Went to this clinic for a regular eye exam. Doctor acted like I asked an offensive question when I asked him about my eye sight and explained absolutely nothing. He shoved my chart in my hands & told me pay. Even though I have a copay w/ my insurance, they still charged me for services up front under the premise that they will "reimburse later". They also tried to charge for services I didn't have done which came out to 7x the amount of my copay. Very unprofessional and not worth the money.
