Patient Testimonials

"I love that they are always more than happy to answer my questions, and actually welcome questions. I've felt awkward at some other places I've visited when I've tried to ask a lot of questions, but not here. They go out of their way to make everyone feel equally respected and cared for. I've seen client favoritism at some of the other places I've been, and I really appreciate the extra effort they make to avoid that here. Their exams are so much better than other optometrists I've been too. The exam was quick and pain-free. They listened closely to everything I was telling them, and showed a lot of attention to detail. I've never had to worry about them forgetting something or not reading my information correctly, which I've encountered at other places."

"I made an appointment as a new patient with Dr McManus after experiencing problems with my vision and a very poor experience with my previous provider. Dr McManus was able to get me in for an appointment within 48 hours. My appointment was late in the day but that did not keep him from completing a very thorough examination. Over the course of my first visit along with 3 additional appointments and fittings, he made several suggestions for the care of my eyes and adjustments to my current prescription. The most significant change was a large reduction in power. I've now been fitted with new properly fitting contact lenses and glasses with an accurate prescription. You may think that 3 or 4 visits sound excessive. However, my previous optician had me wearing lenses that were so inaccurate that it took several weeks for my eyes to settle down enough to be accurately assessed.

I could not be happier with the care and service Dr McManus and his team provided. I am telling everyone I know about my fantastic experience. If you are looking for a professional, truly caring optometrist who is not just out to sell you the latest fad or process you through some assembly line, I would highly recommend that you make an appointment. It's refreshing to know that you can still find a great doctor with years of experience right around the corner."

"They made sure every single question I had was answered, and are always available if I think of any more questions I want answered. Their staff is the most friendly, welcoming staff I've ever dealt with. They are so warm and professional, and make the whole experience that much better. I was so impressed with the progress I was able to make after visiting them."
