I was there for an eye infection and needed a doctor to write out a prescription. For some reason, she thought I was there for contacts. No idea why she didn't review the paperwork I had to fill out prior to seeing me and didn't think to ask about my red, irritated eye right away.

My eye exam with Dr. Josephs was quite pleasant! Her personality is really fun and she made me feel very welcome. She explained everything very well and answered my many questions. The receptionist was also incredibly friendly and helpful with a bit of confusion I had about my insurance. I'm grateful the experience was much more positive than I had expected!

Efficient, accurate, and professional. I find making conversation with Dr. Josephs to be a little awkward, but I have nothing bad to say about her ability as an optometrist. It's a small office and I've never had any trouble ordering contacts or with my appointments.

Really great visit with Dr. Josephs. My only problem was finding her office. I went to the address listed but was told it was in another location which happened to be an eyeglass shop called Jena Optical. It wasn't hard to locate but that bit of information is listed no where on zoc doc or my appointment reminder.

I showed up 20 mins earlier than scheduled and was shown to the doctor right away. Fast & thorough exam and a great review of all selections of frames. Cost was explained to me clearly and I didn't feel like I was being pushed into anything at all. Great experience overall.

Oddly confrontational and unwilling to explain things. I went in thinking I was going to buy both glasses and contacts after the appointment and left without buying either. I wanted to leave ASAP.

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!

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.
