I've been going to see Dr. Carr for the last 10 years now and we've always enjoyed seeing her; she is very friendly and "in-tune" with her patients and their needs. She also doens't push any specific products and I always feel like she's suggesting the right product for me. The only part that I did not look forward to when we went in the past, was to deal with the receptionists. They've cycled through what seems like endless new faces, all rude. But now...now there is a new set of receptionists up front now that are great! They, too, are very friendly and welcoming. I would highly reccomend.
I take my entire family to Dr. Carr. She has a good "chairside" manner with kids and explains things- like changes to vision, the whys, etc. She IS very efficient- which could be perceived as "rude" if you are expecting a chatty cathy. But if you are looking for someone who is efficient, effective, and keeps an office running on-time (when was the last time you got in to see your doc atthe time you were scheduled???), Dr. Carr is your doc. I would certainly recommend her to anyone. Not only am I giving her two thumbs way up, I can actually SEE that I am doing it!
A friend told me Dr. Medina provided him with comfortable contact lenses when others could not help him. When I first visited Dr. Medina, he provided me with more comfortable lenses after another optometrist would not change mine. I then referred someone else, who was pleased with the Lasik Dr. Medina recommended. Dr. Medina takes time to thoroughly examine his patients' eyes, asking about glaucoma, diabetes, dry eye and other issues prior to recommending lenses.
