During their over 40 years in business, they have perfected what visiting an eye doctor is all about – they really should package it up and sell their business model to all new optometrist graduates. First, call the main number and make an appointment – the office staff is nice and friendly. As most good eye doctors, expect to not get an appointment that week but it will be worth the wait. Dr. Levy is skilled in glasses, contacts and other eye-related things. Even though he is an eye doctor, he’s not afraid to push laser vision (Lasik) correction performed by someone else if he thinks that it could be beneficial for the patient.
They have state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment (glaucoma testing, peripheral vision and retinal checking that also predicts the strength of your lenses) Dr. Levy is very personable as is his office staff. Appointments last about 45-90 minutes but you’re moved between different rooms and devices so it doesn’t seem so long.
It’s a family practice so I recommend bringing your children there and stopping before or after your appointment for lunch or dinner at the AB&G (Allendale Bar and Grill) across the street from the office for a burger, and some popcorn while you wait for your food order.
They (Dr. Levy, not AB&G) 🙂 take VSP insurance.
