My experience is always very pleasant. I believe customer service is the backbone of an organization. I came to Optometry by the Bay because my daughter and grandson had such pleasant experiences with your office and the service provided..
Doris, so awesome to see you this year for your first complete eye exam with us. We know how changing doctors can be challenging. Thank you for your trust in us and your very nice comments. See you again next year! -The doctors and staff of OBTB
everyone was some friendly and made me feel very comfortable. The location was very clean and easy to find. The doctor was so nice and explained everything perfectly. She took the time to go over everything without making me feel like she was in a hurry. This place is so warming. Im so glad I came here.
Thank you Gabriel! :) -The doctors and staff of OBTB
The medical part I give it 100% professional. The doctor was very informative of all the procedures they did to test my eyes. The administration side they were very professional and knowledgeable of my eye insurance. I just wished they had more variety of eye wear brands and more financial flexibility for payment.
Thank you for your review! Yes, we've sold out on many frames with the year-end crunch. But, we are in the process of restocking and bringing in new styles. We do accept Care Credit. You can apply and get approval in minutes, if you don't already have it. With Care Credit, shorter term financing options of 6, 12, 18 or 24 months, no interest is charged on purchases over $200 or more when you make the minimum monthly payments and pay the full amount due by the end of the promotional period . Hope this may help. Thank you. -OBTB
