Care Philosophy

I believe medicine is a partnership between doctor and patient. Much of my job is educating people as to what their condition is, and their treatment options. The ultimate decision on what treatment is done is up to the patient. I enjoy cataract surgery, tear duct surgery, and especially pediatric surgery - I find it very rewarding to straighten eyes on kids.

The technician was HORRIBLE!! Gave me glasses i paid 400.00 for and can not wear she blamed me for choosing the wrong kind of frames, 2nd visit told me i needed Asian fit frames, 3rd visit said my ears were not even, 4 visit a new pair of glasses and told me i need to get use to them because I have never worn glasses that were designed just for me. It's been a yr I wear my old glasses and will never go here again. Watch out for her get your rx and run to another place to order them. Dr. great

Never every will I go back. Officeven manager treated me like I knew nothing, and the address helping me was put down in front of me while she was doing an excellent job getting measurements and selecting glasses. She took over and the look of humiliation on that girls face reallt upset me. I was then told was a liar. 2 weeks later I got my glasses and lo and behold she had screwed them up and have yet to make it right. She has been rude and plain ignorant to her staff.

Absolute awful experience. The staff and manager here are horrible. They told me working with the insurance was my own responsibility after telling me the would do it initially. I will not be going back to Dr Affleck.

Dr Affleck, himself was good. However, his staff was not. After waiting nearly an entire hour in the exam room at our first appointment I was very frustrated. On top of that, they charged me $45 when I called to change a future appointment. The lack of consideration for my time, followed by a fine for "not recognizing the value of their time" was enough for me! I won't be returning.

My son needed glasses badly and vision therapy both of which were prescribed by another eye doctor after Dr. Affleck told me his eyes were not getting worse so we could just keep watching it.....he was completely wrong and now my son still struggles because he was seeing with out both eyes for almost two years without proper treatment.

I love Dr. Affleck, he has managed my condition for year so well. His office staff is kind and skilled. I can't believe how detailed they are in the optical department. Dr. Affleck personally takes you to a staff member in the optical and explains your needs, then the staff carefully select frames that are comfortable and measure your frames in all kinds of ways to make sure your vision is great. I work in the healthcare system and found those that complain the most what something for nothing.

I don't know what Luke H is talking about! My wife and I both did the RESTOR lenses, we see 20/20 both near and far. Dr. Affleck did my surgery last spring and my wife last fall. Dr. Affleck did the dropless cataract surgery that saves us each about $400. We received paperwork at our pre-operative exam that explained the cost of everything. Maybe Luke does not no how to read. I know I would pay anything for good vision and that is what my wife and I got. Dr. Affleck, thank you!

Dr. Affleck is amazing. He explained my problem like no one else. Then together we came up with a treatment plan that work! You could tell his staff knew what they were doing and liked each other. I had no surprise charges because I used a form they provided to call my insurance and ask the right questions. Affleck, MD Eye Care is the best in this area!

I had to pay for lenses out of pocket for cataract surgery. I knew and was ready for that. The price I was quoted and PAID ahead of time changed afterward and I was charged more even though part of my bill THAT THEY SENT me showed the original price I was quoted. I'm pissed. It was a $400 dollar mistake. When I called them about it they were quite rude, it took them weeks to figure it out, and the resulting answe was that Dr Affleck is sure he told me the higher price and I was wrong. Liars!

The main office person is rude and impersonal. The doctor is incompetent and thinks his service is golden.
