Dr. Josephs was amazing! I’ve been dealing with an eye issue for months and seen other doctors who stunk! She made me feel comfortable and encouraged and helped me put a great plan together to get my eye healed. Would recommend her to anyone!

This was my first visit to Dr. Josephs' office. From the person who greeted me - to Dr. Josephs - to the woman who helped measure my glasses, the experience was wonderful. Everyone very receptive and super friendly. I will be recommending friends to switch to this practice.

I've been seeing Dr. Josephs for years - she is a great optometrist. She is prompt, very thorough, and always informing me on best practices and making sure my contacts are using the most up to date technology as is comfortable for my astigmatism.

I had read other reviews about Dr. Josephs being kind of lecturey in their appointments and while I understand why they said this, I think it's because she really cares about proper eye health and comes from the best place. She and I discussed how bad generic (ie. Hubble contacts) eye care is and that is shouldn't be treated like an over the counter medicine. She was extremely knowledgeable and professional in helping me to understand the best possible eye care I should have. My appointment was easy and relatively quick and I feel much better about my eyes and use of specific contacts now!

I came in a few minutes early which caused a few minutes of a wait, but clearly caused by me and i was still called in a few minutes before the official start of my appointment. I was deeply worried about my eye sight due to a (as it thurned out) smaller issue. Dr Josephs managed to take all my worry and walked me through the steps of examination slowly and with great confidence. Also, unlike other physicians she really took her time and i did not feel rushed. Would reccommend her to anyone who nees a physician and would come back myself wirh any issues.

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.

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
