I thought Dr Klaahsen was just terrific, as was Carla.

I had a great experience yesterday at General Optical Co. in Porter Square. The doctor was incredibly informative, easy to talk to, and certainly knowledgeable. The staff members are wonderfully friendly people. Will certainly stay with this place for my eye exams in the future as long as I dont move away.

Service was fast and friendly, but I was charged $80 for my contact fitting, even after I said my insurance had a $55 co-pay for fitting. Then, I had to go home and spend 20 minutes trying to get through to the right person at my insurance company, who confirmed my $55 co-pay for contact fitting. Then, I called back to Porter Square Eye, and the person in charge of insurance had left. Now I have to follow up again today. I've wasted an hour of my own time on something that should have been done correctly by Porter Square Eye initially.

General Optical Co. replied:

I am truly sorry for any inconvenience. We do our best to look up insurances before appointments with the information that is provided to us from patients. Unfortunately it is impossible for us to know each patient?s insurance due to the vast amount of different insurances and different plans within each insurance. We were able to find one insurance plan with the information you provided us and billed you accordingly. Once additional insurance information was provided to us we contacted you to promptly credit you the difference.

Outstanding service, from expert eye exams to friendly, patient advice about choosing the right frames and lenses. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
