What others had to say
My husband and I visted Dr. Merchant for the first time recently. We were both really pleased with his services. The receptionist was friendly and helpful with our insurance. Dr. Merchant performed a thorough exam and was friendly and well informed. I liked his easy, and unassuming style. We will definitley continue to use him as our eye doctor.
Dear KC, I appreciate your review of my practice. I would like to address a few of the things that you disliked about your visit. First I would like to apologize for any rude behavior you encountered in my office. I would appreciate if you would e-mail me with more specifics and a description of the staff person involved so that I can take steps to remedy this. Secondly, the form that you signed giving you the choice of dilation does state that your vision will be blurry for approximately three hours. Maybe I need to verbally clarify that in the exam room as well. Finally, the price of the contacts that you are in, after insurance discounts and rebates, is 1.4 times higher than the internet site that you found. My price that the patient actually pays is less than one of the leading online contact lens sites when you consider rebates and discounts. In addition most insurance companies have an allowance for contacts which reduces the patient's out of pocket expense well below what they could buy them online for.In your particular case it is a better deal for you to buy online, however that doesn't apply to every contact lens available and to every patient's circumstances. Every patient has the ability to shop around for the best price they can get on contacts. Again, please e-mail me with more specifics so that I may make some improvements for a better experience for all. Thanks, Ken Merchant, O.D. email@example.com (P.S. This
