Patient Reviews

Overall Rating:

My grandmother and I came here to get her a new pair of glasses. We were assisted by Julio who was definitely amazing. My grandmother likes to laugh and joke a lot, which she did the entire time that Julio assisted us. He had such a great attitude and sense of humor. ''Put it on, take it off. Put it on, take it off'' is what my grandmother said to him every time he asked her to try on a pair of glasses. (Her n I had just watched Karate Kid the night before, and I guess Jackie Chan telling the Karate Kid to take his jacket off and put it back on got stuck in her head.) LOL nevertheless, she found two beautiful pairs of glasses thanks to Julio. We just picked them up yesterday and Julio had her sit so that he could adjust them to her face. All & all this was a 5-star experience, and I appreciate his time and patience. We will definitely be back here next year, or whenever she is ready! Thanks Joul! :*) -Kaylyn P.

I was going to another doctor but felt like the staff was just not friendly. This made me very unconfortable because I thought that they were not going to help me. I even felt like the doctor was rushing me out the door and didn't even answer my questions to the point that could understand what was being done. This office staff was Awesome and I do reconend it and the doctor, well she was very helpful and made sure that we were taken care of, THANKS!!! AIRLINE TSO My family loves you all and we are her to stay. -Miguel G.
