Good with Kids, 5/27/2016

We took our daughter to this office to see the pediatric opthamologist Dr. Salit. We were very pleased with the professional and knowledgeable service. Everyone that we encountered was very nice and... we did not have to wait a long time. It was good.

Amazing, 4/23/2013

Dr. Salit was amazing with my 6 year old daughter. We had some concerns over an eye issue that Dr. Salit was able to diagnose very quickly. She was extremely patient with my daughter (and me quite... frankly). The rest of the staff was super friendly as well. Thank you Thomas Eye Group!

Not so fond of their eye glasses shop

I purchased my eye glasses there about 2 years ago. It took several months for them to get it right. The service was nice however the quality was in question.

NOT "See" how they are failing in Cust. Serv

Worse service EVER! Got there- waited an hour and 15 min before we were called back. Exam- about 2 min. Placed in the fish tank room to wait more…Saw the Doc.. Spoke to him about the wait.. He said, “Well that’s just how it is in the medical world.” I was shocked out of my mind…I don’t think so. I saw all over his face that he was shocked that I even told him. I explained that scheduling should be handled a little better. He huffed and turned his back to me. Then half discussed my 7 year old son’s progress. A simple- I am sorry your 7,9 & 11 year old was asked to sit there w/ nothing to do that long. They can just forget seeing our children EVER again!! It was horrible!! I don’t see how they can’t SEE that’s just unacceptable. The lobby was FULL of UNHAPPY people!!

Bad business practice; ok eye practice

I was charged for a contact fitting a second time, when a follow-up was what the doctor ordered. I disputed this several times with the contacts department, the doctor, the bookkeeping company and the collections company. There was no way I would pay for services not requested, not ordered by the doctor, nor at all required. Seems this was just a way for their contacts profit center to appear better for the woman that ran it...profit share maybe? They reported to the agencies, so, ok it made a few point difference. My excellent credit remained excellent. But as a result of their bad business practices, they lost several patients. (Some they do not even know about!) Go elsewhere.

Short-sighted

The doctors appear competent, but you can't get your prescription without talking to an eyewear sales associate, and unlike last year, when they gladly gave me my pupillary distance measurement so I could order online, a tech recently refused my wife's request, calling such places "dangerous." The corporate office has not returned my reasoned and tempered complaint left in a voice message for the operations manager, which is disappointing. Scare tactics and short-sighted customer service don't engender good will. We'll be taking our eyecare needs elsewhere from now on.

Profit only-Rip off

I got appointment on 03/23/2010 for my son due to the eye infection. I have CIGNA and EyeMed (vision) insurance through my company. My son is only 18-years-old, but he is still a child. He went over there by himself. They have ordered so-called comprehensive eye exam without our authorization. I supposed to have only $15.00-copay, but they charged him on that day$61.00. My son told me they did eye exam. I didn’t argue with them. After few weeks, they sent me additional bill @$225.00. My insurance told me they billed “comprehensive routine eye exam” instead of medical problem. My insurance will cover any exams as long as it is medical reason. After I called the office three times to ask them to bill with the correct code, they refused to do. They insisted they couldn’t change their medical record because it was “comprehensive eye exam”. If my son really needs, he can go to EyeMed network, which I only pay $20.00 copay. Why did my son go to their office to get ripped off? The reason they refused to submit the correct code is “profit”. That’s all I can think right now. If they can get the same amount from insurance as they billed me, why don’t they re-submit? I believe there are restrictions from insurance company. They couldn’t charge as their wishes. I called few optical eye shops in Atlanta such as: Lenscraft. The price range is from $69.00 to $179.00, but I got charged $286.00. I just want to share my story with you. To be aware of Thomas Eye Group-that is a ripoff office

Beware.... profit in mind not your well

We though our son was having a problem with his eyesight. On photos you could tell his left eye wasn’t straight. With that concern in mind we set up an appointment there. They did a series of test and they look at the pictures. The result: there was not a problem. The technician explains us that the problem was just an optical illusion. That his nose bridge was to wide still and therefore his eye shape wasn’t completely shoving. Fool of us, we let that go!. Months later when we continue to see the same pattern, we decide to try a real medical place. Emory Vision Clinic. They found out that our son has amblyopia, he needed to wear a patch for several hours daily and for several months to correct this. Also that he needs to wear glasses. They told us that the earlier the better in solving all his problems. In conclusion, if the quacks over there would have done their job, my son will be better by now. Please don’t sacrifice piece of mind for saving a few bucks.

Don't look anywhere else.

Doctors are wonderful. Their education, experience, scope of practice, services, facilities are top notch. There is an expert for every aspect of care. Office runs well, everyone is very pleasant. Never had a question regarding the quality of care and wouldn't go anywhere else.

Great doctors, bad wait time

I have gone to see Dr. Cobb since I was little, and enjoy my visits. What I do not enjoy is waiting almost an hour before I am even called back. This December I made a morning appointment, hoping to avoid the afternoon wait, and took the only chair left. I waited 55 minutes for the initial exam, then had to stand in the "fishtank room" while my eyes dilated, it was so crowded. The doctor is friendly and professional, but I am considering leaving due to the wait time.

Service, Care, and Experience at its BEST

The staff listens to your problems and puts forth every effort to help you solve them. The office is fortunate to have Pat Jules as its manager.Dr. Cobb is friendly, experienced, and gives a very thorough examination. His assistant Melanie is also a plus. Don't hesitate to go to this group.

Who was that masked lady?

Appt date took forever. They only have normal office hours. My eye insurance wasn't accepted, so I paid the refraction exam fee only. At exam time, an older lady (not the doctor) did the whole refraction exam. This baffles me to this day. I knew the results weren't correct and she was short (rude) with me. I fully expected Dr. Carlisle to do the final legwork to verify her results. The doctor was more concerned with contacts and eye health, so he didn't check her results. I figured the prescription would be tweaked after the first set of trial contacts, so I let it go. It turned out that I couldn't handle the contacts, though. Another doctor at the same location said my tear film wasn't good enough. When I mentioned the previous doc's opinion, he said "Well, that wasn't me"... unprofessional in a group practice, imo. I will say that the contacts fitting lady is awesome. They did refund the cost of my gas perm lenses, too. Not all offices will do that, so that's great. So the prescription details were never worked out. While wearing the trial contacts, I was still squinting my way around. A month later, I went to another practice to have my eye exam re-worked. We found that the prescription was indeed not correct. The sphere's way too low. The new results are similar to my past 10 years of exams, so that's comforting!
