Purchased my glasses. Good experience and am looking forward to getting them. I was happy they helped me find the best discount.

Dr. Robert C. Bauman & Associates replied:

Thank you for your review! As you found out, we offer a large selection of glasses for all budgets and offer same day service on most glasses including bifocals and no-line bifocals. Glad we could help!

We're generally happy with the service we receive, however, no matter how early we schedule appointments in the day and regardless of whether we show up a few minutes early, we end up waiting for 45 minutes until seeing the doctor!

Dr. Robert C. Bauman & Associates replied:

We know that everyone's time is valuable! Although we work very hard to see most patients within 10 minutes of their scheduled appointment times, occasionally a patient with a medical eye emergency need urgent attention. Regarding your recent visit, an emergency patient presented with a eye injury (stick in eye) and needed immediate (and unscheduled) care.

Rest assured that if you ever have an eye emergency that needs immediate medical attention, one of our doctors will also be available to see you on an urgent basis.

In my experience, this office sets a new standard when it comes to eye care. The office staff are warm, polite, and knowledgeable. I specifically worked with Raquel a few times and by my second visit, she was pleasantly greeting me as I came through the door and checking me in for my appointment before I even made it to the reception desk.

I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Dr Vishton for contact fitting these past several months. I decided to try contacts again (having not worn them in 15 years) and I was a little taken aback by the cost of contact fitting in addition to the annual price of contacts. I wear a very high strength, expensive (usually custom made) contact lens and was not sure I was making the right choice. Let me start by saying that the contact fitting cost is nominal when you see the amount of time spent by this talented optometrist making sure that you absolutely love your contacts.

Over the course of several appointments, she (often) changed the contacts I was wearing, opting for ones which corrected a little better or felt more comfortable, until we finally arrived at a final set of lenses which had the best comfort and correction I could hope to find. It was at this point that I finally paid for a years supply, and this cost was significantly less than originally anticipated ... I was able to go with a commercial brand instead of custom made!

The guiding principle for this practice truly seems to be customer service. I considered becoming a patient many years ago after they did a quick, minor glasses repair (for free), even though I wasn't a patient at the time, but I felt a loyalty to the office I had been using for 30 years. When my optometrist retired and my wife had such a positive experience becoming a patient at Dr Bauman's office, I too elected to change. I have zero regrets and will continue to use the services at this office until they retire or until I move. You will not regret choosing Dr Bauman and Associates.

Dr. Robert C. Bauman & Associates replied:

Thank you for your very detailed review...As you found out, the over-riding principle in our practice is determining the most cost effective alternatives for our patients that will meet both their eye health and vision needs...Glad we met your highest expectations.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, from start to finish. Even picking out our glasses was fun thanks to the helpfulness and warmth of the staff.

Very modern facility. All the new equipment and toys!!

I really like the "Visit Portfolio " folder thingy you get to take home and review.

My visit was fast and professional. They explained everything very clearly and went over my insurance coverage with me.

Carfax - is respected as a dependable "web site" where information on your automobile as well as information on automobiles you may be interested in purchasing is stored. However, I do not find where "Duxbury Auto" participates in forwarding information on my vehicles to this site. I therefore recommend "Duxbury Auto" become an active member & join in the process of maintaining an historical profile of my automobiles. I want to show to future buyers I am proud of how I take care of my vehicles & therefore I can anticipate a fair return on my investment.
