very pleased and will be coming back next year for my annual visit!

Great appointment. Very quick and to the point but was given plenty of opportunities to ask questions. It didn't feel rushed and the exam was thorough. The technician in the front was patient and great with helping me select frames. Would definitely recommend this place.

The overall experience was positive & I would recommend them. The staff was great & professional, even when they were busy helping someone else they still acknowledged me which is always a good sign of quality customer service. I've been to many different places & this is not the case always Hands down the fastest appointment for eye exam & contact purchase ever. Dr Josephs was awesome and made the whole exam experience quick & anxiety free with her demeanor! I was in & out in no time, wow

Not only was Wendy Josephs terrific to work with, her staff was as nice, as helpful and reassuring. Wendy approached my care with my lifestyle in mind and actually proposed a change that will likely impact my vision and use of contacts and glasses with the best results. I have never had such a positive experience with an OD and will return regularly for all my exams and eye care needs.

This was the worst experience I've ever had at the eye doctor. She was rude, condescending, and apparently everything I've been doing for the past 18 years of my life with contacts is wrong. I will never see her again and I highly suggest you never see her either.

I booked for Dr. Joseph's but when I reached there got to know that some other junior doc would be attending. That was not expected. They should have atleast informed in advance if there was any change.

I really enjoyed visiting Wendy! Very quick and informative visit - told me to use different drops for my eyes based on the contacts and they helped a lot better than the old brand. Great for an annual exam.

She's just not a nice person. She is rude, and treats her customers as if they are bothering her when they show up for an appointment. Obviously does not enjoy her job. She wouldn't even allow me to choose the kind of contact lenses I wanted! She told the clerk what lenses to order me, and specifically told him not to order any of the lenses that my insurance covered! Go somewhere else unless you enjoy being treated with contempt.

This was a great experience. Walked in exactly at the time of my appointment and was helped right away. The man who handles incoming patients is warm, friendly, and very helpful. Wendy herself is funny and nice, and the appointment was extremely efficient. At the end they gave me my prescription without too much pressure to buy contacts or glasses through the shop, which I really appreciated.
