I couldn't have scripted a more professional or pleasant experience than the one I received from Eye Care Associates of Hawaii-Honolulu. Everything explained and no undo pressure to purchase unneeded treatments or eye wear. No stern warnings to eat more carrots. All my potential financial obligations were explained in advance and again during each part of my exam.
The office staff dressed a little eccentrically (is that a word?) but I liked it and... it was October 31st so lots of people were doing it.
Two things stood out for me on this visit. First, Dr. Arakaki never once made me feel the usual "time is money" thing and attempt to rush me through any part of the exam. I can't recommend her enough. And second, when I was leaving, one of the office staff gave me a small gift box with a key chain in it. Very nice, but it wasn't the key chain gift that will make me remember this visit and recommend them to others. It was the look of pride in her eyes as she explained that the key chain was their way of acknowledging their 50 years of being in business. Simply impressive all around. thank you Eye Care Associates.
