Patient Testimonials

Dr Anderson is always very kind, attentive and professional. Very detailed examination. When choosing frames/glasses lots of variety with brand name, style and sizes for all. Luke was an excellent optician to assist with selecting and ordering my new frames. He was even able to get my pair from last year that were broken covered under warranty. Great place for excellent care and customer service! Highly recommend!

Jill H.

Dr. Priyanka Patel was amazing! She worked magic on me and corrected my left eye to 20/30 vision when I have never been able to read out of it (54 years)! Here manner is amazing and just a very likeable person all around. She cares about her patients and makes extraordinary efforts to make sure your prescriptions are exactly right! Don’t look any further for an Optometrist. Trust me, she is the one for you!

First time with this office, great experience all around! Easy online portal to schedule an appointment, friendly reminder texts and emails, and a library of frames to look at online! Saw Dr. Erika Cleland for an eye exam and new lenses and frames. Everyone from the front desk to the techs, and the Dr. were wonderful and made me feel very comfortable.

Great optometrist office! Have been around because I’ve had issues getting fitted for contact lenses but here they knew just what to give me. Even better i was able to try a set before i made my purchase! Will recommend them to all my friends. The staff was great!


Dr. Rodriguez and his staff are so welcoming and kind. My son went in for an eye exam, having trouble seeing in school. They took care of him like he’s been a patient there for years. Dr. Rodriguez was so patient and answered all my questions which, means a lot to a mom! Would definitely recommend them, thank you guys so much! 🙂
