Fantastic, 10/16/2013

Dr. Spence is very thorough in taking care of my eyes heath. And he explains as he goes along. All of the staff I encountered were polite and professional. I strongly recommend this eye center.


Overpriced, 4/17/2013

The eye doctor, Payne, didn't do a real contact lens fitting in the eye exam. He just asked me what my current prescription was. I told him what I thought it was, but I said that I wasn't sure, and... he just wrote it down anyway. Then he gave me a trial pair of lenses. Since i could read the 20/20 line on the chart, l guess his job was done. My insurance only either covers the cost of glasses OR a contact lens fitting, but I wanted both, so I had to pay the full price for this "service" for the doctor to write down on a piece of paper what I told him I THOUGHT my prescription was. On top of that, I was later billed for a remaining balance that my insurance refused to pay. I was really confused, because I made sure up front that they accepted my insurance. What they failed to mention is that their prices are double what is covered by my insurance. So I ended up having to pay the other half out of pocket. I never would have gone to this place if I knew they were charging twice the standard rate for a routine eye exam.

The best Dr. I've seen in the US

Dr.Brown is out of this world! She is GREAT with kids, her personality alone is #1. I recommend her to everyone. She took almost an hour to examine my daughter...

The very best!

Are you kidding me! How can I have been wearing contacts since I was 19,(a long time) and never have gotten this type of professionalism and service. I have sent my whole family there and will continue to send referrals. Awesome!

Great eye care

Dr. Payne was my eye doctor growing up. My family followed them wherever they moved as their business was growing. Very friendly with reasonable prices.

Excellent Doctors, Friendly Staff

Having had many serious issues with my eyes in the past, having an excellent eye doctor is critical for me. And I found that here. Dr. Payne and his wife and Dr. Glenda Brown are all fantastic and have taken great care of me the past few years. They are highly proficient at what they do and I have tremendous confidence in their abilities. The office is VERY nice and the staff is friendly. Note: The same doctors also operate out of Alpharetta Eye Care in Alpharetta.
