I highly recommend Dr. Tarakji! He is very knowledgeable and considerate, and his staff is very friendly and helpful. The waiting room has an adjacent play area for kids, and the kids all seem to enjoy it a lot. Previously I went to an optometrist who seemed more interested in selling me expensive products, but Dr. Tarakji seems focused on providing excellent care and service.

Be prepared to wait 1.5 hours in his waiting room. It is clear he stacks his schedule to the inconvenience of his patients, many with small children. There is a sign that states if your name is not called in 15 minutes to please return to the front desk, I think it must be there to prank the cantankerous receptionist.
