Not good experience at all with his employees specially optics store Pikesville, MD and Columbia, MD. My wife's glasses screwed up and was not fixed even though paid lot of money for lenses and frame. Very disappointing attitude by Optical Store's employees and unprofessional. Better go some where else to get your glasses crafted. Do not spend your money to buy frame and glasses from there. Period.
in Columbia MD |
Had a eye infection made a appointment the same day. Dr. Susel was professional, and found the problem quickly and spent adequate time to review the meds and procedures. Feeling much better 3 days later. staff was professional and friendly.
