From Business: Dr. Vincent Facchiano & Associates is the local eye doctor to see for all of your eye care needs in Rockford, IL. As your local Rockford optometrist, Dr. Vincent …
Arrived at 12:45 PM and was greeted by Dr. Shumaker's assistant. She performed a few standard tests and then escorted me to Dr. Shumaker's examination office. Dr. Shumaker was very thorough and took the time to explain each and every test and every part of the examination. He was very professional and friendly at all times. He informed me of possibly changes that may occur in my eyes as I age. He also checked not only my prescription for contact lenses, but also my eyeglasses that are bifocals. Fortunately my prescription remained the same so my contacts and eyeglasses remained the same. He also informed me that my right eyelid is becoming droopy and said it is still OK, but down the road there is a possibility that I may need minor surgery to correct the condition. Upon completion he gathered all the paperwork and printed out a copy of my current prescription for future reference. I can honestly say that over the 50 years of eyeglass and contact examinations that this was the best by far.Buff Blackler
I went to get my eyes examined at Northern Illinois Optical because it was the cheapest in Rockford (I guess you get what you pay for!). When I arrived at the appointment Dr. Minarik was the RUDEST PERSON I HAVE EVER MET! I told him I only wanted an eye exam and I was not ordering contacts from him. He proceeded to give me a lecture about the mortgage being paid off before I was born, so I should purchase the contacts from him (what does this have to do with my eye exam?). I currently have Acuvue 2 extended wear contacts. He proceeded to give me another lecture about being sued by a former patient because they wore the contacts past the intended period of use and I need to remove my contacts nightly (guess he knows more than the manufacturer of the lenses). The day after my eye exam I found out his prices were better than where I previously ordered my lenses (1-800-CONTACTS). I called to place an order of colored contacts and a free trial of AIR OPTIX Night&Day. After agreeing to sign a contract on how my lenses would be worn, I successfully placed the order with the receptionist. 5 minutes after placing the order Dr. Minarik called me back refusing to fill either of my orders He made a comment that I wouldn't change my lenses often enough. How does he know this when my last 3 contact orders were through 1-800-CONTACTS? I have NEVER ordered a pair of lenses from him in the past. Let me get this straight.. First the doctor insists that I order contact lenses from him. I place the order through his office and my order is denied? What kind of a business is being ran here? This was the worst experience I have ever had at an Optometrist in my life! I have been wearing glasses and contacts for over 30 years. P.S. Handicapped parking spaces are for handicapped people. Not for Dr. Minarik!
I had a great experience at my first visit here. The Dr and staff were all so helpful and friendly. It was recommended by a lot of my friends and I have already recommended to a few more! Great Service!
